Recreate the Craze: The High Waist Trend
High waist jeans were created during the 40s by Levi Straus for women who began working during the war. You can see why these jeans became such a popular commodity for working women, you could bend, lean and reach without any chance of mid-riff escaping. The high rise then expanded into being used for fashionable means as the jeans had a way of hugging and flattering the figure.
High waist jeans still have the same appeal, such as pulling in the stomach and embracing the curves building an hour glass shape. The only difference between the high waist jeans of the 40s and 50s and the high waist jeans of now is fabric and color.
