They say you should shop around, find one or two pairs of great fitting jeans, and stick with that. It works for you. Why switch it up? I disagree. I do think it is important to shop around, and take time to find great fitting jeans. However do not (I REPEAT DO NOT) stick your self with only one type of jeans. Also, don’t label yourself. Just because you are a mom doesn’t mean you have to wear mom jeans.
I honestly don’t even remember my mom wearing mom jeans. In fact, she recently purchased her first pair of black skinny jeans. I’m proud to say she looks pretty darn good in them too. I hope those genes run in the family.
Speaking of skinny jeans. You don’t have to be skinny to wear them either. Just take the time to find a pair with a slightly looser cut. I have a pair of
Gap Real Straight jeans that I love. They aren’t too wide or skinny just a perfect mixture.
Remember these two things about skinny jeans. There is a difference between skinny jeans and jeggings(a cross between leggings and jeans). Secondly, they just don’t look good on guys. I prefer to see a guy in a nice boot cut pair of jeans any day.
While your shopping for that perfect pair of boot cut jeans for the man in your life don’t be afraid to take a cue, and buy yourself a pair of relaxed fit boyfriend jeans. They look great cuffed, or straight with the right pair of shoes.
There is still a time and a place for flair jeans too. I prefer them in a dark wash with heels mostly.
Honorable mention: trouser jeans
I don’t happen to own a pair of wide leg trouser jeans, but they can be a great option for casual Fridays.
I’m a proud non mom-jean wearing mom. Are you? What are your jean buying tips and tricks? Favorite style? Brand?
