Style Advice of the Week

Along with new goals and a fresh start, the New Year also brings new trends. Many of our favorite new trends have actually been reinvented from the past. High-waisted jeans have been brought back a number of times since the ‘70s and this year, I see high-waisted skinny jeans reappearing in full force. They can be worn to class for a more casual look or dressed up for a night out, making them extremely versatile.

This Fashionista effortlessly styled her high-waisted skinny jeans from GUESS with an off the shoulder, long sleeve crop top and black booties. Her colorful scarf and bright jewelry added a fun yet elegant touch to the ensemble. Along with these accessories, her black skinny belt gave the outfit a polished look.

High-waisted skinny jeans are a practical must-have this spring semester since they can be paired with a multitude of tops and shoes. This is key for those of us living in the Northeast, considering how unpredictable the weather can be. For the colder days during spring semester, try high-waisted skinny jeans and a pair of booties with a cropped sweater from Urban Outfitters. When the weather gets warmer, you can rock them with a simple crop top and sneakers.

Not only are high-waisted jeans flattering, but they are also a great investment because they can be styled so many different ways. With so much going on during the semester, it’s important to have those key pieces that are practical yet trendy. Check out Forever 21, Topshop and Nordstrom for some cute and affordable high-waisted skinny jeans!
