Save Steal Splurge: High-Waisted Jeans
Like the tide, denim’s rises come up and slip away. One decade, it’s about getting as low as possible. Right now, it’s all about the high waist. Blame it on the ’70s undercurrent that we and every else just can’t get enough of. But instead of pairing a high rise with an out-to-there flare, we’re pairing the leg-lengthening cut with skinny silhouettes and new, modern washes. And for those who can’t let go of those bellbottoms, we’ve got a kicky pick that modernizes the flare with a little crop and a super-high waist. Paired with a crop shirt, these jeans look so 2016, but feel free to wear them with your longest, coziest sweaters, your go-to moto and just about everything else.
