Fashion over 50: Mott & Bow Jeans

Hey there friends! I’m back with a couple of new things to share on Fashion over 50 today. I love jeans and am always up for trying a new pair, so when I was recently contacted by a new to me company called Mott and Bow asking if I’d like to try out a pair of their jeans, I said yes. I do enjoy a good pair of skinny jeans. I know they’re not for everyone and many of you many not wear skinnies, but I think many of you probably do.

These are very comfortable, form fitting and very stretchy. There’s a lot that goes into making these jeans.

Here’s more about Mott and Bow from their website:

Mott & Bow was born out of a simple question: how can we get people premium grade jeans at a reasonable price? Using the finest denim fabrics from the best mills in the world and applying the manually intensive artistic processes in the laundry we transform the denim and make it look effortless. We stick to simplicity as our core design philosophy. With a 32-year denim heritage, our experience is second to none.

Now, their jeans are not inexpensive, but they aren’t the most expensive either at a little over $100.

I like the fact they these are high-rise, the Mott and Bow Ann medium wash high rise. They feel so much better to me to have them waist high. They are stretchy so have a lot of give, definitely like jeggings.

Mott and Bow is offering a 10% discount for my readers with the code SOUTHERN, it will expire the first week of July.

See how high the waist is? These are the Ann high-rise jeans in a medium wash and a 30″ inseam.

I paired them with a simple white T-shirt from Old Navy and this blue linen shirt jacket I got last year.

It’s a little more dressed up than regular jeans and I also got a new pair of wedge shoes that I’m just crazy about. They are from J. Crew and I’ve already worn them a couple times and love them.

I shared them last week and now I’ve had a chance to wear them and they are going to be my favorite new shoes of the summer. I think they will go with everything.

So that’s a casual jeans and linen shirt look with animal print wedge shoes. Another thing about these jeans is they are lighter weight for summer if you want to wear jeans but not put up with heavy and thick fabric. These are much more lightweight and better suited for summer.

  1. I always look forward to your Wednesday fashions; thanks for this post! One question – would you have purchased these at $100? I think about shipping costs (no clothing tax in my state) and return costs if I don’t care for the jeans. While $100 is a small price to pay considering how often they would be work, I’m just curious to know if you’d pay that much. Thanks for the inspiration.

    • HI, Mary, I would pay that much if I wanted to find a unique pair. I have paid almost that much for another pair I bought that are flare leg. I don’t normally pay that much though. I’m not sure what their return policy is on shipping costs, will have to check that out. I’m just putting these out there to share with you all, I know my audience normally likes lower prices items, but this is an option.

  2. Loving those shoes! Those jeans look very much like the Old Navy built in sculpt Rockstar jegging @ $40.

    • HI, Gina, they do look similar to Old Navy,but I have several pair of the sculpt Rockstar and some of them I like and some of them I don’t care for as much. These are form fitting without being too binding and some of my Rockstar jeans feel binding, if that makes sense. Not all of them, but some of them.

    I love those shoes. The website says they have a 3 1/4″ heel, but they don’t look that high on you. Are they actually that high?

    • HI, Marianne, I measured and they are 3 1/4″ high, but it doesn’t feel bad because the toe of the shoe is raised about 3/4″ too so it’s not bad at all. Most of my wedge shoes are this tall but they are easy to walk in.

  4. I was going to say the same thing – the rockstar jeans from old navy. I love them, and so much more reasonably priced.

    • They are a great price, I agree! This is just an option I’m throwing out there. I do like these a lot. I know my audience likes more budget friendly items.

  5. Very cute! I’m so happy higher waisted jeans have come back into style! And who doesn’t love a great leopard shoe?

    • Me too, Roxanne, the high waist is a lot more comfortable that’s for sure. I am in love with these shoes and will be wearing them all summer.

  6. I just found a pair of Matt and Bow Ann jeans at my favorite second hand store. And they still had the tags on. I paid $39 for them and the price was $96. I was so surprised to find some never worn. The girl that worked there said they were very nice high end jeans. I guess someone bought them and didn’t want to pay for return shipping. Who knows. Mine are the slim boyfriend and they are so comfortable. I got them at the Clothes Mentor. Very nice store and I think they have some in Atlanta. I would pay full price for these, and jeans do last forever.

    • Hi, Jan, thanks for chiming in on your find. That’s great! You lucked out for sure. I like them a lot too, the Ann fabric is a little thinner than some jeans and more weather friendly for summer. I like that part too and the Ann jeans also have a black thread instead of white so it changes the tone a little bit.

    Those jeans look great on you. Love your navy and turquoise colors on the patio.

  8. I really enjoy your fashion over 50 posts. Your style and price points are so much closer to mine than what I see from most other bloggers. Thank you for “keeping it real.”

    • Thank you, Stacy, I appreciate you saying that! I definitely am a budget shopper and try to share more affordable clothing.
