They fit amazingly well. Nothing better then classic rise Levis. Low rise has had its day in the sun. Gotta say i was over it a while ago, and I don’t see any reason to backslideâ€¦pun intended? What I hate is how thrift stores realize that they can get money for any older Levis, so you pay more for them then new ones. It seems unfair.
The first pic is amazing—classic, elegant, timeless. I would have NO idea when the photo was taken (sans cars)–could be the 60′s, 70, 80s, etc. etc. This classic, simple elegance is what has been missing from “street style” for a very long time, folk trying tooooooooo hard. It is perfect. Thank you.
Oh, my early youth went at the fashion time of “jeans on hips” (you remember: short T-shirts, a naked tummy, Shakira))). And very long time it seemed to me that all that is sitting above, than 6 cm higher a navel are from the end of the 80th. And it isn’t modern at all. But, times change, now I LOVE high rise jeans. Great fotos ;)
They are vintage for sure, and probably pretty spend, unless she is one of the smart ones who bought them at Goodwill for 5 dollars before everyone else hopped onto the bandwagon. I would think they are 1980′s 505. It excites me just to see them in a picture.
The first lady in the high waist Levi’s outfit appears super confident and comfortable with her great simple style. True elegance without all the trappings – she probably does that wonderfully too. Far too many ‘fashion victims’ around at the moment.
High waist is practical for bike riding. Low waist would give you a whale tail (woman 1st world problem of thong poking thru). Scott…there you go again…trying to makes us look ‘decent’ while balancing on 2 wheels…. ;) xo
How can they be high waisted pants? The narrow part of your torso is where your waist is and on these gals that’s where these pants start. For far too long the big mouth fashion bullies have held sway and women go along with their pronouncements. Those are at waisted pants and what is wrong with that.
