13 Outfit Formulas for High-Waisted Jeans

In case you haven’t noticed, we’re very much enamored with high-waisted jeans here at Who What Wear. When it comes to denim, we firmly believe that it doesn’t get more flattering or polished than one of the many high-rise styles that every brand has made a staple in their collections. That said, knowing how to put together the perfect high-waisted jeans outfit is obviously essential. You want to pair them with pieces that are the right proportions so as to show off the flattering high waist and look as forward as possible (e.g., go for a slightly cropped top or one that you can tuck in). Adding a belt and/or jacket can often make the outfit even more flattering. Doesn’t sound so hard, right?

To show you how it’s done, we selected some of our favorite high-waisted jean outfits worn by some of the world’s most stylish women. Their outfit formulas are so good that you’ll want to re-create them again and again. You’ll see that there are so many ways to wear them that you’ll never doubt buying a pair again.
