High Waisted Jeans #1
I always hear ( in nyc and london) how people want high waisted denim. I just can't figure out,what a flattering pair would be. I feel in general, people are stuck on the low-waisted. I think that if high waisted denim is executed right, it could potentially be cool. I think it would take alot of coaxing to get people to try on. Does anyone have any thoughts on high waisted? I feel it should go all out or not at all. Otherwise, it will look like your gran's.
Does anyone have pictures to post of hot denim high waisted. Also, what leg opening would be good?

I'm not so sure as to how I feel about this trend... but with regard to the leg opening, I'd say that a straight/skinny leg would be best.

I agree Kimkhuu
I truly think people will think of the new high waist, and swallow it the way they do with the skinny jean. I know that even earlier this year, people were so against the skinny, but it did finally take over. The low waist is just so dull and tired.
I think that the IOC was pretty bad looking, it could be done even better than that I feel.
I hope to see some pictures of anything cool.

The one Chloe made a few seasons ago and sold like hotcakes was great because the double braided waistbands added interest and texture between the waist and hips, shortening it, which I think is a key element. If the area is completely smooth it could make you look long waisted, your stomach look bulgy, and your hips look low, flat and droopy...not pretty!

I thought that high waisted look would catch on much earlier but the skinny-leg stole the spotlight...

And yes, straight or wide leg are good.

I know what you mean. I felt that was a good way to do it. I have always been afraid to try on, even the vintage type...for fear of the "long *** " LOL..It definitely needs something to break it up.

Oh i loooooove the highwaist, I've always rocked it, and will never do a low waist. It helps if you've gotta linear bod for pants. But Leather high waisted tapered skirts are soooooooo damn hot!!

I personally believe high waisted pants, jeans or otherwise, look best wide-leg (with a properly fitted waist of course). I actually like pleats on such pants, a la Yohji Yamamoto or Raf Simons.

I agree. I was about to edit and add "unless it's handled like Yohji" but was too lazy... :p Thanks for bringing it up!
