paperbag jeans
Miu Miu Blue High-Rise Paperbag Jeans ($593)

There is one denim style that has been part of many denim collections for years, but never received much of a mention. The high waisted paperbag or ruffled waist jeans.

One of the main reason probably is that these are kind of difficult to style. Meaning, you can’t just wear them and throw on any tee or sweater on top. This style requires a top which has to be worn tucked into the jeans. Not everybody’s kind of styling, we get it.

But then again, here, @Denimology, part of our job description is writing not only about the trendiest but about all kinds of jeans. Like classic icons, always trending, “also-running” styles, and so on.

The paperbag jeans trend is not easy to define, it could be always trending, or also-running. But if you are a denim lady who already owns a closet full of jeans, then adding a different kind of style is always a welcome option.

So, here are our picks of paperbag and ruffled waist jeans that you can buy right now. And if you are not yet convinced then take into consideration that high waisted jeans always make you look taller and slimmer. And also, it’s kind of challenging and fun to figure out how to tuck your oversized sweater or sweatshirt into your jeans… or, at least, halfway into;-)
