Oooh high waisted denim jeans - I can't stop buying them. I must confess I bought two pairs this week. I'm hooked.
Why? For two reasons:
1. Optical illusion
They are truly truly wonderful at making my legs (I'm 5'1") and yours, appear like they grew a few inches and I don't even need to wear heels! They higher waistline also drawers your eye to the tiniest part of you - your waist, again creating a slimmer sihouette.
2. They're a bit like Denim Spanx
The high waist definitely holds everything in, (especially after a big breakfast, lunch or dinner!) and also makes you stand a little taller.
