Best Boot-Cut Maternity Jeans | Citizens of Humanity Kelly Boot-Cut Maternity Jean
These boot-cut jeans with an elastic belly panel were a staple in my maternity wardrobe. I actually purchased my pair at the beginning of my first pregnancy, wore them throughout my entire pregnancy, and pulled them back out to wear them throughout my second pregnancy. After I had my second baby, I packed them up and sent them to my newly pregnant sister-in-law, and now they are a staple in her wardrobe as well! The extended life span of these jeans is a true testament to how well-made they are. They will absolutely become your go-to versatile jeans that can be dressed up with heels or dressed down with flats or flip-flops. You’ll want to wear them every single day because they are super chic, super slimming, and super comfortable. There’s just one tiny catch: They’re cut long, so while the inseam is perfect for taller girls (I’m 5’10″), if your frame is petite, you may have to get them hemmed.
