How California Girls Wear High-Waisted Jeans


Toby Jacobs

California girls have a serious affinity for denim. Skinnies, jean jackets, boyfriend jeans—you name it and they probably own it. So it comes as no surprise that when L.A.’s fashion set steps out for an industry event, the fabric takes center stage. The evidence? Last week, we threw a party to celebrate AG’s new store opening at Newport Beach’s Fashion Island, hosted by Kat Collings, our very own editor in chief. Attendees included bloggers Taye Hansberry of Stuff She Likes, Tania Sarin of TSarin, and Lisa Dengler of Just Another, all of whom arrived wearing some seriously cool high-waisted jeans.

As you’d expect, the outfit combinations we spied in-store were nothing short of stylish—we can already see ourselves re-creating them all spring long. So if you’re looking for new ways to style your denim this season, call off the search. Not only are we giving you a peek inside the party, we’re also showing you two very simple ways to get that easy, effortless West Coast look du jour via high-waisted jeans. Ready to look truly Californian (wherever you are)? Today we’re showing you how its done.
