Two words. Mom Jeans.
My sister and I have been on a serious search for jeans. Somehow with our ever expanding midsections, the fight to avoid the muffin top has become quite serious. An easy solution would be the mom jeans with high waist that would allow our stomachs to rest comfortably. But, we have come to realize that comfort may need to be sacrificed. The perfect jeans when you’re over 40 need to do work. They cannot go gently into that good night…They need to lift and cradle the butt, contain and flatten the stomach, and snuggly fit the legs without evoking images of Italian sausages. Seems like a lot to ask, but I think they are out there. And, with the impending cold weather, a good pair of jeans is a must. Go out, find a nice pair of fitted skinny jeans, and a pair of straight leg dark washed jeans – both of which should do some work to make you assets look as good as possible.
The holiday time is a great time to find bargains too. One of my favorite pair of jeans actually comes from New York & Company. I think we know enough not to try to wear jeans for juniors – hence the success of Not Your Daughter’s Jean. But, as we shop must fight any urge to allow ourselves to succumb to the hideousness of Mom Jeans. Happy holiday shopping – I would love to hear about your jean purchases.
