A Complete Guide to Wearing High-Waisted Jeans For Women

We could wax poetic about the power high-waisted jeans wield when it comes to elongating your legs and cinching your waist, but you’ve heard it before—that’s why you likely already own multiple pairs.
Perhaps you haven’t pulled out, dusted off, and worn them for a while now—but thanks to the arrival of mom jeans 2.0, the high-rise style is having somewhat of a revival. In addition to the high-waisted, tapered, distressed looks from the ’90s, street-style stars are bringing back ’70s full-flared jeans with high waistlines and super-skinny silhouettes in a bunch of different denim washes.

The question remains, though, what do you wear with these high and mighty jeans to look a little more like a modern woman living in 2015—and a little less like a tired throwback to 1975? We’ve answered that question in the gallery ahead, spotlighting 23 fresh ways to wear your high-waisted jeans right now.

Blue denim is inherently casual, so to make it feel a little more dressy and grown-up, tuck in a silky, long-sleeve blouse and then add tonal pumps




A puffy shirt is so much more interesting than a classic button-down



Channel ’70s vibes by picking a pussy-bow blouse with wide-leg jeans


A cropped bomber will always look cool with light-wash mom jeans


Tuck a simple black tank top into high-waisted flares, and make the look feel modern with fresh accessories.

Team a crop top with acid-wash jeans.


Lingerie-as-daywear is having a moment right now, and the easiest way to try the trend (while tempering the sex-bomb vibes) is by wearing casual high-waist jeans, your lace crop top, and a casual jacket layered over the top. Ankle boots or sneakers are safer than heels if you want to wear this as daywear.


Show a peek of skin with a cleverly tied crop top.


Tailor your high-waisted flares to the perfect length, and then you can get away with styling alongside flat sneakers. Update the look with a slouchy sweater and a bandana worn as a neck scarf.


Wearing super-high jeans and a blazer instantly gives you license to show a crop top underneath without looking overly dressed up.

Tuck skinny jeans into statement ankle boots, and play with proportions by adding a statement furry jacket.


When in doubt, a striped cotton shirt, high-waisted jeans, and ankle-strap pumps will always feel modern.


Try a pair with fringed cuffs—or DIY.


Mix the masculine and feminine by pairing brogues or loafers with cropped jeans and a soft, lace shirt.


Tie your T-shirt to show off the high-rise cut.


Flatforms, platforms, or creepers will lengthen your legs and make ultra-high silhouettes more flattering.


Crop the legs of your jeans and leave a little gap between your cuff and boots.


A lesson in layers: Rather than just tucking in a turtleneck this winter, add a silk, lace, or fringe cami over the top


Roll your cuffs, tuck in a tee, and tie your blazer around your waist.

Add a white T-shirt and a printed, cropped jacket.


Roll the cuffs of your jeans high to show off killer shoes.
