You've all heard by now that full legged trouser jeans are on the rise for fall. This is great news for us moms. After our childbearing hips have pushed out one or more kids, or we've put on a few pounds after all the anxiety that comes with adopting, those skinny jeans are not our friend. So lets rejoice in the fact that the jeans du jour just happen to be the absolute most flattering style for many of us.
This season, one of my favorite styles comes from Gap. The Long N' Lean Jean is currently on sale for $49.50 (reg. $59.50) through Sept. 12. The Long N' Lean Jeans is instantly slimming, with it's long and full leg. The fit is nice and generous, which is quite comfortable while working your way back to yout pre-natal weight. At this price, grab a pair in every wash. Just throw on a cute top, a pair of low heels and you're ready for a playdate!
For those of us who wear a larger size, take heart. There are several styles out there devoted to making you look your best. Never let a few extra pounds stand in your way of looking sleek and sophisticated. Know your best assets, play them up, and dress to impress. The Tummy Control Wide Leg Jean ($64.99) from Avenue is a great option for those who wear a size 14 and up. With a hidden power mesh panel for tummy control, these jeans are your secret weapon. Wear these on the days you want to look your best but you've been snacking too much at playdates, or just haven't shaken those postpartum pounds.
Another great option to keep you looking your best when you're not feeling your slimmest is a pair of Tummy Tuck Bootcut Jeans from ($98) Not Your Daughter's Jeans, available from Nordstrom. These are made from a patented stretch denim that slims you while lifting your rear. Who couldn't use a little help in this department? The stretch denim gives you an allover lift and really feels good on.
So no matter what your size, there's a pair of jeans out there just for you!
