The Ultra High-Rise Skinny Jean (In other words, perfection)

Well, it’s happened. I’ve ventured into the territory of the ultra high-rise jean, and i’m loving it. I don’t really know why I never thought to purchase this style before but I couldn’t be happier with the fit, the way they feel, and the versatility of this pair. I have already worn them 3-4 times since purchasing them a few days ago and love that I can wear them with virtually any top tucked in, or a looser fitting style draped over for extra tummy support.


I was originally a little hesitant about the wash of these but think that the subtle fading makes them appropriate for day or night and adds a bit of relaxation to the outfit. The rise on these jeans comes to above 1 inch above my natural belly button which is perfection for sitting with comfort and complete tummy control. The pockets are placed just a smidge higher than I normally go but I think they give a nice lift and are proportioned for this overall style.


Perhaps the most interesting part of this pair is the quality. I went out on a limb and purchased my second pair of designer denim (these are J Brand) and am seriously smitten with the wearability. Designer denim really does allow for a more comfortable fit and better tailor to the body, and these do just that. I feel like these are a second skin in the best way possible and may have just become a J Brand convert. For reference, i’m wearing a size 31 and love them. I could probably have gotten away with a 30 and then stretched them out a bit but the 31 for the time being is just perfection.


Do you rock the ultra high-rise denim trend?

  • I’ve been wearing the high waisted cigarette jeans from Urban Outfitters. I usually just wear them with tops not tucked in, but I really like how it pulls the stomach in and really streamlines the outfit.

      OOo i’ll have to try those. I’m seriously obsessed with these.

    I don’t think they’re flattering for a pear shape, speaking as one, I’d keep (and have) very clear. I think pairing with a different top may have helped balance the look more but this one doesn’t look quite right also the high-waisted look paired with that top and the cut-off point of the jeans doesn’t work for me. But if the style has been bootcut with the same top and fit of jeans at the top, it would have looked great
