4 reasons I love high rise jeans

About a year and a half ago I tried on my first pair of high-rise jeans, and immediately fell in love.

Wouldn’t you rather have 7 amazing items hanging in your closet than 20 unremarkable items that you don’t feel fabulous wearing? Pick out the items in your closet that you absolutely love and get rid of the rest. Often our closets are full of clothing but be honest with yourself, how much do you actually wear? I have learned over the years how to edit and re-edit my closet. I may not have a closet full of clothing but what I do have is clothing I love and feel great wearing. Isn’t that what we all want? Believe me, you don’t need a closet full of expensive designer clothing to take your wardrobe up to the next level. I have also learned when to splurge and when not to. What we all need to start with are the basics which will become the foundation of your wardrobe. The basics will go with everything in your closet, never go out of style, and your look is always on point. Don’t think that basic has to be boring either. Remember every item in your closet even the classic white t-shirt should make you feel amazing in. Stick with me, I will show you how…

7 Days of Style Basic #1: Jeans

Every woman should have at least one pair of jeans hanging in their closet. Jeans are the most versatile and practical item you will own. Jeans can dress up or dress down an outfit. Two years ago I tried a pair of high waist Rag & Bone jeans and loved them instantly. I’m a huge fan of the high waist jeans, but you have to find the right style and fit for your body.

Below is an example of my fall wardrobe staples. 

  1. Rag & Bone high waist jean
  2. Black turtleneck
  3. Tna puffer coat
  4. Stuart Weitzman ankle boots
  5. Silk scarf
