6 Looks That'll Make You Convert To High-Waisted Jeans

High-Waisted Skinny Jeans

“I have often said that I wish I had invented blue jeansthe most spectacular, the most practical, the most relaxed and nonchalant,” the late Yves Saint Laurent once said. “They have expression, modesty, sex appeal, simplicity – all I hope for in my clothes.”


Owning a great pair of jeans takes all the effort out of pulling together an outfit. If you have jeans that fit like a glove, with a considered cut, flattering shape and perfect length, then little else is needed to complete your look. Even throwing on a simple crisp white t-shirt will suffice. 


A style-maker in a league of their own, high-waisted jeans might just be the essential you didn’t realise that your wardrobe was missing. Here’s why: with a silhouette that is statement making, polished, put together, and figure flattering all at once, this staple can be reworked, with new style reinvention repeatedly based on how you wear them. And if you fear that they will become this instant trend and be gone faster than “tiny bag charms,” you’re underestimating just how versatile they really are. 


To give you the right idea, they work on a variety of body types and everyone’s personal styles may vary, sometimes drastically, but they’ve found common ground with the same waist-defining trousers. 

You can make the look your own anyway you decide. It is all about customising the material to fit what works best and looks best on you. 


Denim is a fabric that tends to get along with everyone. When fitted correctly, it passes no unflattering or creasing judgments, act as biased in a wave of pompous attitudes in the storm of endless trends, but once you’ve found the ultimate pair of timeless iconic jeans, they’ll be your loyal campion for life and stick with you through thick and thin. 


Unlike other fabrics, wear will only make them look even better, and despite originating purely as a utilitarian fabric with function trumping its form, denim has since proven to be the very boss of fabrics, mastering the epic skills of being both reliable, versatile, and genderless.


The best stylish advice and trick? Find the style that works best for you, treat them with care, and they’ll serve you well for years. Aftercare is key to extending the shelf-life of your denim. Always wash denim inside out and never tumble dry. 


Shopping for the perfect pair if high-waisted jeans? Below I have shared my 6 favourites.

High-rise slim boyfriend jeans in light wash

"Shifting back to the early 90s styles can always be a fun trip. You don't have to be born in that era to appreciate a style remix. What is old, is new again can be old hat. But not when it comes to pairing a polished light wash boyfriend jeans with your favourite winter ankle boots and a smart classic blazer. This simple outfit can really elevate your natural styling ability."

An Alternative to the typical blue denim

"I don't know why this is, but it seems like white jeans scare the shite out of people. Why is this? Well a lot of people assume they are "unflattering" or cause stains to be more than visible. This can be the case with any material. In terms of venturing into a pair of lighter denim. This is a great alternative to your traditional blue denim usual suspects. It can be dressed up or for a more casual affair, with classic neutrals and bold dynamic colours." 
White high-waisted skinny jeans $15.00, Available at SHEIN.

No matter what the season, these jeans just work on a variety of levels. They make for the little blue pair of classically defined denim. And they just look so damn good with everything how can you pass up not to own a pair."

Tom Ford Closes NYFW22 With A Throwback To The 90's Glam Era

Tom Ford NYFW22 Collection

The champagne was flowing and slick as cool tempted ice, while the front row of the star studded night was light on fire as Tom Ford closed New York Fashion Week at Lincoln Center with a mind-blowing collection filled with hopeful, glitzy, electric glam. It was a complete epic adventure as guests were treated to a great beat at the beginning of the show, to a huge charge of chicness with the first look strutting on the catwalk. 

The designers 120 guests-mandatory masks on for safety protocols were seated on long, soft white couches at the David H. Koch Theater as Ford’s models walked in capris and jacket sets of electric blue and pink, purple sequin party looks and embellished gold crop jackets-some all at the same time as his soundtrack to the show pushed the party along.

Ford, in his show notes, called the splashy show off a sporty evening colour the “90s take off the 70s” that evokes the glossy casual vibe of Los Angeles, where he lives. 

“It’s almost an airbrushed kind of beauty that starts to permeate the mind,” he said. When discussing the collection, he described it as “simple in cut but not in impact.” 

