Many years ago, when the low rise trend was still going strong, I purchased a pair of black AG low-rise bell-bottom jeans that verged into palazzo territory. They were my go-tos for forever, and I still have them tucked into a drawer. Having loved them so, I can’t bear to let them go, even though I’m quite sure I’ll never again don a low-rise style.
Meanwhile, this Frame style (Le Palazzo, $255) is the closest I’ve see to my beloved AG’s, but with an appealingly high waist.
As I mentioned, none of my jeans fit me at the moment, and trust me, I realize the irony of writing a denim blog when you can’t really wear any denim. But I’ve given myself a deadline to get back in the denim game: If my jeans don’t fit by March, with a heavy sigh I will acquiesce to my new size. And I think these will be my first purchase.
