When I selected these jeans at the Lucky FABB conference from JBrand I was excited but nervous. I'm used to the low riding jeans where they sit comfortably on your hips. These Bianca jeans (HERE) sit at your natural waist line. Yes this is the style of jeans we use to wear years ago before the hip huggers and low riders became big. But it was a little weird to wear jeans that sat this high again. I was a little afraid I would end being a fashion NO and looking like Jessica Simpson did when she wore high waisted jeans (HERE). I wanted to hide my waist/hips and felt like these jeans drew attention to them. So I compromised by tucking my tank in and wearing an open cardigan on top. Hidden but still showing a little. How do you feel about high waisted jeans? Will you try the trend?

  1. Yay - I'm wearing mine today too...we're twins! :) I wasn't sure about them at first either, because I am pear-shaped, but I actually think they are more flattering & make your legs look longer than the lower-rise versions. How is it that you look all flowy & pretty in the wind and I am like a hot mess when we have a windy photo shoot?!? No fair! :)

    1. My mom and sister said the same thing- that they make your legs look longer than other jeans. I am really starting to love these jeans. As for looking all flowy & pretty in the wind- thank you and luck I guess. Trust me there are a lot of photos where I don't :)

  4. I love my BDG brand high waisted jeans. I feel like I don't have to pull them up all the time or worry about exposure if I bend over. I think if they're worn well, they look great. Yours looks so lovely. I also like the hem on the jeans. The overall balance looks really chic and well put together. :)
