    As the title says, I am considering trying a pair of high waisted jeans :yep: It's mostly just an idle musing, I am unsure if they will be at all flattering.

    If anyone wears them, whereabouts do you buy them, and what do you wear with them?
    I don't mean jeans that simply aren't really low, more of a deliberately high waist.

    I had a nice pair from primark but they fell apart pretty quick and I can't seem to find another pair. I like them in dark denim... I still wear a lot of high waisted shorts, usually with big check shirts or large tshirts to balance out the tightness. If you get the right high waisted-ness they're flattering, holds in any love handles

    they have some in topshop, and i think you wear it with a tucked in shirt/top... they've never really appealed to me, i prefer high waisted skirts, and yeah im not sure if they are that flattering, coz im guessing they show your whole stomach off.

    topshop love this style...I think if they squeeze and flatter you sounds nice. I am too large for this but if you are a smaller size than a 14 you should be ok

    Thanks for all the quick replies
    I haven't seen them in Topshop, but it has been a while since I have really looked in their jeans section. I have a pair of very dark denim high waisted shorts from last summer from there which I love.
    I have a few high waisted skirts, which I agree are flattering, I just wasn't sure about jeans. I find it can be very difficult to get even a standard pair to fit in the first place.

    They can be a little uncomfortable to sit in and if you have large breasts and you tucked you top in it looks like your top begins just under them which looks really bad.

    I hate them, can't really envisage them looking too good on a girl unless she was hiding a muffin top

    They look great if you have a tiny waste, as they accentuate it while still looking casual. I have a pair from topshop, and I know urban outfitters had some a few weeks back.

    Hey sorry to bring up an old thread, but did you get yourself some high waisted jeans? If so, where from? Because I LOVE high waisted shorts and skirts, but I haven't been able to find myself a good pair. I even searched in the massive Topshop in London but the only pair they did have weren't great.

    Thank youuu, but I already have several pairs of the shorts. I want the full-length jeans, and since I rarely wear jeans anyway, I'm very fussy. Haha.
