Would You Wear High-Waisted Jeans like Katie Holmes?

Remember back in 2008 when Katie Holmes started rocking rolled-up, baggy jeans in a look that even Tim Gunn didn’t get at the time? Well, her jeans have launched countless imitators and millions of women who wouldn’t give up their boyfriend jeans for any other style. Except, the Hollywood trendsetter has moved on with a new look — so will we all follow her lead again this time? The star hit the streets of New York City in ’70s-style high-waisted flares, with a plaid buttondown blouse tucked in securely with a rough-hewn brown leather belt. And we have to say, this style is a lot easier to comprehend on first viewing. Holmes looks not only totally city chic, but also like her legs are almost infinitely endless. And who doesn’t want that? The look has even already found ground in Hollywood with star supporters of high-waisted jeans like Kim Kardashian. Tell us: Would you wear high-waisted jeans like Katie Holmes?

NO! I think they look like mom jeans!

I LOVE them! They are classic and feminine, and can be “day” or “night” wear. I appreciate their simplicity and how they honour her figure. High-waist pants also look excellent on so many different shapes of “woman.” They eliminate the “muffin top” for those with hips and are perfect for camouflaging a bulgy mid-section (I am the first and following a yummy holiday, the second also). They make your waist look smaller than your hips, no matter how teeny or heavy the woman is, and that hour-glass figure will always be worshiped, no matter the generation. LOVE THEM!

Definitely! I love the vintage feel high-waisted jeans add to an outfit.

I guess I was ahead of the times – been wearing them again now for about a year! My teen daughter thinks they look very cool…

Kate and I got so much in common, not only we are born under the same star, but we share the same fashion trend. She always look effortlessly good. I have been ebaying and search for high wait jean, lucky enough I step into tk-maxx and grab a burberry high wait jean, it looks so good that I got so many compliments from people. You go Kate, look that jean on you

Yes, definately. We have had the lower that hip-hugger for 5 years now, it is time for a change.

Mom jeans – Those are absolutely the most uncomfortable and unflattering jeans on me, ever lol! I have very long legs, but I’m short wasted. I could not live without my low cut jeans. I’m 47.
