The qualm we hear most about high rise jeans is that they remind you of your mum; they are coined with the opinion that you need to be much older to wear them. However, this is usually uttered by those who have never tried a high rise jean, as most of you can and have been converted.
The fact is that high rise jeans are not only super comfortable, but incredibly flattering. You don’t necessarily need to flaunt that you’re wearing a 10″ rise by tucking something in (although this looks great too). Wear a t-shirt or blouse loose over the top and no one is any the wiser that your smooth silhouette (which is fabulously muffin-top free) is a trick of some great fitting denim!
Brands are cottoning on to the trend, which is great news for us as it means so much more choice than a few years ago. We love that Citizens of Humanity gave us the Rocket skinny (seen on Jessie J above) so that high rise lovers could also buy into the coated denim trend.
At Trilogy we have high rise jeans in every shape to suit your need, from skinny to flared. Shop online for the latest or come in store for advice from the team.
J Brand and Goldsign offer a good selection of high rise skinnies. J Brand’s Maria and Major have been favourites at Trilogy for seasons! We think they are the perfect accompanyment to a floaty blouse or oversized knit, whilst the narrow leg shape is so easy for tucking into your winter boots.
James Jeans’ Hunter is a fantastic high rise straight leg. Always available in a clean, dark wash these jeans are ideal for the evening or as a timeless everyday essential.
Our favourite high rise bootcuts are available from Goldsign and Paige. The Hidden Hills (right) is a classic bootcut that looks amazing with heels and the double waistband ensures the high rise is even more comfortable. Goldsign’s Quinn is a slimmer alternative if you are more petite or are looking for an easy option to wear with flat shoes.
The Marrakesh by MiH is the perfect flared jean. Make a statement of the high rise by tucking a blouse in, or wear something fitted and tucked out. These black Marrakesh look great in the evening, or opt for a lighter shade ready for your summer wedges.
