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.








Michael Kors blouse (thrifted... no longer available, but adding this one to my wishlist), Karen Millen jeans (no longer available, but similar pair here), F21 earrings (similar) and bangles (similar), NY&Co chain bangle (similar), Cynthia Rowley bag from TJ Maxx (no longer available, but here's the one I really need), Gianni Bini heels (no longer available, but here are similar that I really wanted), Michael Kors watch (here)

  1. WOow AND far from sinking in any kind of "Show Off Roaring-ittude" the way you match § wear these animal prints (faultlessly) tend to embody a certain (§ so timelessly appealing) "70's Urban Chic" idea Dear !!!

  2. Love this look and couldn't agree more - high waisted flares are infinitely more flattering than the ultra-low's we all used to wear! Btw, that bag is to die for! :)

  4. Seriously, every time I see a photo of you I want EVERYTHING you are wearing! I absolutely love this look on you. As always you look fabulous. I think my favorite part of this look is the extra pop of color of the handbag.

  11. Oh my gosh, you are stunning! I cannot get over this post! Everything looks so great!! As a designer, I am SO, SO happy about the return to wide leg pants. I never stopped designing them, this just means that--with them back in vogue--more people will realize how much more flattering (not mention comfortable) they are than those hateful skinny jeans. Your shoes and bag are awesome. Those jeans are perfect on you! Love it.

  18. You look amazing in these jeans! I have always had a love for the 70's style jean...actually 70's style anything...so I'm equally as happy (although I still love my skinnies too...but not so skinny that I need help getting in/out of them)
