Susan’s top pick for oh-so-flattering high-waisted jeans this fall? Esprit Coated Waxed Jeans!

EspritWhen it comes to denim, the last few years have been an unending round of “how low can you go?” Low rise jeans (to the point of vulgarity) were all a gal could find, no matter where she shopped. As my favorite Calvin’s and Levi’s began to turn pale from washing and so thin that the knees were coming through, even I was forced to succumb.

But the horror! Low rise jeans look great on approximately 3% of the population (all under the age of 15, plus a few supermodels for good measure). Even women with decent figures can sometimes suffer from the dreaded muffin top and denim-imposed love handles. And, don’t get me started on exposed underwear!

Luckily, designers in their infinite wisdom, have seen fit to swing the fashion pendulum back to high-rise jeans this year. And, I for one, am thrilled! Fitted at the natural waist, gently hugging the hips, and tapered to the ankle, paired with some 5” pumps – now that’s what jeans are supposed to look like!

This season, I am in love Coated Waxed Jeans from Esprit. Made from a waxed cotton blend with a concealed zip fly and top button closure, these jeans have the traditional five pocket styling with a high-rise waist and a regular fit (I leave the jeggings to pre-teens).

They are perfect paired with a cute cardigan sweater and flats, dressed up with a jacket, scarf and heels, or a sweatshirt and scruffy Sperry’s! Retail $80

I’m interested… are you embracing the high-waisted jeans trend this fall?
