When worn with a tucked-in shirt, high rise jeans give you more of a waist without really trying that hard—no exercise routine or girdle necessary. They’ve been favorites of grown up Spice Girls (Victoria Beckham) and many a Charlie's Angel (just look how good Jaclyn Smith looks). Most recently, they received a vote of confidence from Candice Swanepoel, who says: “All of my jeans are high-waisted because I think they make me look like Farrah Fawcett.” So, yeah, now all of ours are, too.
Acne Studios Pin Storm Jeans: Acne Studios rules at a lot of things, jeans included. These are straightforward with strategic fading that's just noticeable enough without screaming 2003.
Citizens Of Humanity Rocket Highrise Jeans: Here's a snug, body-hugging fit made of perfect somewhat stretchy material. Ideal for wearing with an ankle boot.
Rag & Bone High Rise Skinny Jeans: Simple, well cut, and flattering on most—you'll want to wear these every day.
MiH The Marrakesh Jean: ...Unless you try these on. So, if you love skinny jeans, just don't, seriously, because they'll make you never want to wear something that's not flared again.
