Mom Jeans – 8 Best Ideas You Can Try Now

Mom Jeans - 8 Best Ideas You Can Try Now

Today we will be taking a stroll into childhood, remembering the times when we used to go through our mom’s makeup and clothes.

We wanted to be big and all grown up by painting half of the face with lipstic and wearing the oversized pants and dresses. Remember the high heels and the adorable attempts at being a lady at the age of 5?

Well, there was one thing that was and is, even today, regarded as a “mom” thing. Yup, mom jeans. Those jeans with a high waist and baggy front that busy moms wore.

While to some these seem old-fashioned and really unflattering to wear, especially when you are a young adult, 2017’s trends have brought this style of jeans back.

They are really easy to match in different outfits, styles and shoes. Either for a daily outfit, or for a casual night out, mom jeans will look just right.

Even celebrities are wearing them and not only mothers, like Scarlett Johansson, but also young women, like Kendall Jenner.

We have picked eight beautiful designs, so you can also partake in this trend.

How To Choose The Best Swimsuit For Your Body Shape + Examples

How To Choose The Best Swimsuit For Your Body Shape

Summertime means beach time and that, in turn, means swimsuit shopping.

When it comes to swimsuits, much like with other clothes, it was bad enough that the selection in local stores was abundant, but now there are thousands of options to choose from online stores, too. This only makes it more difficult.

Let’s be honest ladies, just like last year, you will want to buy at least half of the designs available this year as well.

Now, this brings us to another thing that will affect the shopping: body shape. Despite how cute that floral bikini you saw in a photo looks, depending on the shape of your body, it might not be a smart choice.

Each body is different, true, but there are four general shapes that swimsuit designs are based on: apple, pear, rectangle and hourglass.

The point in identifying your body shape is to learn how to shop correctly, in order to choose clothes that will highlight the best features of the body. This will create a more flattering appearance and in turn, you will feel confident in knowing that you look beautiful.

Vans and Levi’s: How To Style Them, 3 Outfits Ideas

Vans and Levi's Outfits

There are few clothes that you can wear in several different occasions. One of those clothes are jeans. We can all agree that you can wear jeans practically anywhere and depending on the top and shoes, the combinations and outfit styles are limitless.

They go with sneakers, flats, sandals and of course, high heels. There is nothing you can’t match them with, whether it is color or design.

With that being said, we can also agree that few jeans brands are as popular as Levi’s. When it comes to designs, there are so many and it is in a sense unfair, that we cannot have them all. But we must not despair, because even their simplest designs can make your look shine.

What we are here for today, is a specific jeans and shoes combination: Levi’s and Vans.

Vans, much like Levi’s jeans, are also versatile in style and design. This gives you the freedom to wear them with whatever it is you feel like wearing. Pants, jeans, shorts, skirts, dresses, Vans go with any look. They bring a relaxed look to your outfit and are also incredibly comfortable. Especially for those that walk around a lot.

To better illustrate how well they go with each other and other clothes, Kristen Stewart‘s outfit in the photo is a perfect example.

9 Tips To Make Your Legs Look Longer

Tips To Make Your Legs Look Longer

Biologically, women tend to be considerably shorter than men. While that in itself is not something to mull over, often it means that a shorter body, equals shorter legs. And we would all love to have those long, slim sexy legs, which look great with anything.

Luckily, women started wearing high heels, giving the appearance of not just being taller but elongating the legs and making them look much slimmer. Heels are great for pushing up your bum look and giving that subtle sensual rocking while walking.

Any woman that has worn heels will tell you that sometimes (read: most of the time), heels are quite uncomfortable. We are certain you have experienced that yourself.

Because of that, unless necessary, most of us ladies out there would gladly skip wearing them and put on a pair of comfortable flats. But what about those dreamy long legs then?

Jeans for Big Thighs but Small Waist? Some Tips and Ideas!

Jeans for Big Thighs but Small Waist

Shopping for pants and especially jeans is not an easy task, and for curvy women with bigger thighs it is less so. Especially if you happen to have a small waist, as well.

From jeans that won’t make it up past the thighs, to those who just won’t zip up because your thighs stretch them out, we feel you! And that is why we put our heads together and looked high and low for some of the best jeans for women with curves. And we are very happy to bring you ten different designs, for you to choose and pick from.

As a general guide, before we get into this selection, when you have a small waist and bigger hips or thighs, we would recommend looking for jeans that have some elasticity to them. They should have elastane in them, and preferably have some viscosity, too.

Not only will this make them easier to put on and the fabric more stretchable, it will also make you look much better. Another plus of that, is that they will last longer, because the fabric won’t be forcibly stretched out.

That’s a nifty trick to keep in mind when shopping for jeans. But, if you wouldn’t mind adding some more information to your shopping knowledge, below you will find additional tips. They will come in handy next time and will save you time and money.

The choices we’ve included vary for different types of curvy shapes, including those for slimmer legs, as well as more muscular ones. With that out of the way, it is time to get started.
