High Waisted Jeans with a crop top is a great go-to look this summer–not only is it stylish, but comfortable too. High Waisted jeans were THE look of the 1990’s, especially when paired with a crop top. In reality, high waisted denim first became popular in the 1940s, and flared high rise jeans an IT item in the 1970s. No matter what decade, high waisted jeans will always be a timeless piece in your closet!
Check out five different crop top and high waisted denim looks that you could be rocking this summer!
1. Wear Stripes With a Sweater Tied Around Your Waist
Selena Gomez put together a casual sporty look for a day out in LA. She chose a striped red and white crop top, pairing it with high waisted boyfriend jeans, white tennis shoes and a sweater around the waist. The crop top is very fitted, but balanced out by the loose style of jeans and the choice of sneakers. I love the sweater around the waist–its very 90’s chic and perfect to wear for those cool nights.
2. Add a Belt and Ankle Boots
Blogger Jazzabelle Rocks wears her high waisted denim with a belt, loose crop top and ankle boots. Each piece is simple but put together it looks so effortlessly cool. She kept the colors to black and the light wash denim–the perfect combo. The ankle boots really grunge up the outfit and the belt detail finishes the look.
3. Pair With Heels and a Fitted Top
Ariana Grande chose dark-wash high waisted jeans and a fitted crop top and black heels. This is a easy look to put together when you’re in a rush and want to look cute. The crop top is super simple but adding the high waisted jeans makes the outfit very chic. The heels give a nice fancy touch to the overall look, which allow the look to be worn both day and night.
4. Choose a White Loose Fitted Long Sleeve Crop Top and Add a Pop of Color
Kylie Jenner wore light wash denim with a loose-fitted white long sleeve crop top blouse and lace up heels. The pink handbag adds a great pop of color to an overall simple look. While hers is a mini Saint Laurent bag, any color or any bag would be perfect for this look, as long as it’s in a bright color.
5. Add a Cropped Sweater With Flared Denim
Emma Roberts decided to wear flared high waisted denim with a mustard colored cropped sweater and leopard print heels. She added a tan belt as well as a gold handbag. This is such a refreshing take on high waisted denim because of the flared bottoms. I love the 1970s inspired denim she chose, as well as pairing it with animal print heels and a fun colored sweater. This look is great for night outs or a date–it’s casual but so effortless stylish too.
