High waists can be high fashion

We run a constant battle in our minds over high rise jeans -- they are absolutely comfortable, but can they possibly be cute?

Believe it or not, you can wear a pair of jeans with a high rise -- and something other than a pair of high-waisted bell bottoms. It's true!

And, get this: You will not run the risk of having your butt crack show every time you bend down to fix your shoelaces! We know, we know, low-rise skinny jeans are "it" for the sexy young thangs -- and we love them, too, but when you consider all those thong-baring drawbacks, you may just want to add a few of these to your closet!

High Waist Jeans

1 Joe's Visionaire Skinny Stretch Denim Jeans $167 -- Dark, sleek, skinny - there's nothing "mom" jeans about this choice!
2 AG Stevie Jeans $168 -- Every girl needs a slim, straight pair of jeans - make this your choice.
3 AG Stilt Jeans $148 -- This is a great, versatile choice -- will look great with your favorite ballerina flats, or tucked into tall boots!

4 Gap 1969 Mid-weight Skinny Bootcut Jeans $70 -- We love the price, but we're gaga for that built-in worn-in perfect medum blue look (without having to wear them until they get to that point!)
Levi's 646 Flare High Rise Jeans $65 on sale -- Denim with a bit of flare. Yes, you'll get the hippie jokes. You may even be the one making them - but you'll look totally cute while you are at it!
6 Joe's Visionaire Boot-Cut Stretch Jeans $169 -- We love how these feel cool and casual, and yet the dark deep wash makes them fine for more formal outings!
