High Waisted, Raw Hem Jeans Outfit

I love playing the game of balance using smart and casual items. For this look, I opted for a crisp white shirt, and a midi heel to take the jeans from casual to smart casual. I also love accentuating my waist by tucking in my shirt and opting for high waist jeans.


I love a good pair of jeans, but finding one is always like Mission Impossible because I have quite a small waist! (Hey, Tom Cruise, I am ready for Mission Impossible 7!). Often times, the jeans with the right waist measurements, do not go past the blessing behind me aka my bum. However, over the last few years, I have found that Topshop, Asos and Miss Selfridges sizes work great for my body.

Raw Hem Jeans Style Tip

For me cropped jeans equals ankles on display. Therefore I prefer to style them with a midi heel pump, kitten heel or even a mule to give my ankles their proper due.
