Who does a high rise jean work best for?
What are the pitfalls of high rise jeans?
How do I know whether or not I have a long or short torso?
How can I quickly tell how high a rise is in the store?
Are high rise jeans uncomfortable?
Where can I find the best deal?
First the best deal is going to be the pair that you wear them most and you feel the best in. Don’t evaluate your purchase on the initial price of purchase, take the price and divide it by the number of times you will wear it. You want a low cost per wear, not just a low cost. So if you spend $100 on a pair of jeans and wear them twice a week for a year, your cost per wear is 96 cents per wear. Alternatively if you bought a pair for $35 and only wore them once a week for 4 months, the cost per wear would be $2.19 per wear. The $100 pair would be a better value and you’d probably feel better each wear…which is why you wore them more in the first place. That being said, my favorite pair of jeans is Madewell, but if you are between sizes or just want to try our an extreme trend, I’d check out Old Navy. I have a whole post detailing each of my 5 favorite jeans and where to buy them.
