Steal the Look for Less: High Waisted Jeans

The 1970s are calling and they want you to hop back into their high waisted flare jeans! Say goodbye to the skinny jeans and try on a pair! Look even celebrities like Ashlee Green, Ann Hathaway, and Katie Homes are doing it.

That's right give your legs a breather with this trend. It's great to dress up and down and to take from day to night. It should be the new basic piece in your wardrobe.

With winter here these jeans are perfect to layer up with: theremal tops, sweaters, and boots. Since these jeans have lenght in them and can make your legs look wider pair these jeans up with some heels. If you want to do a boot you should do a boot with a little lift (if you aren't a sky high type of girl). Try the Urban Outfitters Deena & Ozzy Tread Boot (1st to the left $68). With these boots you can cuff up you pants like Ann Hathaway did.

I love high waisted jeans and pants because for someone who has a bit of a tummy and doesn't rock the flat abs we can't really get away with wearing crop top shirts. So high waisted pants help hid the tummy and we can get away with wearing cropped shirts. Crop tops like these jeans are fun to dress up and down. They can go from day to night with the right accessories and color. Do a neutral color crop top like the black Urban Outfitters Sparkle & Fade Silk High/Low Tank Top (3rd to the left $48). Dress up the look with some gold jewelry and black pumps like the ASOS PARTYTIME Peep Toe Platform Shoes (3rd from the left $78). Add a simple quilted bag like the Forever21 (3rd from the left $25) and your ready for a night out on the town.
If you want to be casual and chic why not do a throw back t-shirt? Be casual, comfy, and cool for running errands or meeting up with friends for lunch. A throw back shirt is a fun way to play with the vibe of these pants. You can do a old concert t-shirt or even an old team jersey like the Delias NFL t-shirt (last on the right $33). Step up the chicness and wear some wedge feels like the Jeffrey Campbell 99 Tie bootie (last on the left $115). Another way to keep it casual cool for the winter season do a sloutchy knit sweater like the Topshop Knitted Slouchy Stitch Jumper (2nd on the left $63).
This look is all about finding your inner hippy so feel the vibe of these pants and go with the flow.
