Love Them or Loathe Them: High-Waisted Jeans

Love Them or Loathe Them: High-Waisted Jeans (Source: Gf/Bauergriffin.Com)

Once upon a time, say, seven or eight years ago, super high-waisted jeans had a name and it wasn't a pretty one... (drum roll) Mom jeans. Yikes!

Remember that less-than flattering term? Back in those olden days, whether one's signature style was glam, boho, classic, or downtown, no self-respecting style maven would be caught dead in jeans that rose even a few millimeters above the hipbone. Never!

Well, ladies, it's safe to say that times have changed, and we all love our tight high-waisted jeans, whether tight and stretchy, or bell-bottom, '70s style. When worn right, high waisted jeans definitely flatter the figure, if only for their delicate camouflage of one's lower belly, if one is inclined to prefer to not flaunt that particular part of one's anatomy, especially considering the crop top trend. Pairing a crop with high-waisted jeans is a great way to show only a suggestive sliver of skin, keepin' it sexy and classy at the same time. Score. But what do you think of high-waisted blue jeans? Miss Peaches Geldof rocked a pair during her DJ set in Manchester last night. Let us know, in our poll, below.
