High waist jean shorts can be tricky to style or might seem intimidating to wear if you’re not used to them. They’re so comfy, and once you find what to pair them with, they help create an effortless, yet polished and stylish summer look!
FIND YOUR WASH. I usually prefer dark wash jeans whether they’re shorts or pants. Light washes are more casual, while darker washes are easier to dress up or down.
FIND YOUR FIT. The high waist jean shorts I’m wearing are fitted, with a good bit of stretch, and cuffed at the bottom. An alternative look would be a looser pair of thrift store jeans that are cut off and frayed at the bottom. The style is all up to you, but make sure that they fit comfortably. Too big or too small and they’ll just be unflattering.
FIND YOUR STYLE. If you’re confident enough to rock that crop top, go for it girl! But if you’re like me, and crop tops aren’t part of your wardrobe, try a tank top or graphic tee tucked into your high waist jean shorts. I added this bright kimono on top that I picked up in Thailand, so I skipped a belt. Another option is to keep the rest of your outfit simple, like a plain white tee, and let a bright belt and shoes do the talking!
Whether you’re on an ice cream run or singing with your favorite band at a music festival, high waist jean shorts should definitely be part of your summer wardrobe! Use the hashtag #cmariecollective to show me how you style your high waist jean shorts!
