If I have to choose one pair of jeans each season as a favorite style, this season definitely for me is all about the high waisted skinny jean. They give you an amazing silhouette and make you look taller and slimmer. And the very best reason to absolutely love high waist: they kinda hide the dreaded muffin-top on your hips and waistline. I have this problem with the very low rise skinny jeans, there is always a little something showing that should be in absolute hiding LOL!
Citizens of Humanity’s Rocket Jeans have been around for a few seasons already. In the beginning I used to look at them with a kind of skepticism. Remember, not so long ago we were all about boyfriends and low rise skinnies. High waist – no way. Also, I always had the problem with high waisted jeans that they used to fit snug at the legs and hips and then gap at the waist.
Then I started posting about all those celebrities in the Rocket and this really made me think of seriously trying for an “involvement” with high waisted jeans.
So, what happened was, that the other day, the CoH guys sent me a pair of these high waisted babies in my fave wash to try on. The wash is a vintage wash with rips at the knee. And … well, you can figure out what happened. L’amour, love, amore….
Honestly, I am not saying this because of any reason other than the fit is really awesome. AND, as I always like to point out – they are super soft, form fitting but “real” denim and not twill or stretch pants. Being that they only have 2% of elastic, the quality of the denim is perfect. The jeans feel and look like real jeans.
And the washes, ladies, they are incredible. Like those grey ones – last image below – are really outstanding and super different.
You can purchase the Rockets pretty much in most high end stores that sell denim, and you can find them online here.
