Which mom jeans do you highly recommend?
Coconut2010 · 10/06/2020 22:05
I have spent virtually all my life in skinny jeans when out of the office but I‘ve started to feel a bit out of fashion lately...
I therefore decided to try on my 15 yo DD’s mom jeans to wear at a party with trendy friends and omg I loved the look! An added bonus is that they are so comfortable (that I kept wearing them afterwards, to the annoyance of my DD). I’d like to get a few pairs for myself (blue denim, white and maybe black). Where do you recommend me to shop? Price is not an issue, I just want the look, cut, fabric, detail etc to look good. Shape wise I am quite tall and a small size 8.
Oh and which shoes do you recommend wearing with mom jeans? I live in plain Stan Smith and I feel with these I should be wearing trendier trainers with a higher sole if that makes sense. Any ideas welcome! (bearing in mind my style is more on the classic side).

Where are your dds from?
They sound perfect!

I would look where your DD got hers. Topshop do a decent selection as do Zara.

DD’s are from Stradivarius, a brand which is part of Inditex, Zara’s mother company (not sure how well known the brand is in the UK).
They look great but quite plain (even for me!) and I was hopping to find something a bit more refined.

I’ll look up Zara and Topshop, thanks a lot for the suggestions!
Any ideas regarding trainers to go with it?

I've got mom jeans from M&S that are actually pretty good. Also second the Topshop recommendation.
For trainers, have a look at Adidas Sleek, Adidas Superstars and Nike Air Force 1s.

Hush are pretty good
Sadly I’ve got too porky for mine

I posted this in the wrong place first but ppl need to see this !
Monki , an off shoot of H & M currently as of today , have 20% off their already very reasonably priced jeans
I recently got 2 pairs I’m absolutely delighted with and I’m very fussy
I’ve never really had the pair of perfect jeans , until now
I like sturdy denim with minimal stretch , can’t stand baggy arse or knee
True dark deep blue
Robust stout denim
Styles to accommodate my small waist in comparison to my hips

I wear the Farleigh Jean from ASOS, multitude of colours, lengths, sizes etc, next day delivery and free returns.

@Fiftysixthnamechange Thanks for the recommendation, I’ve just looked them up and they look good!
In the end I ended up purchasing the same as the one I borrowed from my DD as I was in a rush and didn’t have time to risk having to return them, but I will certainly remember them why I start my autumn shopping. I really like the look of these mom jeans and they are so comfortable. I have also bought a couple of boyfriend jeans and they fit pretty well. I haven’t worn my skinnies since July!! If I feel brave enough I will post a picture on this thread next time I wear them!

There are lots around, I'd look at:
River Island Blair jeans (I'm not normally a River Island type but these jeans are really good!)

I got mine in m&s - I love them!
