high-waist-jeansAfter turning my 2 pairs of high waisted denims into a uniform for the past month, I am totally sold on this look, hence my biased fashion take on the high waisted trend: Keep ’em coming! Of course this style is everything you want and need in a look, sans the groundbreaking trait. They’ve been HOT in the 80’s, 90’s and, after a short break, what with the low waisted jeans and all, they’re back in fashion for sometime. high-waisted-jeans-look (2)high-waisted-jeans-trend-90s (2)high-waisted-jeans-trend-90sFrom those mom-jeans styles, to cool boyfriend cuts, to skinny jeans, the denims all have one major thing in common: a higher waist than we’d ever thought we’d wear.

So how does this makes us feel & look? high-waisted-jeans-look (6)Asofuckinglutely gorgeous! High wasited jeans add curves where they’re not, keep everything into place, super tight and fitted, accentuate curves in the hottest way possible, and give a bit of retro-urban-chic vibe to a look. They look best with tops tucked in, OR they’re the perfect gimmick for pulling off crop tops but never having to worry on skipping dinner to avoid a massive burger belly. Why? Cause the waist is so high that basically you just reveal a mid-riff and the stomach is kept under-wraps by the jeans. high-waisted-jeans-lookhigh-waisted-jeans-trendTried it and it works. Stuffed myself like a pig on Sunday while wearing high waisted jeans & cropped tee, and nobody died.

The trend of the high waisted jeans may not be new at all, and its comeback’s been hot for a while, but the question is: Do you still like them? Do you prefer them over the classic cuts?

Are they easier to style and more flattering?

Yes. Yes. Yes. I say. Elongating legs, looking more professional, hence even work appropriate when worn with blouses and tucked in shirts, looking trendy when the weekend hits the calendar, from summer to winter, they might just be the staple we’ve all been wearing while taking it for granted.

But you know what they say, why stop when it looks and feels so good?

Milk it while i’s hot. Why fix it if it ain’t broken.

Yeah.

You get the idea. ;)

    I am really loving the theme/design of your weblog. Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility issues? A couple of my blog visitors have complained about my site not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Safari. Do you have any ideas to help fix this problem?

    High waist jeans are back in style? Wow, how sad is this. While you may understand youre not original, what’s worse is you secretly tell yourself you’re ‘pulling it off’. In short, your just a young lemming wearing Mom jeans placating to your immature ego. Good luck and try in your later years to be original.

    I am a woman, and cannot believe that they ever came back into style. High waisted jeans make me want to vomit. I avoid looking at anyone wearing them for fear of barfing in their face. Low rise was much better and midrise is fine, but 98 percent of all people look like shit in them. Please stop!! One day you’ll look back and see how gross they are…and they don’t hide a gut…they just make everything nasty.

    I honestly think high waisted jeans are ugly on women, but actually look nicer on men. Women tend to gain weight in the ass and a high waisted jeans would tend to make a woman’s ass huge for most. This coupled with the fact that most women have a small torso and narrow shoulders would tend to make them look disproportionate in high waisted jeans. Men on the other hand tend to gain weight around their belly and not their behind in addition to having broader shoulders. As such a high waisted jeans would cover their belly and at the same time will not make their ass look disproportionately large compared to the rest of their body.
    I personally prefer low waisted jeans on both sexes though.

    From a male perspective… The girl with the yellow headphones is pretty much the only one who looks good, and let’s face it, with that body she’d look good in a garbage bag. She’s obviously not wearing any “vintage second hand” jeans, either. I know you girls have all kinds of shaping-magic underwear and what not, but the ass requirements for this style are ridiculous. And if that isn’t enough of a challenge for you and you want to up the stakes, go high waist + no back pockets + no center seam — I’ve only ever seen one girl pull it off. Ever. Still, if you’ve got your eyes on a nice pair of jeans that you like, don’t let me stop you… Confidence (not overconfidence, though) is sexy.

    I think only women like this style. Speaking to many other men, we all agree that this style is hideous. It did not look good in the 90’s and it looks even uglier today.

    High waisted anything makes you look horribly ugly, how can you not see this? Stop this terrible fashion!!!

        Good response, Fashion Tag. Very well, as long as you are wearing it because you love it and not because you think it looks hot to a man, that is fair.

        I can’t wait for the day that this style goes by the wayside. I think most women will look back in a few years and burn all those pictures of themselves in high waist clothing just like they did back in the 90s :)

          haha, might happen yeah. trends come and go, and what we loved yesterday we hate tomorrow and viceversa. That’s the cyclic inconsistent thing about fashion. Also, not all women dress to look hot for men. Some dress for the sake of fashion, fun & style. Thx. Cheers! :)

          Extremely unlikely. High waisted is the way people have always worn jeans until the 1990’s. I doubt anyone is going to go back to a low waisted style again. Its more like a low waisted style ending, then a high waisted style starting. I for one will never wear them again. The more I look back on low rise jeans the uglier they look.

      You might not like them, but plenty of guys do. Trust me. Anyhow, it doesn’t matter. This isn’t a high rise trend starting. Its the low rise trend ending. Basically jeans that sit at a persons waist are just normal jeans, thats how people have worn them in the 1940’s, 1950’s, 1960’s, 1970’s( except for a minute where hip huggers were in, and they would be considered high rise todays standard) 1980’s…then in the 1990’s some Rave Kids decided to wear their pants down low…and now we have finished doing it. So I am sorry, but that style is now going the way of the Dodo. Hey, I used to wear low rise too..but not any longer, or ever again. You will have to get over the fact that the style that was around in your high school years is now old.

    With the mid & low rise jeans, it felt like I was wearing trousers that plumbers have the reputation of showing their rear cleavage with. So, I’m all for high waisted jeans coming back to stay. Like it has been pointed out, they help in slimming the waist line better. I hope that more colors and prints for high waisted jeans become available also. Sure blue and black colored jeans are OK, but I want more variety to pick from.
