High-waisted jeans: Outfit yourself in these high-rise, food baby-restraining denim bottoms
What a waist!
Forget Daisy Dukes and mum jeans; the 2010s have birthed more viral denim moments than one can shake a stick at. We've experienced (not seen, experienced) asymmetric jeans from Ksenia Schnaider — which were most recently snapped in Paris, on Céline Dion — jeans with nine-foot-long legs from Bronze 56k (yes, really), and extreme cutout jeans from Carmar denim that had far more 'cutout' than 'denim' going for them.
In light of this, the recent resurgence of high-waisted denim styles doesn't seem all that newsworthy; and yet, many people are appealing against their return with a level of fervour that should only be reserved for protesting old-timey racism and climate change inaction. Below, we've compiled some of our favourite high-waisted denim memes, as well as a shoppable gallery of lustworthy examples — click on the captions to shop them all.
