Ok, now I “get” it. Once you wear mom jeans, you never go back. Yep, I said it! They are SO practical, and if you ask me, they are the new boyfriend jean. So what makes ’em great? Allow me to explain.
They are versatile. If you recall, the last time I hit the streets of SF in mama pants, I was wearing them with stiletto heels. Today, however, I’m wearing them with white booties! I love a pair of jeans that I can style with all the shoes in my closet. Pro Tip: extend the life of your mom jeans and cuff don’t cut. Without permanently altering the length, they’re suitable for shoes of varying heel heights.
Mom jeans are comfortable. I can hardly believe those words just came out of my mouth because I used to write off pants that did not stretch. Let’s just say, #BigBootyProblems. But, as it turns out, jeans made out of 100% cotton are totally doable if they are a relaxed fit. HELLO mom jeans! Aside from the comfy fit, the high waist is also very desirable. Gone are the days of
plumber cracks low-rise pants! Rather, waists are getting higher and tops are getting shorter. Welcome to 2018! They call ’em “mom jeans,” but truthfully they’re jeans for any active woman. Ain’t nobody got time to stop and pull up their drooping drawers.
Now you already saw me style my MJ (I’m abbreviating from here on out because I sound like a broken record) for a night on the town. Today’s look is perfect for bopping around a sunny San Francisco day. Jonathan says I look like Big Bird in this shaggy cardigan, but the last time I checked, Big Bird doesn’t wear crop tops and mini cat eye sunglasses. Take that!
