Two plus size preppy holiday outfit ideas with a blazer and Mom jeans. As I’ve said many times, I love mixing classic and preppy pieces with updated items. I believe that this juxtaposition is what makes style interesting.
Plus, mixing in trends keeps you from looking uppity and old.

And as I’ve said, mom jeans are back! Remember those? Just watch some of the early seasons of Friends to see the classic 90s straight leg, light wash, ankle-length denim trend.
Personally, I like them distressed for a more “updated” look because I actually wore them the first time they were popular. And I wouldn’t want anyone to think I have been rocking them ever since! So somehow, in my mind, the distressing helps with that.
Despite their popularity, not surprisingly, they are hard to find in plus sizes. Good American can’t seem to keep them in stock and Asos also has some limitations. But, I found some at American Eagle, which in case you didn’t know, now offers sizes up to a 24.
A Case for Distressing
For this look, I chose distressed Mom jeans. I hear a lot, like “a lot” a lot, of complaints about “hole-y jeans.” And I can understand wanting to look polished and age-appropriate, I do!
But, in some cases, the distressing helps keep things from looking too “stuffy.” Remember, that “biddy-factor” I talked about when wearing tweed? The same applies to conservative ensembles.
Because the rest of the outfit is so classic, one trendy piece like distressed jeans, will make you look cool rather than “too old” or “too much.” Trust me!
As long as you don’t have much skin showing through any holes, you’re totally appropriate. I swear!
Side note: if you’d prefer a heel, these come in the same tartan plaid.
