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!

(L-R: Ciara, Diesel S/S '07, Jennifer Lopez)


To see my picks,

Grey Ant High Waisted Carpenter Jean, $330. These are the ones Ciara is wearing in the above pic.

Cheap Monday Stretch Skinny Jean, $65.

Free People Hi Waisted Sailor Trouser, $198.

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.

This is one trend that I don't think I'll be getting into.

Eeek only the real thin look good in this trend.

Best worn wide-legged over skinny. I think they only look good worn by someone with a svelte figure. Definitely not for someone with curves.

I couldn't wear them! I can just see saddle bags being accentuated and undesirable areas highlighted. Also, I am short and it just wouldn't work for me. I would have a fear of getting the front butt wearing these type of pants!!
