Well it’s hardly brand new but it’s certainly taken some time to get us creatures of habit out of our skinnies!
Some of us would have been wearing a high rise jean for some time (a skinny high rise). But how on earth have these skinnies fill up our jean rails for the last decade + ? Not a glimmer of hope or a bat of an eyelid for any other style. A much needed change of jean silhouette was needed, and what better way to bring the denim back to life with the best authentic, lived in real jean look that the likes of Levi’s, gave everyone back in the 70’s, a real bum, and a longer leg. Be it cropped or full length you absolutely have to get real again and get your non stretch, hard wearing, straight leg, high waisted jean on!
Whilst sussing out some perfect pics to get you all onboard I came across two articles that I found highly entertaining and thought I would share a snippet of both. I have to say if you read the full article by Man Repeller, she doesn’t instil much confidence as far as the comfort levels go but believe me, mine are oh so comfy, and whilst the eating factor is absolutely true, if I eat a little I find myself with this little kangaroo type pouch between my button and my “you know what”. Regardless, Im in love!

“There is nothing more enticing than the prospect of encasing my loin fruits in a suction cup of denim that fastens right below the ribcage. I pull the 11-inch zipper up slowly, relishing in the compact delight of two halves of this delicious Levi’s sandwich becoming one, circling my torso in a perfectly sized love lock. I look in the mirror. A hologram of Ryan Gosling dips a finger in the blood of my enemies and writes on the glass, “Hey girl, did you swap butts with a young Brooke Shields or are you just wearing your favorite high-waist jeans?”
“Rigid, 100 per cent cotton denim jeans – the original androgynous utility staple – have been overlooked during the decade-long rise of stretchy, spray-on skinnies. How did these clingy, wafer-thin, denim-ish imposters, which are not actually jeans, achieve world domination? They fed our weakest desires for a teenage sort of comfort and provided the illusion of a lean figure, instantly. Somehow it had become acceptable to wear a pair of mock-denim leggings with belt loops and fake rips at the knees outside the house for the sake of that streamlined silhouette. Impatience also played a part.”
Shop the High Waisted Jean
And if you can’t be forced into it all that just yet, I always swear by the high rise Jamie Jean, if you’ve been a client of mine you would of almost certainly have bought a pair on a shop!
