In 2018, I experienced lots of big life changes, one of the biggest changes has been going from working in an office every day to working from home. I’ve since moved all of my cute pencil skirts and button-down shirts to the back of the closet and now have a very, very casual work wardrobe. If I wanted to walk around all day in pajamas, I could, but I really don’t enjoy looking like a hot mess all day every day. In an effort to not look like a slob every day, I always make sure that I slip into a good pair of jeans while I am working from home.
A few years ago I discovered high waisted jeans and I have not looked back. High waisted jeans are my JAM! Seriously, what’s not to love? They suck you in where you need it and create the illusion of longer legs. I have a very long torso and short legs so high waisted jeans are everything I need.
Not only do I find high waisted jeans flattering but they stay in place and I never have to worry about bending over. Feeling appropriate in low rise jeans can be quite the obstacle.

The first pair of high waisted jeans that I purchased were the Levi’s 721, a great introductory pair. They are comfortable, affordable and just the right amount of stretch.
I am not much of a designer girl so, for the most part, all of my listed jeans are nondesigner. Recently, I rediscovered Abercrombie jeans and they are EVERYTHING. I went to high school in the mid-2000’s so shopping at Abercrombie and Fitch was a must! In the years following high school I parted ways with Abercrombie, it wasn’t until recently that I purchased a pair of their high rise jeans and fell madly in love with their denim.
I seriously live in high rise skinny jeans, I am a big fan of a good dark wash but really love a moderately distressed jean. With all of this high rise jean wearing I’ve become quite the connoisseur, so today I am sharing the best high waisted skinny jeans.

I’ve read that high rise jeans will no longer be the popular style in the next few years but I promise my closet will be filled with high waisted jeans forever.
