I Dream of JEANie

I’d say, most days you’ll find me in denim. They are a wardrobe staple and I am so grateful for the current high waisted/mom jean/crop ankle trend. While skinny jeans will forever remain a staple, I warmly welcome this more relaxed and I think, more flattering style. The crop ankle works especially well on petit frames and with crop tops trending, they compliment each other. This is not to say I only wear crop tops with my high waisted jeans, but I think it balances out really well as it keeps the abs under wraps. If this look in not your thang, any blouse or sweater will do.
These jeans can be paired with sneakers, sandals or stilettos.
My first pair of mom jeans were by Rachel Comey. Ironically, I first saw them on my “daughter” Sonia and copy-catted her. I had to have them and they remain a fave. Next were my M.I.H. denim Jeanne Jean which I wore alot this past summer. I have since taken a break as my mother suggested they were too momish.
My two recent must haves are the GRLFND Helena High Rise Straight Crop with a raw cut step hem and the oh so soft DL1961 High Rise Tapered Jeans. These are seriously yummy.
While Nili Lotan’s military crop jeans are not a mom jean, I love the casual and cool ease of this style and am a huge fan of the zippered ankle.
For those who consider themselves “holy”, Moussy makes some great options. For the “unholy” crowd I recommend Frame’s re-released denim jean.
My denim wish is that this trend is here to stay.
