Love a good high-waisted jean
If ever there were a trend that I was ELATED to see come back around - this is it, folks. A few years ago, when jeans weren't only 'skinny' (I still wear straight/skinny jeans at times) - but you literally had zero chance of bending over without fear of a classless 'attack of the plumber' on the poor, defenseless soul behind you.... I thought my life was over. (Yes, I was - and am still - that dramatic). I just knew that real designers and women with real figures and curves would lash out in retaliation, bringing back these wider-leg, high-waist jeans once more for all of us to feel our best once again.
So happy that everyone came to their senses and these jeans are back. Dear fashion industry: let's PLEASE not do the whole 'super-skinny-no-really-they-are-THE-skinniest-extra-ultra-low-actually-so-low-that-you-need-a-Brazilian-wax-to-wear-these-jeans' again, ok? Can we all agree that even with a leopard print top and 5 inch platform heels, this looks much more classy? Thanks.
