Everyone’s got their favorite cut of women’s jeans, whether they’re skinny, straight-leg, bootcut, low-to-mid-to-high rise, and more. When I’m traveling, and especially if I’m wearing my jeans on a long flight, I like a pair that’s comfortable and not too tight.


So lately, I’ve been testing out the Mott & Bow Mom Oliver Jeans.


Made with one of Mott & Bow’s heavier fabrics (99% cotton, 1% elastane), the slim-fit jeans have a high-rise waist that hug your hips and loosen a little bit throughout the leg. They have a refined look and are moderately stretchy—enough to be comfortable for mid-length airplane flights. They come in a dark blue wash, which makes them easy to dress up or dress down, whether you’re headed out on the town for the evening, or just walking around while checking out a new place on your adventures.


The heavier-weight fabric aids in keeping the jeans looking fresh when you’re traveling. They don’t wrinkle up as easily as thinner fabrics, so you don’t have to wash them after every use. But when you do wash them, turn them inside out and machine wash them before tumble-drying or hang them to dry.


Mom Oliver Jeans come in a waist size range from 24 to 32. Note that the jeans run small, so if you’re not sure about exactly what size you should choose, it’s a good idea to size up. I’ve been encouraged to see many women’s brands adding sizes to their available spectrum (both smaller and larger) in recent years, and would love to see Mott & Bow do the same. If jeans run small, it couldn’t hurt to add some sizes to the larger end to compensate.
