Most Wanted: Mother Crop

The jeans we’re obsessing over right now

You can always count on Los Angeles to churn out cool and covetable brands. Take Mother: Founded in 2010 by Tim Kaeding and Lela Becker, Mother Denim is known for its super soft denim—something that no NYLON fan can resist.

Every pair of jeans has a unique twist on a classic denim style, which perfectly describes our latest obsession. These black skinny jeans are slightly cropped in the front, a look that we can pretty much guarantee has shown up on the Instagram accounts of all of your favorite bloggers in the last few months.

To keep the cut hem at the ankles from appearing too perfect, slightly frayed edges give them the well-loved quality that jeans tend to accumulate after years of wear.

The athleisure trend isn’t going away any time soon, but for girls who aren’t committed to breaking out a pair of sweats for everyday occasions, these jeans give a nod to the sporty girl, without dipping into sportswear brands.

Whether you pair them with graphic tees, combat boots, or a fuzzy jacket, these jeans will make any denim lover fall just a bit more in love.

Mother Crop, $218, available at Mother.
