thinking about: mom jeans
I’ll start this week’s installment of “Thinking about:” by noting that I’m (more than) pretty skeptical of this style. Mom jeans? The first utterance brings up memories of laughing at that SNL skit. First glances have me thinking, “Well, of course it looks awesome on this fine, young model who is most certainly not a mom yet.”
But I’m curious overall about how the silhouette might look on my figure, and thinking this high-waisted style might work on me better than wide-legged pants do. Mom jeans typically aren’t skin-tight, and might either have straight legs, or a slight taper at the ankle. Most examples that I found are cropped, and if not, seem to be styled with a narrow turn-up. Light-wash denim is overwhelmingly the most popular color (as determined during my Very Serious Research), but I’m a sucker for black or dark grey denim at the moment (or, ahem, for the past several years).
Here’s some inspiration I found (and I have more on my Pinterest too!)
