Killing of 6 children being re-tried 25 years later

1. High-waisted jeans

Before Amy Poehler and Tina Fey joined the sisterhood of motherhood, they immortalized mom jeans' place in infamy via a "Saturday Night Live" parody in 2003. "Are you looking for the perfect gift for Mom this Mother's Day? Introducing Mom Jeans, exclusively at JCPenney. ... Cut generously, to fit a mom's body." The object of mockery boasted a 9-inch zipper.

Now that once-derided high-rise is back—in fashion—everywhere from Saint Laurent to Urban Outfitters, which embraces the once pejorative term in an exclusive style from BDG: The Mom Jean. The rise? 11.5 inches.

This new proportion also operates under aliases including the Girlfriend Jean, at Topshop and River Island. is out of stock of its 9.25-inch-rise Natsuki Dark Wash.

Expect this silhouette to gain even wider acceptance with the resurgence of crop tops, which many of us moms wore in another time and place, under a different moniker ("half-shirts"). Most of us won't be participating in that trend this time around.
