How to wear high waisted jeans
Today, let’s talk about a great classic piece. A staple that one would possibly never get bored of. It’s accessible in terms of style and price tag. That is high waisted denim.
We’ve been eyeing their comeback for a while now, blue, dark, raw, you name it. And the truth is that we got caught up into a new way of styling them. Even though we always had a thing for Farah Fawcett iconic way of wearing them in the 1970’s, and Alexa Chung’s elongated legs in high waisted denim … lately we are becoming super inspired by Barbara Martelo’s quintessential take on them.
Whether wearing a Saint Laurent high waisted skinny pair with her unique sartorial elegance during last Fashion Week or defying the vintage Levi’s mum’s cut with a bodycon black top, we just can’t resist the high waisted number. We simply love too much the idea of creating a chic, feminine silhouette that works for winter, and maintains an effortless sexy je ne sais quoi.
As per WSJ last week’s article, which is proving that Levi’s re-introduction of the 501 styles as seen on Camille Rowe clearly has a point, we could take the debate further and think that the high waisted game is now on. Are you team “skinny fit” or “loose vintage cut”?
