I love white jeans. White clothing is having a moment anyway. Between Olivia Pope and Emily Thorne, I’m struck by the elegance of white. However, I’m not a high powered fixer in Washington DC nor a wealthy vigilante in the Hamptons. A girl can dream, right? Anyway, in my current state of pregnancy, anything too fancy is kind of off the table, and even with the amazing variations of white jeans they have these days (horizontal striped, polka dotted, distressed) it’s hard to find something that fits. Hence, the maternity jeans.
Luckily, there are several styles out there in white for pregnant ladies. I had already tried the J Brand Mama Jeans, which are wonderful, but I wanted to give DL1961 Angel Maternity Ankle Jeans a try, as they have the elastic band that stretches across the front, rather than hidden in the pockets like J Brand. DL1961’s elastic band style is common among maternity wear, but so I had to test it for myself. The cut is super low in the front, so it fits below the belly, which is great, because with 10 weeks to go, I am going to get a lot bigger in the next few months. Gulp.
The nice thing about maternity jeans is that they can fit like normal clothes. I’ve been wearing jersey everything, oversized, and jackets that don’t close, everything is a fix. What I like about these is I can just throw them on, and it doesn’t look like I’m wearing another pair of leggings (which I wear quite a bit). With a tee shirt, it’s comfort, with a blazer and a good pair of booties, it goes from slob to chic. Something I don’t take for granted these days.
Don’t I look presentable?
Anyway, if you’re pregnant, might I recommend that you get a pair of indigo maternity jeans, and a pair of white ones if you’re heading into spring and summer, and black if you are heading into fall or winter. I found that with my rotation of leggings, getting in a few pairs of real jeans have made me feel a bit better. Hopefully it will for you too.
