I've never been that much of jean girl, and that's saying a lot from a former AE "Denim Expert." But this year's revised style picks have definitely increased my love for this All-American staple. When it comes to denim, I've never been that crazy about the feel or the fit. I've paid a hefty price tag for some jeans to only have them start the awful sag after 3 or 4 wears. I usually go for the jegging style, but these don't always give the same look as really denim. Being that my waist is significantly smaller than my bum, I've always suffered from the infamous "GAP." Until now...
HIGH RISE DENIM
FINALLY! I found a pair of jeans that are perfect for my shape and you won't believe where I found them... H&M
The H&M Skinny High Rise jeans feel as good as some of my premium denim but without the eventual loose fit, and priced at an unbelievable $10, I can have this great style in a multitude of colors without breaking the bank.
WHY I LOVE THE FIT
The high waisted style is perfect for my hourglass shape. (I stay away from low rise as I refuse to have to continue to pull them up and I rather not have the infamous muffin top). A higher waistline doesn't just cover up, but helps to cinch and heighten you with longer legs and a more defined waist. Being that I'm just under 5'4, I love the way this style gives me height. Pairing high-waisted denim with a croptop, shawl and heels helps to give this wardrobe staples life.
What's your perfect fit?
