Why I'm Finally Getting Rid Of My Low-Rise Jeans

Yes I am well aware it is the year 2021, I'm a little behind the times.

Why I'm Finally Getting Rid Of My Low-Rise Jeans

I am not someone who enjoys wearing jeans and I don't wear them all that often. When I do I normally opt for one of my 3 pairs of skinny jeans that I have owned for three years and normally pair it with some sort of crop top. While I had always noticed that they were a little low and rested right at my hips I had never really thought a lot about it until I was showing my friend the jeans so she could get a better look at them and she says, "don't you know that you're wearing low rise jeans". It finally all clicked why I never needed a belt and why when I wore them with a crop top you could literally see my whole stomach and why I was always a little uncomfortable in them. I didn't do anything about it for months because Corona hit and I didn't think there was a point and by the time I got back to school, I had completely forgotten about it and started wearing them again. While I still experienced the same problems it didn't occur to me why until I saw a photo of myself in them and immediately realized that it was time to buy a new pair of jeans. Cyber Monday luckily was two weeks later and there was a great deal on a pair of mom jeans from American Eagle so I purchased them and anxiously awaited their arrival.

When they arrived I was so excited and immediately tried them on and sent pictures to my friends who loved them. I was so shocked by how well they fit and how they looked really good with crop tops and t-shirts. Plus adding a belt made them fit perfectly and was a cute accessory that I hadn't really worn before because, with skinny jeans, belts aren't really needed. I have worn my pair of mom jeans so many times and haven't even touched my skinny jeans since. Today when my second pair of mom jeans arrived which I tried on and fit perfectly, made me realize that it was time to finally start phasing out the skinny jeans entirely which is something I should've done ages ago. The low rise skinny jeans trend was one that has been out of style for years and I am way behind on the times on this one.

If you are someone who like me only wore skinny jeans, please buy a pair of mom jeans. Trust me, they will change your life and you will never want to go back to wearing skinny jeans again. While both of my pairs are from American Eagle, I have been told that Target, Pacsun, and H&M have great pairs for a good price. 2021 is the year of new beginnings and by finally ditching the low-rise skinny jeans, I have created a new beginning for myself. Join me in finally getting with the times and get yourself a pair of mom jeans.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
