short tops look great with this

also i like them with long tail shirts hanging under tight waistcoats,
or with simple long(er) puff sleeve roll necks

we have a few topics floating around about the high waist look---http://www.thefashionspot.com/forums/showthread.php?t=23881&highlight=death+hipster

i like high waist jeans...esp. vintage high waist, because the denim is so worn out , its paper thin. overall, this is always the problem i have with jeans. i hate the bulk. its uncomfortable. the low -low waist is tired. the highwaist look is refreshing, and actually much more flattering than low-low rise.



i would like to see the levis that mirra posted in person....a bit more modern looking than the hippie type i like, but the white stitching kind of turns me off , a little

for fear of the "long ***"
Could someone explain what "long ***" is, pretty please?

I don't really want high waisted jeans to come back. I hate low-riders and have never worn them, but I do wear the ones that sit at the waist and they are so comfy. I'd die if they disappeared off the shelves in favor of high-rise. I'm pretty thin, but high waisted jeans suffocate my abdomen.

If you wear high waisted jeans they make your *** look like it goes on forever.

but I think new high waisted jeans have pockets lower than in the '80's, so *** doesn't look as long. at least I don't think my *** looks long in mine.. or that's what I'm trying to tell myself..

LOL--
Good point, the pockets were much higher back in the days, so that the bum could be more rounded at the bottom.
I guess a good way to describe the dreaded "long ***" is that it just looks more like a donkey's butt?
I suppose the idea butt is perky and lifted and not suppressed and enlongated.

High waisted jeans is one of those great trends that only look pretty on the runway, because I think it's more acceptable to have edgier/more unpractical/larger than life clothes. But off the runway, when I see people wearing them, I am just reminded of terrible images of Simon Cowell

I want a pair of highwaisted pants but I don't think that they would suit me.. My body is now shaped after lowwaisted jeans so my *lovehandles* wouldn't look good in highwaisted jeans =(

Skyscraper jeans
first the skinny jean and now apparently with low rise jeans dying behold the skyscraper jean. These are the next jeans style apparently that will be big according to insiders within the next few years as low rise jeans die out , but unlike the soccer mom jeans which are high waisted and tapered and which no one will wear, the skyscraper jeans are high waisted and have wide leg or straight wide leg so they look flattering .....think chloe jeans.
