For quite some time, I was definitely in the camp of “I will never wear high waisted jeans.” I thought they’d look terrible on me as I have wide hips and I am curvy and I thought they’d either highlight the wrong areas or that they’d look too much like “mom” jeans (and not the cute mom jeans). But, I knew that it had to just be about finding the right pair of high waisted denim and styling it the right way. As you know, ethical fashion is my passion and I wanted to find a great pair of high waisted jeans that were ethically made and these from ABLE are the WINNERS!!!
Let me tell you… these ethically made high waisted jeans are the best ever. In fact, this entire outfit, head to toe, (which is one of my favorite outfits ever) is entirely from the ethical fashion brand ABLE (formerly fashionABLE). Let me first tell you about ABLE and why I love them so much…
ABLE is a lifestyle brand focused on ending generational poverty by working with women who have often overcome extraordinary circumstances. [They] manufacture directly in the communities [they] wish to impact, both locally and globally, creating jobs and ending the cycle of charity dependency.
Isn’t that amazing? THIS is why I love ethical fashion! It’s not only gorgeous and amazing, but it’s also changing the world.
These high waisted jeans are so stretchy and comfortable, but supportive at the waist, and they have the perfect amount of distressing to make them look loved and worn.
For styling these amazing high waisted jeans, I focused on balance. This top from ABLE is so soft and lightweight but it is shorter… by wearing it with high-waisted jeans, it accentuates my curves in the right way, while also elongating my short legs and shortening my long torso. Don’t worry, if you have a short torso, you can still rock, high waisted jeans! You just might want to look for a longer top, tunic, or peplum shirt to offset the high waist on your denim.
My custom silver “L A E” necklace from ABLE is so special to me… I love having a piece of jewelry with my kid’s initials on it.
This tote is an incredible mom bag. It can be worn cross body or over the shoulder and it has enough room in it for my laptop, my camera, my wallet, diapers, wipes, and all the other accoutrements I need to get me through the day. It’s so spacious! It’s also just the perfect classic leather bag that will be stylish for DECADES to come.
And I can’t forget these shoes… these leather d’orsay flats are amazing. I love the cognac color, they’re really comfortable, and they are the perfect flats for wearing with jeans or a dress. They’re so versatile and go with nearly everything in my closet!
I have also teamed up with my friend Carly to show another way to wear high waisted jeans – she is styling light blue jeans for pear shaped bodies! Go check out her post:
