When I was asked to try out a pair of jeans called Not Your Daughter's Jeans, I'll have to admit, I was skeptical. Because if they're not your daughter's jeans, that means they must be...
But then I thought it would be sort of hilarious to try out mom jeans and walk around for a day with my pants pulled up to my ribcage. I went to the NYDJ website to choose a pair. Would they be stonewashed or baby blue? Would they have zippers on the sides? Would they be capris? French rolled? The possibilities were endless.
When I got there, though, I found jeans that looked sort of.... cool.
There were skinny leg jeans, bootcut, wide leg and flare jeans. There were black and gray jeans, faded jeans, deep indigo jeans, jeans with tiny, subtle rhinestone trim along the sides, which I really liked.
I started getting a little bit excited, particularly when I read that the jeans were all designed to lift and shape your beedonkadonk and hold in your... um.... pooch, making you look a size smaller.
Anyway, I chose a pair of jeans and when they arrived, I put them on right away. I don't know that I looked a size smaller, but...
I do know I loved the way they fit. They were incredibly flattering and fit me like an expensive pair of designer jeans.
And they didn't feel like Mom Jeans at all.
So here I am, eating crow and recommending Not Your Daughters Jeans. If you need something that's slimming and refined, well, these are your jeans. They're available at Nordstrom in every imaginable variation, from work trousers to walking shorts to cuffed boyfriend jeans. There's even a pencil skirt. This line has great investment pieces for your wardrobe and is a great way to stay stylish while reining in your problem areas.
