Dear Que, I love experimenting with new styles and trends. On my last shopping spree, I got myself a pair of high-waisted jeans - a style that I've never worn before. Once I tried them on though, I wondered why it took me so long to get my hands on  these jeans. I absolutely love the fit and how it accentuates my waist. However, I'm having trouble styling them. Should I pair them with a T-shirt or with a blouse? Would a pair of wedges go well with this style? I can't wait to put together an outfit. Please help me out with a few style tips! —Denim Lover   Dear Denim Lover, We agree! High-waisted jeans are one of the best denim styles out there. From flattering your problem areas (read: your hips and love handles) to elongating your legs, a pair of high-waisted jeans are all you really need to look good. That being said, knowing what to wear with a pair of high-waisted jeans is the key to pulling it off in style. Choose pieces like a tank top and a long jacket that will offer length, or a slim-fit crop top, which will show off your waist to advantage. Here are some easy-to-replicate looks from international street style stars.

A button down shirt + a blazer + high-waisted jeans + heeled boots

When in doubt, pick your favourite button down shirt and tuck it into your high-waist jeans. Layer with a blazer and step into a pair of heeled boots for a stylish look.
