i suppose this is a rather fitting subject considering that i am now actually a mom. which means that whenever i wear any pair of jeans, they can technically qualify as “mom jeans.” but more specifically, i’m talking about old-school, high-rise, tapered leg denim. i know i’m not the first or last to talk about such a ground-breaking subject (in fact, i just read a pretty funny dissection of #normcore on the cut earlier this week). but whatever, i’ve been hoarding inspiration photos of said jeans for a few years and decided to share some of them since i recently purchased a nice pair of slim-fitting asos farleigh mom jeans that i’ve been wearing almost every day lately. they have a cool retro vibe that hearkens back to the ’90s, which i hear is popular with the kids these days.
i could go on about how it seems silly to call a classic pair of levi’s a “trend.” but it’s silly to even point that out. we’ve all read article after article about things as ground-breaking as bold red lipstick. or how pink is totally “in” this season. and on the subject of jeans, you’ve got your “boyfriend jeans” and your “dad jeans,” why not append another silly label to what is essentially a pair of standard 501s? so excuse me while i go put on my mom jeans. coz i’m a mom now, duh.
