How To Style High-Waisted Jeans Three Ways

Today, I created three looks, incorporating my favorite pair of high-waisted jeans currently, and a handful of different tops.
These are some great, easy, and almost effortless Summer looks for myself.

High-waisted anything are my jam, but these jeans, pictured below, are definitely going to be a staple in my closet.Processed with VSCO with c1 preset
The high-waisted style of apparel is a very prevalent trend, especially in women’s fashion. As waist lines are rising, one must rise to the occasion.

These high-waisted jeans are quite simplistic and a classic pair of denim that can easily be dressed-up, or dressed-down. So versatile!


Look 1

The first look is quite fun and girly, or it is girly for me. The top incorporates the peplum trend, a trend which I never truly experimented with, because it was quite girly. I hovered back to my safe place with this top by purchasing it in black, my favorite color. While this top is almost out of my comfort zone, it is an easy piece to work with, and not many “fun and girly” pieces are easy to work with and pair with. Fun and girly are great for the Summer, though. I paired the top with two chokers, one gold and one silver, and layered them accordingly.


Look 2

The second look incorporates another “fun and girly” Summer trend. The top I chose to incorporate into this look was a black, velvet tie-top, with a very subtle peplum detail. While velvet is not truly in season during the Summer, a velvet version of a popular Summer trend can always make a velvet piece work for the Summer. I reverted to black, once again, when purchasing this top. I bejeweled this look with two neck pieces. The gold basic choker was layered over the turquoise stone necklace. I love experimenting with the lengths of necklaces and necklines – the longer the neckline, the longer the necklace.
This look is a great, versatile look for the day and the night. Small changes to this look can make this look a great “going-out” look, as well as a simple brunch look.

 


Look 3

This last look incorporates another major Summer trend, the infamous graphic tee. While I have been on the search for a top similar to this for years, I finally made the leap of faith and purchased this tropical graphic tee from H&M. Graphic tees and high-waisted denim is always the right decision – it can do no wrong.
This look is very casual and a great look to throw on when you cannot find anything else, or do not want to try too hard. Jewelry is super minimal with this look, but incorporating your daily neckwear is always recommended.
Have fun with your graphic tees and find the right ones.


High-waisted jeans ain’t no lie, and regardless of the season, you can always count on them to keep you looking trendy and hip.
Playing with the lengths of the hemline of your top and the waistline of your jeans is always fun, play around with tops of different lengths and see what happens.

What are your favorite ways to wear your high-waisted jeans this Summer?
Have a SUNderful day!

Festies W/ My Besties

Music festival season is upon us, with Weekend 1 of Coachella to kickstart the festival season off just right.

This year’s appropriate festival wear includes:

  1. Two-Piece Matching Set Ensembles: Usually the matching set includes both a top and a bottom matching set, usually incorporating a crop-top and a dress, or a skirt. Ways to wear two-piece matching set ensembles include printed two-piece  sets, velvet two-piece sets, bright vibrant color two-piece sets, and basic two-piece sets, to list off a few ways to sport this relevant trend.
    Two-pieces are also usually light and airy, allowing you to be able to move, be comfortable, and dance your booty off. This trend is meant to bring elegance and comfort into one trend.
  2. Body Jewelry and Chains – Body chains have taken over the festival seen. You can wear them with just about anything from two-piece matching sets to crop tops, and high waisted shorts. They are a great way to accent your outfit and add an effortless, bohemian chic look to your outfit. You can see them sported at festivals everywhere, year-round.
  3. Sheer – Whether it’s sheer lace or a black sheer top, sheer is in. Sporting sheer tops with elegant or fun bandeaus or bralettes is the move this season. Light layering is a big key to festival attire, as the temperature of your own body and your environment may constantly change around you. It is light and airy, another big theme of this upcoming festival wear.
  4. Overalls – Denim, not denim, black, white, skirt, shorts, whatever! Overalls are in and are one of the biggest ways to make a statement, be fun, and be comfortable. This is much more of a minimalist, casual look, but with all the variety of overalls, there is certainly no shortage of ways to make this look more updated. Adding a belt, sporting it with a cute bralette or crop top is a great way to finish this look off.
  5. Bodysuits – There is an endless supply of bodysuits wherever you shop nowadays.
    Whether you want them low-cut, deep-v, high-neck, etc. there’s most certainly a market for this very comfortable, cute trend. Bodysuits are basically the basics of festival attire, as they can be paired with virtually anything, including flowy pants, high-waisted bottoms, skirts, overalls, etc. They come in all varieties, just like plain white t-shirts do. They are timeless, easy to sport, and a definitive “yes” for this season.
  6. Sequins and glitter – These two are always in for festival season. Glitter and sequins allow you to interact with your inner child and channel some fun into your look. Face glitter, glitter roots, face jewelry…these trends are all in this festival season, as they’ve been around for forever. Sequins and glitter are a fun to dress up, or spruce your entire outfit up and can be a complete game changer. Play with glitter and sequins, and of all different colors to achieve a festive look this season.
  7. Fun buns – This season is centered around fun, practical trends that can be worn functionally at a festival, or a concert. Fun buns are always in, in my book. This season they are especially in. You can wear them in a half-up or wear full on two buns, for double the fun. This playful, flirty trend is a great way to make your whole outfit a little more unique, and the best part? Your hair stays out of your face!
  8. Braids – Incorporating french braids or simple braids to your outfit to finish off a look exudes a sporty look, which is in this season. Look out for braided hair, cornrows, fishtails, and french braids this season, as they are making appearances everywhere. Braids are functional, and similar to fun buns, keep your hair out of your face. For a more chic, effortless, sporty look, gravitate towards braids to complete your look.
