So this trend of high waisted jeans has been around for a minute now…and though it initially seemed atrocious beyond words, it doesn’t seem to be going away. Perhaps I’ve been brainwashed, but a few celebs lately have been able to pull the look off…or do they? Let’s take a look:
Beyonce is gorgeous, yes, but are her jeans? She rocks a high waist with what looks like a House of D t and suspenders…
Ciara also favors suspenders, and balances the high waist with a short shirt…
Ships ahoy! Genevieve Jones prefers the sailor look…
J. Lo keeps it sassy and sexy in sleek skinny high waisted jeans and stilettos…
And Nicole Richie takes a risk in Sass& Bide high waisted cut offs with a tank tucked in.
