Am I cool enough to pull of Mom jeans? Probably not.
Am I going to do it anyway? You’re spot on, I am.
Now I may be very late indeed to this party, but I’ve finally got my hands on a pair of Mom jeans – something I’ve never had the confidence to wear – apparently I’ll happily leave the house in bright red trousers, but Mom jeans are a different story all together!
I have seen so many people rave about Mom jeans, I’ve read a lot of the whole ‘once you’ve tried Mom jeans theres no going back to skinny jeans’ and you know what, I think I’m converted! No more uncomfortable wedgies, no more feeling like I’m being sucked in so much I can’t breath and you know what my favourite thing about these are, I can wear actual knickers (not the skimpy uncomfortable ones that go right up) and no one knows!! VPL’s are a thing of the past! I’m not sure if thats too much information, but then again, who wouldn’t be excited about that.
I’ve been making a conscious effort recently to dress more to how I want to dress and not hold back. All my life I’ve been worried about what others might think about my fashion choices, that I’ll get odd looks for wearing double denim and docs, or wearing pinstripe trousers, but in all honesty, I love it, so why should I care, right?! Watch me say this, then go back to wearing skinny jeans and biker jackets next week…I tried..
So I had been on the hunt for a pair of Mom jeans for the longest time now, and I mean the longest time. I’d seen so many of my blogger friends wear them and look incredible, and I thought you know what, lets give them a go…reckless, I know. I had a wander round town and couldn’t find any I liked in stores, so hopped straight onto Missguided, long and behold they had the Mom jeans of my dreams! (I hope you’re just as satisfied as I am that that rhymed). I had been after a pair that were slightly distressed, I’ll emphasise the word slightly because the jeans that I have gone fore a very distressed (like me really). I mean one wrong move when putting them on in a dazed state in the morning and I’ll probably end up with a pair of shorts.
Anyway, when they first arrived, I tried them on when I was pale, make up less and in need of washing my hair, it had got to the point where even French braids could hide the grease – a rocky mistake. So of course, at first I hated them, but long and behold, an evening of pampering that included, tanning, face masks, exfoliating and a good hair wash, I woke up feeling like a new woman and I feel in love with these jeans. I will probably be wearing these with every outfit for the foreseeable future, and I’m not mad about that at all.
Going onto styling these jeans, I think they are so versatile, lending themselves to be paired with anything. Oversized tops, body suits, jumpers, heels, docs, you name it, I’m probably going to pair it with them. The outfit that I have opted for in this particular shoot, is just a plain nude, front twist jumper from Femme Luxe, and a pair of taupe suede boots from New Look. A super casual, yet stylish, very blogger-esc outfit. I cant wait to experiment with different styling ideas with my new favourite jeans! I actually have a few gigs coming up, I think these jeans will look super cool with a band tee and a pair of docs!
What’s your favourite way to style Mom jeans?
All my love,
