Mom jeans

Fabulous image comes to you via HipCandy.
The verdict on high-waisted jeans is that they are officially "in"; a trend legitimated from designer apparel all the way down the fashion food chain to TopShop, H&M, and Zara. I'm of two minds on this trend: I love the high-waisted and wide-legged sailor pant, but the skinny pant version is unflattering; creating what I refer to as "long-bum syndrome". Are you in on this trend?

The Cheap Monday Eiffel tower jeans are kind of scary. You really have to break that long-crotched illusion with something. Before, I was kind of on the fence about this but now, skinny and high-waisted = bad combo. Works on some girls, though.

That SNL skit makes me double over EVERYTIME.

Yeah, does work on some girls, but the really extreme high waisted ones are not very understandable. They are a little more than heinous.

Gulp. These scare me. I'm sure there are, like, two women that look acceptable in these. I'm not one of them.
