Let's be honest. I'm wearing mom jeans and... I love them. I found them yesterday at Value Village and I think the trick is the petite sizing. That just means they fit better on my short legs. People can say what they want about tapered jeans and high waists. My ass looks great! And can I get an amen for the stomach flattening miracle that is high waisted denim?? Plus, the tapered jean was just the precursor to the skinny jean. So there.
Something tells me you are probably a little like me: you haven't tried on real denim in a while and you don't even realize it. Everything is adulterated with stretchy this and Lycra that. It fits sooo differently when it's just pure, 100% cotton. There's a certain confidence that comes from wearing something as indestructible as a classic pair of Levi's. It's such a forgiving fabric in more ways than one. I can wear a lighter wash without my legs looking like denim sausages, because the fabric isn't clinging to every dimple, and I won't worry if they get a little dirty out the garden. They were, after all, invented for the indestructible settlers of the Wild West.
So run, don't walk, to your nearest thrift shop and treat yo self to some vintage Levi's! Your butt will thank you for it.
