Fellow fashion fanatics, rejoice… high-waisted jeans have re-emerged! We all know that Kendall Jenner is a fan, but recently, even Heidi Klum was spotted in a vintage pair. Being a sucker for comfort and style, I’m beyond thrilled about the comeback of this trend! Obviously, I didn’t want to waste any time in sharing my take on it, so here goes…
I’ve had these jeans for quite some time now – purchased them during a street shopping run in Dubai. It’s usually very hard for me to find the perfect pair: if the waist is right, the overall fit is all wrong or the length is too short. However, sometimes the universe rewards me, like it did with this beauty!
High-waisted jeans are known to be hip-hugging (how can ANYONE not love this trend?) They’re just what you need to achieve that coveted curvy silhouette. Add to that a crop top, for that extra 90s spin, and you’re good to go!
I chose this full-sleeved, cross hem top, but if you’re planning to wear a strappy or sleeveless version, feel free to throw on a blazer or long jacket over.
Don’t be afraid to experiment, corsets and striped shirts also look great with these jeans.
Whether it’s chandeliers or hoops, I’ve always had a predilection for long earrings. Recently, I stocked up on accessories and this aquamarine blue pair has quickly become a favourite.
As I was keeping the entire look sporty and casual, the idea was to inject a hint of dressy with the help of accessories. I also donned a cocktail ring in a similar shade of blue. You can do the same or maybe even go all out with a statement watch and stacked bracelets!
White pumps are my ultimate go-to shoes, especially when I want to play up a casual look. I was sticking to neutrals with this ensemble so it only made sense to go with this hue. You can go ahead and wear a bolder, brighter shade. If you want to keep it completely sporty, throw on your sneakers instead!
Ideally, I would have opted for a basic sling or tote bag, but I was trying to use the accessories to amp up the outfit. That’s why I chose this white-silver box clutch to match my white shoes.
Coming to the make-up, I chose to go with my usual glossy pink lips, dark eyeshadow, light pink blush, and black eyeliner and mascara. The orange-red nails added a pop of colour to the otherwise monochrome look.
