I do not have a human child but I have a Shih Tzu named GG and she thinks she is one. I am not even kidding…she stands on her hind legs and asks to ride my hip. Does that make me a mother or a #crazydoglady? I won’t be offended if you say so! No really though, mama or not, “mom jeans” are taking over the fashion scene and today is the first time I am wearing a pair on the blog. If you too are new to the trend, follow this style guide to avoid looking dowdy.
Form Fitting Top
Mom jeans are not tight fitting. In fact, I have yet to find a pair that even stretches. When you have a lot of baggage going on below the waist, balance it out with something form fitting up top. I am so confident I would have looked like I was wearing pants three times my size had I paired a boxy t-shirt with these suckers. Consider a crop top or a tight fitting bodysuit. I chose the latter and it is only $12.90 – score!
Hot kicks go a long way. Mom jeans with sneakers on a petite frame is not a winning combination. Pair ’em with a stiletto heel and now we’re talkin’! When you are styling a garment that can potentially come off as “frumpy,” a sexy shoe is a reliable remedy. I jumped at the opportunity to wear my Christian Louboutin sequin pumps (as seen here). I think they did the trick!
Ladies and gentleman, belts are back in style and I mean belts of ALL kinds. Remember those “fanny packs” we used to poke fun at. Yeah, those are now referred to as “belt bags” and homegirl is rockin’ one loud and proud (insert laughing emoji)! I must admit, it is so nice toting your belongings hands-free. But if a fanny pack is too much for you, synch your waist with a traditional belt instead. See ya on the street, hot mama!
