Denim Diary: My Most Worn Style of Jeans

Denim Diary: My Most Worn Style of Jeans

I love a good pair of jeans. Apart from them being versatile and practical, they are excellent failproof. I was going through my closet the other day and realized I have been wearing a particular style of jeans – Levi’s '70s high slim straight jeans, which I've in dark wash blue and black (trainwreck) colorway, while my other pairs of jeans are gathering dust 😀

I love the '70s straight jeans from Levi’s because of how they fit. They are classic vintage and are very flattering. It has a slim fit through my hip and thighs and a high rise of 12 inches, which means it sits slightly above my belly button.

In addition, it has an inseam of 31 inches, making it full-length. For reference, I am 168 cm tall and wear a pair of Levi’s jeans size 23/24W/31L. I prefer a pair of high-waisted full-length jeans.

Also, since sizing may vary, it’s nice you have an idea of your apparel measurement: your height, waist, hips, in-seam, and full length. This way, you have an idea of your size and fit, and you can compare that to your preferred brands’ fit and size charts to estimate what works best for you.

When styling a pair of high-waisted jeans, I aim to create a well-defined waistline and a balanced look with the rest of my outfit. I like pairing jeans with a white T-shirt or button-down shirt for a classic casual look.

For an elevated look, throw on a blazer and a pair of heels and accessorize with a fine necklace and bracelet to complement your look. Finally, you can dress down by wearing a pair of sneakers.
