I’m not a fan of low rise denim, and as much as I try tucking in my shirt to my jeans, it’s a challenge. So naturally, high waisted jeans are my go to.

And they’re great to pair with crop tops which are the upcoming season’s hottest trend, and I’m eager to try.

    I imagine you must avoid NYDJ because they’re marketed toward older women, but I’ve tried a few of the ones you recommend above and in me NYDJ fit much, much better. Their new legging style actually fits more like a real skinny jean (their “skinny” is more of a strait
