If you had told me two years ago that mid-rise and HIGH-rise jeans were going to be back in style, I would have said, “oh HELL no.” I was a part of the low, lower, lowest rise jeans craze in the early 2000’s . . . remember Britney?? (I’m pretty sure you can’t get any lower. Legally.) BUT. Times change, trends come and go, babies are made, pooches are created . . . so now I say “thank GOD” for the mid-rise comeback. Muffin top, butt-crack, post-partum flabbiness . . . none of these are a problem with the now-ubiquitous higher rise denim. This pair from Express are my new favorites. They are SO comfy, and SO flattering that I bought them in two sizes . . . a short length for flats and the regular length for heels (I’m 5’4″). (They also come in long lengths for you tall gals. Cam, I’m talking about you!)
My biggest dilemma? To tuck or not to tuck. I feel so much more comfortable in a longer tank over the jeans. I think it’s more flattering as well. (I have an “all about the bass” kind of body. Size 0-2 on top and size 6-8 on bottom). BUT, as my sister pointed out, it is much more modern-looking to tuck. Aaaaand my legs DO look much longer when the shirt is tucked. What do you guys think?
I do like the whiskering on the back of the knees . . .
Shoes: CL by Laundry Camden Platform Wedges (now on sale!)
Earrings: BaubleBar Ice Orb Ear Crawlers (actually has four earrings in the package . . . 2 studs and 2 crawlers to mix and match)
Ironically, when I was writing this post I opened up the newest issue of People Style Watch and saw this picture of Jessica Alba:
She is making a good case for the tuck! What do you guys think?
