Oh hello, there! It’s our old friend our the high-rise jeans! This timeless style will forever be a classic in the world of denim. In 2020, you will see many designers adopt this trend and take it to the next level. The style will see an increase in the inseam measurements along with varying silhouettes. Names like “pinch waist” and “ribcage jeans” will be given to these styles. Both these jean types will become examples of designs that will be made to hit as high as they can on your body-type and your frame to focus on your waist.

If your vintage-finds looked like they had been taken right out of a thrift store, then you’ve definitely nailed the look!


Oh, how we loved the 90s! Thanks to the big names in fashion like Celine, Gucci and Marc Jacobs, this leg-lengthening, flared denim silhouettes are going to be huge in 2020. You can opt for a high-waisted pair that cinches at the waist with a narrow belt for best results!
