Review: BDG High-Waist Black Jeans


Nordstrom top (similar), J.Crew belt, BDG high-waist jeans, Sam Edelman sandals (my color is sold out, but my next pair will be these)

Get ready to see quite a bit of these jeans in the months to come. I tweeted a few weeks back that I was searching for the perfect pair of high-waist black jeans and one of my lovely readers, Franziska responded with a recommendation for these BDG jeans from Urban Outfitters. I quickly went online and at $38 a pop after sale, I ordered two pairs at varying sizes to test them out. I ended up with my usual size (i’m typically between a 30-31, and went with a 31) and love them.


They are true skinny jeans, tapering very tightly around the ankle which I appreciate. They also are very high-waisted on me, sitting about an inch above my belly button. The material isn’t as sturdy as some designer jeans, and it feels like I might have to repurchase these after a few months of wear, but i’m so thrilled to have found a cheap black jean alternative.



The pockets are placed just a tad bit wide for my particular rear end but boyfriend gave them the nod of approval, so I decided to keep them regardless. To this day the only pair of black jeans I have found that have the proper pocket placement for me are Ann Taylor curvy slims, and those fade very quickly and don’t taper narrow enough to tuck into boots.



 Please let me know if you check out these jeans and what you think!

    I know I’m a little late to this post and that you might not see this. I have the jeans you featured here and love them. But have you tried the BDG seamed high rise jeans? It is obscene how much I wear them. Obscene. I have them in black and in blue and want the rest.

      I haven’t! But I always felt that seam would hit in a weird place? Thanks for the rec!

    Hi – just wondering if you’ve noticed these jeans getting baggy? I have just received a pair in size 30 (the style is now completely sold out) and they are probably a little loose but wearable. But if they stretch they will be too big, so I’m not sure whether to return and wait for some more to appear.

    Any advice would be great!
