My Favorite High Waisted Denim Jeans

Favorite High Waisted Denim


High waisted denim jeans have been my go-to style for the past year.  Is it just me or do they seem to put everything where it’s supposed to go? They flatter most, if not all, body types, can be dressed up or down, and give me the confidence to wear a crop top that I normally wouldn’t wear. I am really hoping they aren’t a fad that plans to leave anytime soon.

The pair shown in the photos above are from Topshop (linked below) and definitely get the most wear. They have a great stretchy fabric and are the highest waisted pair I own.  I often pair them will a crop top, but also love a long tunic with them, too.  The hem is very skinny, so perfect when wearing tall boots. 

Below I am sharing a few of my other pairs of high waisted denim. These have all been tried and tested and would definitely purchase again!


1.) Mango High Waisted Denim

These are priced super well and feel really durable.  They do not mold to my waist like the Topshop pair, but provide a little more wiggle room.  These are just my throw on with sneakers and walk out the door jeans.

2.) Banana Republic High Waisted Gravity Jeans

BR jeans is where it all began.  I was shopping one day and one of the workers there asked me if I had ever tried high waisted denim.  I was little unsure about it, but I tried on these same pair of jeans with a pair of heels and I was hooked.  BR makes great denim and used to be my favorite before I discovered Madewell’s denim. Banana Republic typically has 40-50% sales each month, so wait until then to purchase to get a better deal.

3.) Madewell 10-Inch Chewed Hem Skinny Jeans

These were a splurge, but well worth it.  They are my best fitting jeans in my closet (I like them even more than Paige denim) and they don’t stretch out too much during the day.  The button detail is super cute and adds a nice touch to basic denim.  They are definitely the most flattering on my body.  The only downsize is I don’t find myself wearing them in the colder months as much because of the light wash.

What’s your favorite denim? Are you into skinny jeans, boyfriend fit, or something different?
