Those of us who have previously worn high-waisted jeans are overjoyed that they are back in stock! High waisted jeans, pants, trousers, and skirts are a very flattering shape that enhances the appearance of any woman's physique. They're also more versatile than low-cut jeans, which are best suited to slim ladies because anyone with a few extra pounds on their stomach must wear a long top with low-waists. However, you'll discover that a high-waist allows you to wear a variety of cropped, tucked-in, and longer tops.

Tips on Styling High-waisted Jeans: 

I adore how a pristine white or striped top tucked into your navy high-waisted trousers can make you look professional and sophisticated one day. Alternatively, you can wear a flowing blouse tucked in and then pulled out just enough to achieve the renowned blouson look from the 1980s. High-waisted pants go well with traditional Breton striped fisherman's blouses and graphic tees. Plus, this year, we'll be wearing lovely tie-dye tops with a contemporary twist, featuring diverse hues and dye-styles from the 1960s and 1970s.

So, if you're ready for a universally flattering jeans body-cut this year, as well as a wide range of leg widths, here are some pointers on how to wear high-waisted jeans:

  1. Although oversized clothing is back in style this year, high-waisted jeans should always be purchased in your normal size.
  2. When wearing high-waisted jeans, tuck your top in to show off the fashionable waist.
  3. Pair high-waisted jeans with a long blazer to add interest.
  4. Purchase fashionable belts to add a touch of class to your ensembles.
  5. Pair slim high-waisted jeans with ankle-length bootees or fashionable shoes.
  6. With wide-leg high-waisted jeans, wear wedges or platform shoes/platform trainers.
  7. Stiletto heels should be avoided when wearing wide-leg jeans since they tend to get trapped in the inside hem and cause you to tumble forward. This is especially true when descending stairwells.
  8. Last but not the least, in order to acheive all the 7 goals we have listed you have to take care of your high-waisted jeans and how to wash them right. So, here is the right way to wash your jeans.

What body types look best in high-waisted jeans?

The vast majority of them! High-waisted jeans are always in style because they are comfortable and don't require constant pulling up. They slim your tummy and give you a more balanced body shape that emphasises your waist. You may wear high-waisted jeans with confidence whether you are tall, short, curvaceous, athletic, hourglass, pear-shaped, or apple-shaped.

Do you think high-waisted jeans make you look slimmer?

Yes, they can help you look thinner because the emphasis is on your waist rather than your hips. If you have a curvaceous physique, high-waist jeans will make you look slimmer. The high-waist style also gives the illusion of a longer lower body and legs, which is quite attractive.

What colours should I pair with high-waisted jeans?

Rich purple, burgundy, sapphire-blue, all shades of brown, khaki, sand and light-brown, tan and mustard yellow, magnificent new forest-green and deep pink, as well as white and cream, are the winter colours this year. Summer hues include lavender, gentle moss-green, soft yellow, powder-puff pink, baby-blue, and dove-grays, as well as all of the lighter brown tints described above.

Here are some other ways you can style your high waisted jeans:

Tops, shirts, and blouses with high-waisted pants

With a striped shirt in white and grey, or beige and dark-blue high-waisted, flared jeans, you can easily put together an easy everyday ensemble. Wear with a rectangular purse in a neutral hue, tan, or a bright colour like yellow or red, and wedge or platform high shoes. High-waisted flares, bootcuts, straight-leg, baggy, and wide-leg high-waisted jeans look great with grey or beige tees and graphic tees.

Levi's Ribcage Jeans with Extra-High Ribcage

If you prefer high-waisted jeans, you'll be pleased to learn that the next hot trend will be extra-high waists! And the best jeans to buy for this trend are Levi’s Ribcage jeans. They have the highest waist of all, measuring 12 inches, and are modelled on the classic Levi's 501s from the 1990s.

High-waisted Mom Jeans

These are another another pair of jeans that may be worn in any season. They're somewhat cropped, which is great for those of us who are short because we don't have to deal with a lot of excess length. You can also get a contemporary ankle-length jean, which looks informal and hip on most ladies. The high-waist should be worn with a tucked-in top, but this isn't required; in the winter, you can use casual long flannel shirts and in the summer, short cropped tops.

Boyfriend Jeans with a High Waist and a Slouchy Fit

From time to time, we all need a pair of slouchy boyfriend jeans to unwind in. They're a classic style with a relaxed fit similar to men's jeans, but with some extra tailoring for a more feminine shape. There are numerous variations on this jean's shape, ranging from baggy to thinner fits, ensuring that a boyfriend jeans cut is available for every body type.

Boot-cut Jeans with a High Waist and a Straight Leg

Because they are adaptable and easy to wear with anything, straight leg jeans and boot-cuts are likely to be one of the most popular fashionable jeans designs this year. As a result, they appeal to a broader range of ladies of all sizes and ages, and they can be tailored to fit most fashion styles. So you may mix and match straight and boot-cuts with your existing wardrobe or invest in a few new pieces to refresh your look. Straight-leg jeans with a high waist and a narrow fit on the legs look excellent with a coatigan or is it cardi-coat (LOL!) in the winter/spring and give an up-to-date, casual style.

Jeans with a high waist and bell-bottoms

Bell-bottoms are a popular hippy type of jeans from the late 1960s and 1970s that look fantastic on taller women, but they don't look as good on us shorter ladies. To balance off the wide hem, they should be paired with platform shoes or boots, or high wedge sandals. For a modern take on a popular retro-style, pair with a Bardot off-the-shoulder blouse, a modern graphic tee, a frilly white blouse, or a trendy tie-dye top.

White High-waisted Jeans

White denim can be worn at any time of year. To achieve an attractive style, simply match your accessories to the season. White jeans also look wonderful with a deep purple, forest-green, or sapphire-blue sweater, as well as a black blazer or leather jacket and black boots in the winter. White jeans in today's market range from raggedy cut-offs that extend just below the knees to faded jeans and smart-looking sailor-style jeans.

Jackets, Coats, and High-waisted Jeans

Wear your white jeans with a brown midi wool coat, a rectangular, chain-strapped shoulder bag, a pastel-colored, patterned scarf, a pale-blue chambray shirt, and matching brown, tan, or beige bootees or shoes when it's cold outside. Trench coats are particularly fashionable this year, and you can pair one with white or black high-waisted jeans in olive green, khaki, or brown. And the coatigan is a heavy-knit cardigan that is long, snug, and toasty, giving your ensembles an entirely new and fashionable mood!

There's a whole new range of coats to wear in spring weather, including attractive, floral-printed denim jackets that can be worn over a cropped top and paired with pastel-colored sneakers and a bag. Faux-leather jackets are also really affordable right now. And the ones I've seen at high-street stores appear to be genuine leather. This year, they come in a variety of colours, including pink and royal blue, as well as the tried-and-true black leather jackets. Try a new collarless, zip-up faux-leather jacket instead of a biker style and pair it with a long or short-sleeved top with the collar visible around the neckline. Or a basic scarf draped around the neck with a graphic tee or tie-dye top.
