I stumbled across an awesome blog post tonight from a site called Grasping for Objectivity. The author, Rachel, put a lot of time into showing examples of what is a “mom jean” (and must be avoided at all costs!) and what is a flattering jean that defines the rear end and has figure-flattering features.
Rachel shares that the following elements can make or break the “mom jean” status of a pair of blues:
- pocket length
- pocket width
- pocket angle
- pocket design
- lack of pocket
- color of jean
- flare of jean
- rise of jean
- length of jean
To prove to you that Rachel knows her stuff, I give you two examples, from her original Mom Jeans post, titled “Mom jeans and the Dreaded Long Butt”
Life is too short and you are far too young to be wearing mom jeans. Yes you, and don’t go arguing with me about your age. EVERYONE is too young to wear unflattering jeans that elongate and flatten the booty. Go check out Rachel’s full post and all of her great tips — your behind and those behind you will applaud you.
