Elle Macpherson, AnnaLynne McCord, Alessandra Ambrosio
I’m not a huge fan of high-waist jeans since they remind me of “mom jeans”. They do give a cool 70’s retro vibe (wide-leg styles) yet are still not figure-friendly especially around the butt area (it really accentuates that part of the body!). I find that for those who are lean yet have an hourglass shape look the best in these types of jeans. Although I’m thin & somewhat tall, I’m hesitant to wear high-waist denims due to the way they make my butt look… flat. Finding the perfect high rise pants that will be flattering to my figure is not an easy task to say the least.
However, I actually adore this particular jeans look (at least from the front) on the celebs above. The front pockets make the pelvic area more forgiving by perfectly placing them on the front, not skewed to the side as seen on most pants. Another trick is to wear a belt so it won’t look as elongated. Elle Macpherson is wearing Stella McCartney bootcut, both Annalynne McCord & Alessandra Ambrosio are wearing J Brand Bette Jeans (my fav below), both brands in a very similar style – the power of pockets!
