Rachel Comey, respected indie designer, has gone and produced the most cray-amazing jeans for resort 2015. They are resplendent in their mom-jean-ness, boasting a very tall waistband paired with a generous rise, pressed pleats, slant pockets and a ever-so-slightly baggy front yoke that says, "I don't care about looking sexy."
Comey's simply taking a new trend—the lighter-wash, 100% cotton, higher-rise mom jean that's captured fashion's eye—to its most exquisitely absurd extreme. The most bonkers thing about this is we actually...like them. Pair them with a blousy top and '80s bangs at your own risk.
