This appreciation post is long overdue…

Today’s post is dedicated to my love of high-waisted jeans/skirts/shorts/everything.

Here’s why.

I was thinking back to the high-school days (clearly, this was my first mistake๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ) and how I used to wear those “1-inch zipper” low-rise/skin tight jeans. Let’s formally blame Paris Hilton for this.

There is nothing quite as horrendous as having your love handles/belly be uncomfortably poking out over the top of your skin tight low-rise jeans. How are you supposed to eat? Breather? Live?

I CAN’T.ย ๐Ÿ˜ซ

Since high-waisted jeans came back into style, I’ve pretty much rid my life of anything low-rise. Like, goodbye forever!ย ๐Ÿ™…โ€โ™€๏ธ New number who dis.

Back to my point…

High-waisted jeans.ย ๐Ÿ‘–

It’s been a minute since I’ve publicly acknowledged how significantly my life has been improved by their existence. It’s atย least 5% better.

At least.

You can eat in them. They conveniently tuck away all of your unwanted….. layers(?) shall we say? Everything just looks right. And most importantly, the comfort is REAL.

In honour of us no longer stuffing ourselves into 1-inch zipper jeans, here are some high-waisted options that I’m really vibing right now.

First off, Khloe Kardashian knows what’s up when it comes to this trend. Good American has so many great options, and I love how you can view the same pant on different sized models on the website. Honestly how is every other company not doing this? It’s genius.

Also really into Parker Smith these days, they have both high-rise and ULTRA high-rise options. Now, I don’t totally love the price point on Citizens but the brand fits me like a glove and I use their jeans for 5 years plus, always. And finally, if you want a pair of high-waisted jeans/pants a classic is Levis. Not the most stretchy or comfy but ohhhh so on trend rn.

So…yeah! Those are my current fave brands for high-waisted pants. Do you have any faves I need to know about? If so, please leave a comment and let me know what brands you like best!

That’s all for today! Hope your Friday is going well, and you have lots of fun planned for the weekend ahead.

Love you!





  1. Omg! Iโ€™ve been thinking this for so long too! The truly are the best at hiding the layers ๐Ÿ˜‚. Haha. Paris Hilton ruined us with the low rise! ๐Ÿ˜‚ my favourite brand is Leviโ€™s for sure. Love this post ๐Ÿ˜˜

  2. High-waister pants and shorts are definitely my go-to. They look and feel the most comfortable. Good American is my favorite brand too! They make them available for girls of all sizes and I love the models because they’re not all sticks so girls who aren’t know that these can look good on their body too!

  3. I could NOT agree more! I could go on forever of the benefits of high wasted pants haha. I’ve never shopped at Good American before, but I’m always looking for a good pair of pants!

  4. Soooo glad the era of low rise jeans is over! Am totally here for these high-rise jeans especially with the colder months approaching and wearing large coats, I find this particular waist line really helps define you figure even with multiple layers!

  5. It’s great to see high waisted jeans make a serious comeback, they’re so fashionable! They can work so well with almost any outfit.
