How to Wear High Waisted Jeans: 3 Tips

High waisted jeans are flattering on anyone, thanks to the high rise that buttons at or just below the belly button, which is often the smallest part of your natural waist. This also creates an illusion of longer legs which is a win-win all around! Curious how to style them for fall? We’ve got you covered. Find our favorite high waisted jean outfit ideas here.

1. The Front Tuck

High waisted jeans are designed to show off your waist, so don’t cover it up under a bulky sweater! The front tuck lends a little fashion ‘edge’ and works for almost every sweater or top (unless they are very oversized). Plus, it shows off your belt! And the beauty of this look is that it’s meant to be casual, so don’t overthink, just tuck and go!

2. The Full Tuck

Same rules apply here—billowy blouses will overtake a high rise silhouette, so instead tuck it in. We love the balanced proportions—a little volume up top and streamlined through the waist and leg. Add a belt to complete the look.

3. Go Monochrome

For a seriously chic look, black high waisted denim and a fitted black top will always deliver major style points. It’s also the ideal foundation for a statement jacket—this sweater coat is eye-catching (and cozy!) while a blazer would be a sophisticated and trending topper, too.
