I’m sure none of you are strangers to the skinny jeans, bootcut jeans, straight jeans or boyfriend jeans. I didn’t think anything would ever come between me and my skinny, but that is until I discovered the mom jeans! It’s gaining popularity in the straightsize fashionworld and I can’t WAIT until it makes the crossover to plussize fashion.
Huh? what is a mom jeans?
Mom jeans are highwaisted, loosefitting jeans. Similar to a boyfriend, but higher, just below your belly button. But what really sets them apart, as far as I’m concerned, is not so much the fit as the fabric: mom jeans have very little stretch to them. A lot of jeans, and pretty much all jeans in plussize, are stretchy. Putting on my momjeans for the first time was very weird to me, cause I don’t think I’ve ever worn a pair of jeans that wasn’t superstretchy. But now, I really like the structured feel of it, so I’m definitely hooked!
How I styled my mom jeans
I won’t be throwing out my skinnies any day soon, but these are definitely a fun new addition! Here, I paired it with a simple T-shirt (don’t you just love the quote? “confidence is the best outfit”) and some heels. I also love this look with my oversized baggy Zizzi black label collection lightweight coat… This is far from a typical outfit for plussize girls, and I’m sure plenty of people will think it’s “unflattering” or “unsexy” but I’m too busy digging this look to care about those opinions. #sorrynotsorry
