I think it’s safe to say that my jean obsession heightened (pun intended) ever since I bought my own pair of high-waisted jeans. There’s just something about how these jeans hug the waist that I find so comforting.
What I like most about high-waisted jeans is that they flatter all body types. Since they hug the narrowest part of your torso, they emphasize your curves. This is especially great for women who have boyish figures since the jean illustrates an hourglass figure. The jeans also do wonders for the bosom, not to mention they elongate your legs and make you look taller. Talk about magic!
This Fashionista went for the ultimate retro look by using a pair of vintage high-waisted jeans which could be easily be found at thrift stores. If thrifting isn’t your cup of tea, American Apparel offers medium and dark vintage high-waisted jeans too. This Fashionista uses a belly shirt that further extenuates her waist. She covers up with a brightly colored blazer that is totally reminiscent of the ‘80s. The blazer is especially good to wear during class when you feel like you’re showing too much skin. She continues the retro flair with large statement earrings and cheetah print loafers that tie up her look very well.
I’m certainly looking forward to seeing more Fashionista’s spot this high-waisted jean trend these upcoming weeks. It’s exciting to see the modern twist on ’80s trends. I’ll tell you one thing, I’m sure glad that poodle hair and huge shoulder pads weren’t part of the ‘80s comeback!
