Have you guys jumped on the high-rise denim train yet? I’ve been waffling. My most-worn jeans are still AG’s legging jean (they’re just so hard to beat in the comfort department, they look amazing cropped, and fit nicely under OTK boots)…..but I have been noticing that the low, low rise isn’t quite as leggy as a well-fitting pair of high-rise denim.
And I love leggy.
The issue, however, with high-rise denim is comfort. I don’t love being squeezed around my middle, and since that’s where I tend to carry my, um, softness, I need an uber-comfortable pair. (One that also fits my butt yet doesn’t over-squeeze my stomach.)
I should’ve known that Rag and Bone – my longtime favs – would come to the rescue (here’s a link to the exact pair I’m wearing). Admittedly, they were pretty slow to the high-rise game, but totally worth the wait. I also love that, true-to-form, the wash is a faded black wash, not a uniform one.
These are quickly becoming my go-tos, especially with stripes (tucked-in to show off that high-rise).
sweater: 100% cashmere Jorgie Sweater by Velvet – xs for reference – I love this sweater. For a lower-cost option with a similar vibe, this bright striped little LOFT number would be super cute half-tucked into high-rise denim.
jeans: Rag and Bone High-Rise Ankle Skinny Jeans (size 25 for reference)
Rag and Bone High-Rise Denim Extravaganza
And by “extravaganza” I mean alllll of the pairs of Rag and Bone’s magic high-rise that I was able to find on the internet.
