Shirt: Club Monaco/ Jeans: J Crew (snagged these for much less in-store last season)/ Shoes: Frye/ Sunglasses: Ray-Ban

Let’s go ahead and address the elephant in the room: These are high-waist skinny jeans in a light wash. Now, I hate a mom jean as much as the next reasonable person, so I assure you these are not 2012’s version of the mom jean. The higher rise coupled with a slightly thicker denim with a bit of stretch is extremely slimming – no muffin top… Another beignet? Yes, please! – and the superskinny leg creates a long, lean silhouette.
