    How to wear high waisted jeans over 40

    As you age, it can be harder to jump on the latest fashion trends. It might seem like only the young people are wearing high-waisted jeans, but that is simply not true. Fashion is for everybody, no matter age or size or any other measure. Not to mention, high-waisted jeans are a flattering option for anyone. They create a beautiful silhouette and are super easy to style!

    The first step is buying the right high-waisted jeans. At the end of the day, the right choice is the jeans that make you feel both comfortable and stylish. But, here are some things to consider if you find yourself struggling:

    They are meant to accentuate your waist. This may seem obvious, but it’s worth pointing out. High waisted jeans are meant to define your waist and hit at the smallest point on your body. So when you’re shopping for high waisted jeans, you may find that your sizing differs. You might also notice that different styles suit you better, such as wide leg vs skinny jeans.

    High waisted jeans can be styled so many ways. You will truly never run out of ways to style high waisted jeans. It’s definitely trendy at the moment to wear a pair with a cropped shirt, but that isn’t your only option. You can also wear a longer shirt and tuck in the front or the side of the shirt to accentuate your waist line. High waisted jeans will help elongate your legs. You can wear them with any type of shoe, but they look particularly good with a pair of chunky heels or platform shoes. They also come in a myriad of colors, from standard denim to white, black, and everything in between. If you are styling high waisted jeans for the first time, try sticking with some basic colors and washes that you already have in your closet. That way, you know that you’re likely to have shirts and accessories you feel comfortable pairing with them.

    Where to find high waisted jeans? 

    If you’re looking to add a pair of high waisted jeans to your closet, it might be best to purchase a less expensive pair to begin with. You don’t want to buy a very low quality item — as the size and fit might be completely different (and less flattering) than something of higher quality. However, you’ll want to look at mid-range pricing when you’re trying out any new clothing item for the first time.

    Women’s wholesale clothing can be a very convenient place to find a quality pair of high waisted jeans for a lower price. Shopping at local boutiques that source wholesale clothing, or going directly to the source, can help you find what you are looking for. Once you’ve figured out the style and fit you enjoy, and you’ve proven that they are a worthy addition to your closet, then you can splurge on some more expensive pairs that will last you much longer.
