“Surround yourself with the dreamers and the doers, the believers and thinkers, but most of all, surround yourself with those who see the greatness within you, even when you don’t see it yourself.”
I hope all of you are doing great in life and happy with the way you are.
One thing I always feel about our generation is that it has become obsessed with trying to fit in their clothes rather than buying something that fits them.
We are a mix of all those people who are fitness conscious and health nut; a large percentage of it go for the balancing equation of consuming unhealthy food on a regular basis with the perception that the more they work out, the less guilty they’d feel about their incapability to have a strong will to stop themselves from consuming junk every single day; a combination of weak and strong-willed people who have their couch potato moments once in a while and their glorious workaholics moments as well when it comes to something that we are passionate about and impossible to be distracted from.
Most of us are the ones who never fail to convey our message about how important it is to have flavors in our food, cheese in our lives and chocolate in our desserts. In short, the foodies and then, there are the ones who neither try to work out nor choose healthy food but instead, they try to forcefully fit in the clothes they own for a very long time and more often than not, end up looking uncomfortable in whatever it is that they wear.
All are perfect but the last one. It is good to be surrounded by people who are conscious about the kind of food they are consuming, and have cheat days occasionally, on which you can eat whatever it is you have been craving for. Then, there are those who feel food is the ultimate pleasure in life and they would go on a world trip just to try out the various types of cheese around the world and a large variety of chocolate & wine that this beautiful heel of a unique planet has to offer us.
The problem comes when you encounter people who fit in the last category. When you try to pull off a look that you yourself feel is awfully uncomfortable but you go for it anyway because it’s trending and it’s in Vogue and yet, you continuously fail to find something that fits you well and make you stylish at the same time.
One thing girls need to understand is that fashion is not just about wearing skinny clothes or even very revealing clothes. I know from personal experience that almost all the girls face the issue of finding a perfect jeans for their body type in India because the fitting is just always wrong.
If the jeans fits your thighs perfectly, it will be loose from the waist area. Of it is perfect for your waist, it will be too tight for your thigh. Some are so terribly stitched that your calves start to ache if you wear them too long and the other ones are just too tight from the crotch area.
However, I have recently found a perfect solution to this one hell of a serious issue. With the vintage fashion finding its way back into our lives now, this jeans has been a boon for me since the day I have found it. I have been buying nothing but the exact same type of jeans in different styles but the type remains same.
It is the MOM JEANS.
But what is a mom jeans and how is it different from boyfriend and girlfriend jeans?
According to Pop Sugar, a mom jeans is usually high waist while the boyfriend jeans is loosely fit and a girlfriend jeans is basically just a feminine version of a boyfriend jeans in the sense that it is more fitted, better looking and made from a fabric that is more rugged.
“If you raided your mom’s closet in the ’90s, you most likely came out with a pair of the “mom jeans.” Though the style has a stigma with being unflattering and unfashionable, contemporary brands have brought them back in full force – offering destroyed washes and cropped options. When it comes to the qualities of what makes a mom jeans, the style is usually high waist, making your bum appear longer and flatter, and the zipper area has a relaxed fit.”- Pop Sugar
Why mom jeans is the perfect choice for all the girls?
No matter what your body type is, mom jeans will always and always be loyal to you and your thighs. This pair of jeans is little loose from the thigh and crotch area and the fact that it is usually high waist makes sure you not only look effortlessly stylish but also, slim and tall.
If you have slim thighs, it will still suit you very well. It will be little loose but not too loose and you will always find a size that your body can be extremely comfortable in. Not only this is the easiest pair of bottoms to pair but it is also perfect for any occasion and it never fails to bring out the feminine side of you, which I feel boyfriends jeans does not. It can be worn as a formal wear and as informal wear as well.
I’ll be posting more posts on how you can style your mom jeans soon. Till then, let’s see how it looks in the ways that I styled it.
I wore this top in three different ways to show you that how a loose top can be styled in different ways; as a knot top, as a one-shoulder top and as an off-shoulder top.
