Everything about styling high-waisted jeans

 Recently I bought a pair of high-waisted jeans and since this was my first pair I didn't quite know what to style them with. I've seen them on celebrities and in magazines but when I bought them I struggled with finding any clothes that might go well with them and after I tried on all my wardrobe and getting really frustrated I did a little research. I found many ways to wear them depending on your own style, so if you are wondering how to wear your high-waisted jeans, like me or you are wondering if you should get a pair this article might help you!

The best way to go about styling high-waisted jeans is to consider one’s fashion personality first and take it from there. You should also consider your body type. Maybe you think that pretty much all high-waited jeans are the same but there are many different options and also as you probably already know high-waisted jeans are definitely  not for everybody. They are more difficult to carry off than mid-rise jeans and are not universally flattering. Short-waisted, short, or busty women may find that a high waist sits just underneath their breasts, making them look disproportionate. Women who are carrying a few extra pounds may not want to call attention to their midsections with a high-waisted jeans. Many times, opting for a more moderate style allows women to wear jeans that venture into high-waisted territory without going to extremes; the more cautious the style, the easier it is to pull off successfully. The most important thing is that you try many options and see what works best for your body type before buying a pair.

So here are 6 ways to style your jeans hope you find something usefull!

1. The Prepster

High-waisted jeans automatically look dressier than other jeans and seem more like a trouser than a jean, so they fit in well with a tailored, classic wardrobe. Here are three beautiful ways to pair high-waisted jeans with classic pieces.
  • Add a button-down shirt and high-heeled loafers to wide - leg high - waisted jeans . Finish with a belt for a polished look.
  • Wear high-waisted jeans with a T-shirt and a blazer. Slip into some espadrilles with a very high wedge heel.
  • Layer a cardigan over a knit tank and finish with ballerina flats.

2. Girlicious

A girl can still look feminine and romantic in a pair of high-waisted jeans. Try these three ideas when it is important to exude that girly vibe.
  • The last option above for "Tailored and Classic" works here as well. Layer a soft cardigan in a pretty color over a tank top and put on cute flats. Make the look more girly by going with a soft pastel, such as pink or lilac, for the cardigan or tank.
  • Start with a great pair of high heels. Add high-waisted jeans. Top off with a loose blouse and a cloche or floppy hat.
  • Wear high wedges with high-waisted jeans and finish with a pretty T-shirt embellished with ruffles or ribbons.

3. Androgynous

Nothing looks better with an androgynous look than high-waisted jeans, even though, paradoxically, they also look very feminine. Try these three outfits for a sexy mannish style.
  • Wear high-waisted jeans with a men’s shirt and suspenders. Finish with sexy heels to avoid looking too masculine.
  • Put on high-waisted jeans with a shirt, tie, and jacket. Be careful to make each element slightly feminine; the idea is not to dress up as a man but to pull off a look that is inspired by men’s clothing.
  • Again, put on a man’s shirt and tuck it in, but leave it unbuttoned to the waist and pop a white ribbed tank undershirt underneath. Roll up the sleeves to the elbows and add a belt. This has a terrific early-20th-century look to it.

4. Happy Hippie

Some of the jeans of the late ‘60s and early ‘70s did feature higher rises, so a high - waisted flare jean is right in keeping with the days of Flower Power. Here are three bohemian looks to get you started.
  • Mix a light wash high - waisted flare jean with a peasant-style blouse and an earthy sandal.
  • Wear high-waisted jeans with a knit turtleneck top and wooden-soled clogs.
  • Combine a T-shirt, vest, and high-waisted jeans with platform heels.

5. Fashionista

A sleek and chic look can be achieved by mixing high-waisted jeans with sexy pieces.
  • Put on a dark wash high - waisted skinny jean and high-heeled sandals. On top, add a thin, form-fitting sweater or knit top.
  • Start with high-waisted jeans and an avant-garde blouse featuring exaggerated puffed sleeves, a huge collar, or another notice-me feature. Finish with striking, to-the-minute heels.
  • Layer a trendy jacket over high-waisted jeans; carry an eye-catching bag and, of course, wear heels.

6. Tough Girl

High-waisted jeans may seem too fashion-forward for a rocker or biker chick, but with the right styling, these jeans can work for anyone.
  • First, choose great well-worn (or worn-looking) high - waisted boyfriend jeans . Next, put on a plain tee. Finally, throw on a black leather motorcycle jacket and black ankle boots.
  • Go ‘80s by pairing high-waisted jeans with an army jacket and try Doc Martens on the feet.
  • Look tough but sporty by wearing a slashed-up, cropped sweatshirt with high-waisted jeans and Chuck Taylors.