The timing was prescient. Ath-lingerie, you might call it, has been a big trend this week, including on the runway of LaQuan Smith, who was sitting in Ford’s front row. It’s part of fashion’s ’90s love fest, and Ford was the O.G. of that era. So the silky cargo pants, cropped tie-front sequin tops and basketball shorts, and “Tom Ford” logo bra tops he showed should have a special kind of street cred.

He also reclaimed the iconic red velvet suit he designed 25 years ago at Gucci. Famously worn by Gwyneth Paltrow to the MTV Video Awards in 1996, the suit turned up in April in Alessandro Michele’s runway show celebrating Gucci’s 100-year anniversary. Ford altered it with a different cut and shorts, giving it a sexy new currency.

As for the chunky gold chains on early hip-hop stars and ’90s fashion runways, Ford brought those back, too. In addition to gold chain necklaces, cuffs and sculptural stiletto heels, he used them as embellishment on status denim jackets embroidered all over with tiny gold chains. They looked fresh and oh so good.

The last several looks were that of a goldmine, in fact, the gold leopard print really grabbed my attention and stood out to me particularly throughout his collection. It just looks so modern, yet gives a nod to that 90s glamour and added sex appeal while being cool and relaxed at the same time. 

Most of Tom Ford’s shows throughout his whole career have been down right sexy and used fashionable controversy to make a splash. 

But when it comes to his closing collection for NYFW22, it defiantly had a lasting impact. 

One you could defiantly sense in the building even after the show was over. It is completely amazing and unforgettable.

The Corduroy 2021 Shopping Guide: Where to Buy The Biggest Fall Trend Of The Season

Corduroy 2021 Shopping Guide

Ready or not, fall 2021 is right in front of our eyes. While we are fully prepared to say good-bye to the end of summer, the stylish trends this fall are making us excited for the sensational changes. Just recently, designers have gotten into the swing of incorporating the joy of dressing back into their collections with bold colour and amazing fabrics. 

From the return of the early 70s and 90s to severely saturated shades, I can assure you there is no shortage of forward thinking, conversational trends this season, that will give your eyes a definite workout, and I am beyond excited to share one in particular to you that caught my attention.

After studying the unique looks that were trending on the F/W21 runways, I have narrowed it down to one trend that I spotted above the rest, and will define the season ahead. I have also landed on some chic buys that are designed to be the most coveted pieces of the season, from major flared trousers, to statement making suit-wear, and everything in-between. 

Dive into the 70s, with a modern flare in the form of corduroy’s. This trend for 2021, is a very important fashion item you will be adding to your cart and for good reason. It is a light weight fabric that feels so soft to the touch and can be worn in fall and winter seasons. The best part is you can layer it, wear it casual, or go all out dressy for that special occasion. It is one of the most versatile pieces you could ever have rotating in your wardrobe.

Every season, designers seem to have a fresh take on suiting, and it is no different for fall 2021. This time around, the focus is on tailored pieces to layer together into a look. The suit remains the focal point, as always, but there are new players into the world of tailoring to wear with it. Coveted brands such as, Victoria Beckham, Treasure & Bond, AG Prima, Ted Backer London, you’ll notice all the players have layering versatility, and many takes on styling different outfits to fit together. And one key note, all of the tones tend to keep to a neutral family for easy styling.

So which pieces should you add to your closet to tap into this season’s fresh take on the corduroy fabric plus tailoring elements? As far as specific pieces go, I would say a really great pair of trousers in this fabric, a really spectacular coat for many chic possibilities, and an effortless suited up blazer. You can’t go wrong with these choices, and you will get inspired all season long.

Neutrals and minimalistic styling has dominated fashion for some time now, optimism is in the air where fashion is heading at what we’ll be wearing. According to designers like YSL, a great handbag can be the perfect accessory to ease your way into the stylish trend of corduroy. It gives a truly smart appearance while having a classy playful side that adds to your entire look. In this case, it is really all about the specific colour or pattern that adds to the truly sophisticated details.
