Low-rise jeans may have had their moment in the limelight, but thankfully, the spotlight on this tween-only trend looks to be diminishing… and let’s face it: no one wants to see rear cleavage when you’re retrieving any dropped belongings – regardless if what you’d like to think. Show off the goods in the latest denim: it’s high-waisted! That’s right, the ’90s look a la Calvin Klein and Levi’s is back with a vengeance, embraced by both Hollywood and the fashion world alike. Actress Gemma Arterton was spotted running errands in a pair of high-waisted boyfriend’s, while blogger Karla Deras of Karla’s Closet is having a love affair with her vintage Levi’s 501’s.
If you’re wondering how to embrace this trend, take baby steps. Urban Outfitters is chock-full of high-waisted denim options that won’t break the bank, like Levi’s 632 High Rise Skinny Jeans at $58. If you’re looking a few decades behind the ’90s, Who What Wear has an entire article on where to buy ’70s-style flares – perfect to match with sky-high disco-era platforms! Take a cue from Karla, too – you can dress these babies up or down, pairing with heels and a fun, girly button-down top or going casual with flats and a plain white tee.
So face it, ladies: even if you’re still loving your low-waisted skinnies, consider taking a break for a while. Absence makes the heart grow fonder, and who knows – maybe you’ll end up falling in love with a pair of belly-button hugging denim this season!
