Out with boyfriend jeans, in with mom jeans.
– Me: Mum, would you wear these jeans?
– Mum: Not really. In fact, no!
So, why are called as such? Wikipedia defined mom jeans as “a humorously
pejorative term for a type of women’s jeans worn in the 80’s considered to
be unfashionable and unflattering to the wearer’s figure“. Someone out there
has another explanation?
Whatever the definition, it is unlikely to be flattering. Nonetheless, I
like my new Diesel model! Indeed, its straight cut, high waist and light
denim color are not easy to style. I tuck in my La Redoute V-neck stripe
shirt, put on a biker jacket, and slip into lace-up sandals. I was satisfied
enough with the look to wear it for an event in Berlin. How tempted are you
so far for mom jeans?
