Jeans are a staple in any modern woman’s wardrobe. My jeans get worn more than any other article of clothing in my closet. I’ve asked a few of my favorite fashion bloggers (who also happen to be moms!) to share their favorite pair of jeans, why they love them, and any tips they have on how to style those jeans to perfection. Read about your favorite cut to get some new ideas, and possibly find a new cut to try!
1. Bootcut Jeans
“I love bootleg jeans in a dark blue wash because they will never ever go out of style! Not to mention they are universally flattering and elongate just about any pair of legs. Also, they offer loads of versatility and can be dressed up or down. My favorite way to wear them, however, is with a white top tucked in, a simple belt, and a tan pair of heels for a classic yet fresh look.” — Brooke White of The Girls With Glasses
2. Skinny Jeans
“When it comes to jeans, they need to be comfortable! To compliment my many curves I’ve gained since birthing three beautiful kids, I need something with a little stretch. I love these RockStars Mid-Rise Skinnies from Old Navy in a dark wash. A tucked in quarter sleeve blouse in any color and a skinny belt makes this my go-to outfit for running errands on my free days with and without kids!” — Destiny of Just Destiny Mag
3. Wide-Leg Jeans
“Fashion ruts, a formula works, then it’s a uniform. I love having a piece like these high-rise, wide-leg jeans that break up the daily diet of skinny jeans and tees. And this ’70s trouser leg is not only on-trend, it’s super flattering. Comparisons always make what’s big — bigger and what’s small — smaller. So comparing my broader hips to my narrower ankles, means even wider hips. But comparing my hips to a wider flare, means narrower hips. I also love the higher rise, [which means] no gaping and a high, happy backside.
But beware, this is a tucked-in [shirt] or cropped top option. Longer lengths and thick fabrics are going to cloak narrower areas and leave you with nothing but volume. Blazers and cardigans can dip below your waist, but make sure you expose at least a few inches of your waistline with either a full- or half-tuck.” — Reachel Bagley of Cardigan Empire
4. High-Waisted “Mom” Jeans
“These “mom” jeans are my favorite, perfect to throw on [on] a lazy day. They are comfy and easy to style: throw on a belt, a crop top or oversized tee, and you’re ready for the day.” — Madeleine of Alexandra Fashion Co.
5. The Boyfriend Jean
“My style is a combination of feminine and tomboy. Boyfriend jeans bring a tomboy quality to my outfits, and paired with heels it’s the perfect balance.” — Alex of AVE Styles
6. Super Skinny Jeans
“I love these super skinny jeans because they’re super comfy. They also have a lot of stretch, which means I’m not wrestling to get them on. Because they’re on the tighter spectrum of fit, I like to pair them with something loose on top. For fall, sweaters are a great choice to give your outfit balance. Super skinnies are also great because they can be paired with just about any shoe: ballet flats, heels, cropped boots, high boots, etc.” — Summer of The Girls With Glasses ShowMore On
