There’s nothing better than hitting the jackpot when it comes to a pair of denim. I’d spent months searching for a flattering pair of high-waisted jeans, but kept coming back empty handed. There seemed to be an abundance of promising options when scrolling through Pinterest or flipping through the pages of my favorite fashion magazines, but every time I’d track down what I thought would be the perfect pair, I’d soon discover they didn’t work for me. I was convinced I was the problem – that there was something about my figure or proportions that wasn’t conducive to the style. And even if the fit was satisfactory, the fade was often wrong, the crop too short, the material too thin and stretchy, or worse, too stiff. And when I could check all of the above off, I’d often find that the backside had awkward pocket placements, which has the ability to make or break their flattering potential. I’d nearly given up on my search, but I’m so glad I didn’t, because lo and behold, new-to-me brand, L’Agence, had the “goldilocks pair” of high-waisted denim that I’d been looking for all along. In addition to meeting all of my aesthetic requirements, they’re extremely comfortable. I’ve been styling these with just about everything, but they really shine when paired with a more fitted tucked in shirt or bodysuit like I’m wearing here. I have no shame in being a repeat outfit offender when it comes to these, so this certainly won’t be the last time they’ll make an appearance.
