Trend Alert: High-Waisted Jeans

The 70s are back! What with wide legged jeans in full force and now high-waisted jeans, it is clear the skinny and low rise have competition. I am elated - you all know by now I have a thing for the carefree styles of the dazed & confused decade. While the high waist was around long before the 70s, try the 50s, it was given sex appeal in the decade of disco. I prefer this look worn with a wide leg, it just complements any body way better. Either way, if you've got the feelin' go for it!

These look great when you're standing up. Although I don't like always having to tuck in my shirt. And when I sit down the waistband tucks under my lower ribs.

Totally flatteribg, I've worn them and LOVE them, much easier to wear than low rise too, no thongage hanging out, but you HAVE to wear a proper fitting thong I only like them with a wide leg though, but that's just me I dress very 60's/70's

Most of us saw Jessica Sipmson. None of us liked it. Experiment failed... For me, although I can freely wear anything I like, high waist is just a big NO.
