Mom jeans are right behind nylon fanny packs and cargo shorts on the short list of things the fashion set is allergic to. Or, so we thought. Leave it to Scarlett Johansson to give the baggy high-waist denim a shot of effortless cool.

The blonde bombshell, whose sex appeal knows no bounds, stepped out in N.Y.C. with a standard issue pair of mom jeans (haphazardly cuffed, too) that she casually elevated with a knotted button-down that revealed a sliver of midriff. She rounded out her look with red frames, a gold bar necklace, a black cross-body, and slip-on printed espadrilles—the perfect outfit for the girl on the go.

In all honesty, only the likes of ScarJo could make mom jeans look this good.
