About a year and a half ago I tried on my first pair of high-rise jeans, and immediately fell in love. You see I haven’t always been a fan of jeans because I never felt entirely comfortable wearing them. My stylish friend Brooke of Be Social remembers when wearing jeans wasn’t even on my style radar! She said that I didn’t start wearing them until the boyfriend jean became popular. She’s right! The boyfriend jean worked because it was comfortable and flattering. Two things I think are important when jean shopping.
Fast forward 9 years and my new wardrobe must-have is the high-rise jean! I remember two of my friends (who have great sense of personal style) Nicole and Kate talking about how much they loved wearing the higher rise. I had it in my head that it wouldn’t work for me, but once I finally tried a pair on there was no going back! Sometimes we are our own worst enemies!
love the simplicity of a black blazer worn with a black turtleneck and a great fitting pair of jeans. So stylish and easy!
Once you figure out what style works best for you, you won’t dread jean shopping ever again! Sometimes we get stuck in our style box, and need some inspiration. When you know what works best for your body, it’s makes getting dressed everyday a breeze. Jeans are the most versatile item in your closet. I’ve mentioned before in my posts that a great outfit doesn’t need to be complicated. I find that a simple outfit often is the most stylish. I love the idea of wearing a white t-shirt with a great pair of jeans and a heel. Add some statement earrings and out the door you go!
How you wear the high-rise jean will be no different than a regular rise. read below for high-rise advantages…
- Prevents that dreaded muffin top.
- Leg lengthening.
- No more sucking in the tummy!
- Comfortable and stylish. Two words I love together!
