Musings on the High Waisted


I do not have any brilliant new insight into the emerging trend of high waisted jeans. I feel compelled to put in my two cents (if that).

Now I am a proponent of the skinny jean…low waist and stove pipe legs is how I prefer my denim. Despite many dissenting opinions, I believe that this shape is universally flattering, as long as you find the right cut…the skinny jean does just that…it skinnys.

Therefore, a wide leg must be quite exquisite to appeal to my taste. Now I can easily fall for a wide leg low waist that resembles a boyfriend’s jean as they can be flattering on us regular girls although not as put together as a tighter style. Decent for a walk in the park on a lazy Saturday or and afternoon movie on a rainy Saturday. But the high waist wide leg is an entirely different species. It takes a tall skinny girl to really pull these off without looking like a. you are wearing a diaper or b. you should go back to Studio 54.

So of my three examples, I would have to say that Miss Mischa pulls off this look the neatest but I would have paired it with a crisp white puff sleeve button down to avoid the used 70s era look of the rock and roll t-shirt.

The 1st girl only. The middle horrendous and the 3rd not very flattering.
