Call off the search…the hunt is over!! I know it’s a bold statement, but I do believe I just may have found the mother of all denim! I’ve always been a fan of flares and bootcut jeans with a lived-in wash, so when perusing new denim in stores or online, this is usually my starting point. I just don’t think you can beat the silhouette and lengthening effect a good flare provides, and with the slightly higher waist and great fading, this pair by Mother provides a timeless denim staple to any closet. You can read my tips for ensuring a great fit for flares here. Length is everything when it comes to flared or bootcut jeans, and as you can see, the hemline of this pair falls to just slightly above the ground with heels. This is only the second pair of Mother jeans I have tried, and the first pair was too short for me. So make sure you know your inseam, and if you’re are on the petite side, don’t be afraid to invest in the services of a good tailor. It can make the world of difference!
This popular “Cruiser” fit by Mother arrives at your doorstep with a lived-in feel. It’s like a great pair of vintage Levi’s without the unfortunate “mom” fit! In fact, the fit is exactly what distinguishes the “Cruiser” from the many other cute flares out there…it is just so good! And what a perfect canvas for showcasing a classic crisp white shirt (mine is from Zara) and traditional accessories like a favorite calf hair leopard belt and nude d’orsay pumps! This outfit will never be one to look back on with embarrassment; it is traditional and versatile, and the jeans carry it all! Stay tuned for my review on the Mother “Looker” jean….the perfect skinny cousin of this fave flare!
