From Rachel Green’s classic denim days to Carrie Bradshaw’s chic straight-leg jeans avatar, we have obsessed over high rise jeans since the 90s. These cool and comfy denims have now made a fashionable comeback and we are head over heels in love with them.

The good news is that there’s at least one version of high rise jeans for every body type. Moreover, you can style different types of top with high waist jeans in as many ways as you want and you will look utterly stylish.
Don’t spoil the endless styling possibilities of classic high waist denim by getting stuck in the jeans-tshirt rut. Add a fun element to your fashion game by pulling together an exciting look with a top that does fashion justice to your jeans. Up ahead, here are all the types of high-waist jeans that should be a part of your wardrobe and fashion guide to style different types of top with high waist jeans
From Marilyn Monroe to Katie Holmes, celebrities seem to be obsessed with boyfriend jeans. The idea of boyfriend jeans may be borrowed from mens’ denim but they are every inch feminine. Though comfort is the key here, these denims don’t necessarily have to be baggy.
When it comes to choosing tops for high rise boyfriend jeans, you have some of the most fabulous choices in hand:
Turtlenecks can make even this ‘modest’ pair of jeans look sexy. Wear it with a trench coat or long jacket in winters to look every bit fashionable.
Bralettes are love. You can wear them separately as tops with your denim or beneath a shirt if you don’t want much of skin show. When paired with boyfriend jeans and sneakers, they give the perfect street style vibe.
Go for a flirty blouse like an off-shoulder top to add an element of glamour instantly. High waist denim paired with cold shoulder tops are also a fabulous choice for your next girls’ night.
We are forever grateful to this pair of comfy jeans that looks slightly baggy, tapers at the ankles and feels unarguably relaxed just like the boyfriend jeans. These denims have a more relaxed fit around the zipper. However, mom jeans can look unflattering if you pick the wrong pair. Be careful that you pick one that fits perfectly around your waist and has a leg style that flatters your figure.
These fab tops can complement your high waist jeans the best:
A graphic tee tucked inside a pair of mom jeans will take you back to the 90s. Team it up with a color blocked shrug or a long cardigan and sneakers and you are good to go.
Wear dark washed mom jeans with a formal blazer and a professional blouse and rock the business casual look like a diva.
This made-for-each-other combination is perfect for a day out in summers. Ankle length boots look great with this outfit. Tie your hair with a bandana and wear huge silver hoops for a hollywood-inspired look.
A fancy ruffled top over a pair of mom jeans can be a great option on days when you don’t want to wear a dress or a skirt to a party. Complete the look with statement heels and a bold lip colour.
No woman’s wardrobe is complete without the perfect pair of skinny jeans. They go well with everything- shirts, high necks, blazers and blouses. When styled appropriately these denims also make a great addition to the work wardrobe on days when the dress code is business casual.
Here’s everything that will look great with your high waist skinnies:
For a retro look, wear your skinny high waist jeans with a sexy bell-sleeved top or shirt. Keep your makeup on fleek and make sure your shoe game is on point.
Florals are everywhere, right from our tops to skirts and shoes to bags. Floral patterns on tops with plunging V-necklines look great for a girl-next-door look. Tuck the top in your denim for a refined look.
A blouse tucked neatly inside a pair of skinny jeans can be your go-to party wear. Finish the look with a pair of OTT earrings and sky-high stilettos.
Flared at the ankle and fitted over the knees, there’s a pair of bootcut jeans for everyone out there because they look good on all body types. They create an illusion of curves on rectangular body types and make the legs look longer on women with a petite frame. Wear them to a date night, workplace, a casual brunch or a party, they will never disappoint you!
Here’s how to style these wide legged jeans with an equally stylish top:
Backless tops can come to your rescue when you want to look party-ready but also don’t want to put too much effort into it. Wear them with flared jeans and add an oomph factor to your overall outfit.
A buttoned denim worn on a denim gives the perfect cool girl vibes. Tuck the shirt in and pair with sleek pumps to glam up the outfit. Alternatively, wear with a pair of sneakers for some serious street style inspo.
How many likes for this stunning look? A long white shirt or a loose fit sleeveless top paired with blue flares makes you look ready for casual brunches and Friday night dinners.
Another great option for an evening party or date is pairing a layered silk blouse with bootcut bottoms. It looks irresistibly chic when worn with a statement neck piece and platform heels.
If there’s one pair of denim in this world that we just cannot live without, it’s THIS. Cool, casual and chic, distressed jeans are a no brainer when you want to look effortlessly fashionable. One important tip to remember when styling ripped jeans is to skip tops that are ripped or worn out. You don’t want to appear sloppy, do you?
Rock the cowboy look with ripped high waist jeans teamed with a classic leather moto jacket. Don’t forget your boots to up your cowboy style game.
Anything that’s cropped looked great with a high rise pair of denim. Whether it’s a cropped blouse, hoodie or a sweatshirt, you just can’t go wrong with the combination of a crop top with high waist jeans.
Wear your ripped jeans to a party by pairing it with an embellished or sequined bodysuit. Throw a furry jacket over it and you are all set to steal the show.
We love them for their polished look and statement making abilities. As the name suggests, straight leg jeans run straight in dimensions from the thighs to the ankles. Unlike skinny jeans, straight fit jeans do not taper at the ankle but have a fixed width. You can reinvent this wardrobe staple over and over again by pairing it with different tops.
Here’s how you can style them for all your off-duty avatars:
Button downs tucked in high waisted jeans can give your boring work outfit a smart casual makeover. Great for business events and lunches, this combination will undoubtedly up your fashion game at work.
A loud print like this screams for attention and a pair of straight leg high waist jeans is perfect to balance it out.
A basic tee in black or white fully tucked in the bottom looks simple yet classy. Adorn it with a statement chunky or vintage belt to finish the look.
Trends will come and go but high rise jeans will always stay in fashion because they are classic and timeless. They look great on everyone and can be worn all year round, regardless of the body type and the season. If you know the perfect fit for your body and the right way to style this ever-classic denim, high waist jeans can become your go-to pair of bottoms every day. All you need to style yourself properly is the right type of top with high waist jeans.
