for those of you not in NYC, we’ve experienced an obsession in recent months much akin to the cupcake mania of 2014 – overwhelming, in all boroughs and potentially very annoying if you’re not that into it. no, i’m not talking about the recent love for Milo Ventimiglia, i mean the fashion worlds’ craze with mom jeans. YOU READ THAT RIGHT.
mom jeans. baggy throughout, high waisted, best when cuffed. baby not included.
ok ok guys, when i first saw these, i thought i saw what looked like a bunch of gals at fashion week wearing diapers in their pantalones but much to my dismay many moons later, i’ve drunk the kool aid and i am diving head first into this trend like *whoa*. what convinced me? it’s simple really. all summer i wore this ONE PAIR of high waisted denim shorts and they made me feel FAB (minus the one guy who horrifically told me it makes my butt look flat, which if you know me is far from true). they cinched me in, made my thighs feel normal person sized, and for someone with no abs whatttttsoever, i even felt great rockin a crop top with them! i knooowww!
when i shared this with a friend of mine in the biz, she told me to revisit and reconsider my hatred for the ol’ mom jean because its the high waisted shorts grown up friend. LO AND BEHOLD mother of god she was right. i searched high and low and found exactly the perfect color, at the perfect price and the perfect fit. they look PERFECT with a tee + a blazer and i cant wait to keep playing with them.
i’m thinking this may be my next look with them? thoughts?
but really though – there’s tons of others i fell in love with as well, but i decided to settle on one until i found my groove, dont worry i’m definitely going back for more now. what about you – can you see yourself rockin this trend? let me know and tag me in your instagram #momjean photos so i can see and give you some love <3
