Mom Jeans

11.24.2016

"New York people aren’t wearing mom jeans because people in Nebraska wear them. They’re wearing them because people in Nebraska don’t. "

At first, everyone was confused but "Mom Jeans" are back and are a thing for a while now. Sad (or not?) to say that skinny jeans are slowly fading away and are giving the spot back to more regular jeans. Initially worn by the hipsters in an ironic way, people now are wearing Mom Jeans in the most sincere way. Even me: it's about time that I muster my courage and wear one pair of those. Unflattering, way to high - high waist, weird fit and the subject of derision, so what is the hype about? First, 90's nostalgia: as a 90's baby, I grew up around icons like Cindy Crawford, Julia Roberts, Jennifer Aniston and other super models that rocked Mom Jeans like no one. 2) We find now a wider range of sleeker and more modern cuts than before. 3) It does make the waist look smaller and the legs look longer. 4) One of the rare kind of jeans that fits the modest fashion closet perfectly. 5) Last but not least: comfort. Finally a trend that doesn't ask you to be dolled up perfectly and has that "je m'en fiche" french chic side that we can use in many different ways. 

For my first Mom Jeans moments, I  kept it simple with a dark blue denim paired with a classic white shirt and a brown jumper for more modernity.
