As a true college Fashionista, there are a couple of things that you should always keep high at all times: your GPA, your standards and occasionally your jeans. Seen on some of Hollywood’s most beautiful stars, high-waisted jeans have stood the test of time as the ultimate closet must have. Passed down in history by Marilyn Monroe to Kourtney Kardashian, there’s just something about these waist clinching garments that can make any Fashionista look fun and flirty on any occasion. Add this timeless piece to your wardrobe to capture the irresistible girl next door look. I guarantee you’ll have your hot neighbors itching to get to know you.
This Fashionista’s look can make any soul nostalgic for Old Hollywood trends with her pleated skinny jeans. Paying homage to famous actresses like Marilyn Monroe and Lana Turner; the petite Fashionista pairs her slightly fitted jeans with a fitted bandeau top and a skinny leather belt to add a little more volume to her hips. She really brings this ‘60s inspired look even more to life by rocking a matching leather interwoven knapsack and Hepburn tressed bangs. Think that you are working with a little too much curves for this fitting ensemble, think again. Go for a ‘70s bohemian look by rocking high-waisted bell bottoms with a killer cropped jacket and oversized hat. Regardless of how you wear them, these jeans will add length to your legs while giving the illusion of a subtracted waist.
How To: Still convinced that high-waist jeans are just a fancy name for mom jeans? Start off by wearing a pair of high-rise jeans that stops a little above the waist and pair it with a crop top that leaves out a tiny bit of midriff. This way the jeans will not seem too high.
