Christy Turlington Launches Citizens Of Humanity Maternity Denim Collection, And It's The Chicest Thing Ever

If the notion of figure-flattering maternity jeans whose proceeds benefit a maternally-focused charity makes the prospect of denim shopping seem less terrifying, Christy Turlington Burns' denim collection for Citizens of Humanity may be your next big purchase. With her abundance of entrepreneurial and humanitarian know-how, Turlington-Burns has managed to fashion a line of denim that is beneficial for women in more ways than one. This is one denim collection you may not wish to miss.

A philanthropic-minded model whose two children catalyzed the creation of charitable organization Every Mother Counts, Turlington Burns is the veritable embodiment of the term "style and substance." Turlington-Burns founded nonprofit Every Mother Counts with the goal of preventing injury and fatalities from childbirth, and has since taken great steps towards improving the health of expectant mothers around the world. At present, the foundation has accumulated $2,692,000 in funds to assist expectant and laboring mothers through organizations like Ancient Song Doula Services and Foundation For African Medicine And Education. Now, Turlington's denim collection will benefit the organization as well.

Available on ShopBop.com, the Christy Turlington Burns x Citizens of Humanity line will funnel proceeds to Every Mother Counts — and the collection happens to offer utterly covetable wares. Maternity wear has a somewhat sullied reputation thanks to the abundance of mumsy wrap dresses and floor-length muumuus that conceal all evidence of one's shape, but Turlington insists that pregnant women can dress well if they partake in the right styles.

"Maternity wear has come a long way since I was last pregnant. There is no excuse to not look stylish when you are a mom these days — and you can absolutely be comfortable and stylish at the same time,” Turlington-Burns stresses, and indeed the Citizens of Humanity collection is anything but drab. Whether you desire white skinny jeans or covet dark-wash boyfriends with more than a hint of stretch, Turlington-Burns' collection has the piece to suit your maternity style. This is one denim line that will make mothers feel beautiful both aesthetically and emotionally.
