High Waisted Jeans - How DL1961 Stack Up

DL1961 Jeans

Update the hardest working section of your wardrobe with this denim guide 


High Waisted
As lovers of denim, it should come as no surprise that denim is always one of our wardrobe staples, no matter the weather or season. Denim trends come and go but the style that always stands the tests of time is the High-Waisted Jean. Flattering for all body types, they cinch in at your waist making it the smallest part of your body and accentuate all the right curves. 
A quality pair of jeans that fit and flatter are well worth the time and effort it takes to find them, but to make this process easier pop in-store for a free styling consultation where we can find that perfect pair for you no matter your shape size or budget. All of our DL1961 jeans are high-waisted, so no matter if you are a classic skinny girl, or love the new straight cut have the high rise jeans for you. 

The Classic Skinny
Skinny jeans have now transitioned into a classic sillouhette and wardrobe staple, and for so many of us are still our go-to when it comes to denim. The Farrow jeans in the skinny cut  have been designed in a dark-blue hue that will work with everything from muted neutrals to bold, graphic prints and are ideal for the Autumnal months that are fast approaching. For a slimming look opt for darker denim, as the colour will make your legs appear slimmer and more proportionate to your body. Having said that, light wash and white denim is a huge trend that can now transition into the Winter months, so when it comes to your skinnies no rules apply. 

The Straight Leg

We all know and love the classic skinny jean but denim is not stopping there; introducing the Straight Jean, seen all over runways for this season. Chic and relaxed, they offer style without compromising on comfort. 
Straight jeans should not be tight, but too oversized they can look baggy in the wrong places and shorten your leg length. DL1961 have created the perfect straight leg jeans that are fitted around the waist but have a little more breathing room around the legs. This style might not be what you are used to, but it will quickly become your favourite go-to look for a relaxed look. To elongate the legs style them with a heeled boot or stiletto, this creates a look seen regularly amongst celebrities and the fashion elite. 

How to Style your Denim

We love the easy, laid-back fit and contoured waistband of the straight jeans from DL1961. Designed in a classic culotte silhouette that rises above the ankle, we would air ours with boots which are ideal when we come into the cooler weather. Combine two of the biggest trends right now by styling yours with a cowboy boot such as the Pons Quintana Crocodile boots. To create a flattering sillouhette on top, we suggest a relaxed blouse french-tucked into the front of your jeans for a chic daytime look. You can also style the with an over-shirt or shirt dress worn open which creates a feminine shape that still shows your figure underneath.

Skinny jeans are incredibly versatile and can be styled in a number of ways. The high-rise waist of our DL1961's work well styled with cropped jumpers and tucked-in tops. This paired with the skinny style will elongate your figure making you look taller and slimmer, especially when worn with a heeled boot or pair of pumps. A huge trend this season is the shirt dress and we love to pair our skinny jeans with a polo neck jumper and a shirt dress worn open which will keep you warm when the weather turns. By experimenting with layering you can create a modern and chic outfit all from using the skinny high-waisted jean as your foundation piece.
