The Most Flattering High Waist Jeans For Every Woman (2023)

A look that’s trendy, flattering, AND comfortable? Sign. Us. Up. It wasn’t that long ago that high waist jeans were considered decidedly unhip. But celebrity style icons have embraced contemporary high rise styles and it’s no wonder why. Jeans with a high waist sit higher on your torso, which prevents the waistband from digging in and elongates the leg, thanks to the extra fabric. Whether your preferred style is skinny or boyfriend, dark wash or distressed, there are on-trend high-waisted jeans for you. We’ve scoured the internet to find the best celebrity high-waisted looks, and for every pair of designer denim listed below, we’ve included a more affordable option.
