Skinny jeans are the only jeans I’ve worn for the last ten years – until I tried on these stupidly named ‘mom’ jeans (similar here).
I’m not sure what possessed me. I was shopping for a new pair of skinnies and somehow, they just weren’t doing me any favours. So I thought I’d try something new.
When I first got them home I did wonder what I’d done. For a start, I couldn’t sit down. Damn that high waist was snug! But after a few wears (my boyfriend had to tie my shoelaces the first time – I’m not sure what you do if you live alone) they loosened up. Still, I tried them on with every item in my wardrobe and cursed the fact I’d removed the tags.
When I tried this little ensemble on together, it clicked. Suddenly the jeans seem really easy to wear, and I love them. The blazer on top makes all the difference and I really like the smart/casual blend of the blazer and converse.
Thanks to my stubborn skinny jean loyalty I’m really late to this trend, but I’m so glad I tried something different. Next time you’re shopping for jeans, why not grab a different style – you might surprise yourself!
Do you like mom jeans? How do you wear yours?
