OK, Fashion Police Cadets, we need to talk about carrot leg jeans. In fact, we need to talk about the so-called "carrot leg" trend in general, because it’s everywhere right now, but that’s another post for another day.

We’re just going to come right out and say it: we think this is probably a Crime of Fashion. Let’s see: the tapered leg (yes, you can call it "carrot" all you like, but that there is a tapered leg if ever we seen one), the slightly baggy hips, the pleated front….
They’re Mom Jeans, aren’t they? They’ve just given them a new name and thought we’d be fooled. Is the "carrot" leg fooling you, though, readers? Or are you seeing a Mom Jean, and a Crime of Fashion here, like we are?
