Let me be straight here – denim is a bit of a bitch. There are few wardrobe items more rewarding than a perfectly fitting jean, but the actual process of finding said perfectly fitting jean is a nigh on impossibly feat.
Point in case – I’ve been looking for some mom jeans for a while. Granted, they’re a bit of a trend item. And granted, they are unflattering by definition. But, like with every piece in my collection, I thought about this purchase a lot. Then I thought about it again. And then I decided they were, indeed, a good (fantastic, even) idea. But therein lies the rub – I tried model after model and none of them really fit the bill. At one point I ordered two different styles of ASOS’s own brand mom jeans in the exact same size and I could have fit in one pair twice, whereas the other pair barely had any breathing room. Baffling.
