What You Should Really Wear With Your High-Waisted Jeans

Illustrated by Sydney Hass.
A crop top isn't the only thing you can wear with high-waisted jeans. Sure, it's a great solution because it hits in just the right place to show off the top of your go-to blues, but it's definitely not the only option. Come fall, you might not want to be showing off that sliver of midriff when it starts to get chillier. Instead, you can start to tuck in full-length tops or layer with cropped jackets or oversized sweaters.

Plus, with the wide variety of high-waisted jeans available, there's no reason to default to the typical high-waisted-skinnies-and-a-crop-top outfit. From the return of the flare to the ultra-popular denim culotte, experiment with your silhouette and play with proportions to create outfits that look both polished and unexpected. Click on for five high-waisted jeans outfits that will get your gears turning.
