High Rise Vintage Slim Jeans

Without a doubt one of the most hotly debated topics in fashion is whether skinny jeans are in or out. Brooke Shields might have said nothing could get between her and her Calvins but apparently no one is going to pry skinny jeans out of anyone’s hands anytime soon. So there’s that.

Today I give you an alternative to the skinny jeans you seem to love: high rise vintage slim jeans! This is my second pair, the first I featured last week. I sized down one in this pair and really like the look, I think this might be an alternative to you if you are looking to update your denim.

High Rise Vintage Slim Jeans

While the point of my post is most certainly not to talk you out of wearing skinny jeans I think I would be remiss if I didn’t at least ponder why it is they’re so beloved. It might just be my opinion only, I get the feeling, at least in part, that since our society is so thin driven we like anything that highlights the smallest part(s) of our bodies. After all, we were taught to highlight the positive and eliminate the negative, right? But does it really serve us well to consider parts of our bodies as negative? That’s a whole other conversation for another time!

Personally, I like the high rise vintage slim jeans. I think they are flattering and can be worn in almost any instance that you’d normally go for a skinny jean. The only exception? Tucked into a tall boot. I haven’t tried it but would guess a skinny jean would work better.

My Latest Pair

My latest pair was ordered on a whim from Gap. I really liked the faux leather beachwood beige pair I bought and decided to try the blue denim. Now I am considering getting them in black. I have a problem. Clearly.

How They Fit

I decided to order a size down and get the short inseam this time. That decision was made after spending $20 to get the faux leather pair hemmed! Money well spent but had I ordered the shorter inseam to begin with…anyway, here’s a rear view. Not much to see, I have zero rear end so don’t expect miracles here. But (pun intended) you can see pocket placement!

Here’s what Gap says about these jeans: Our new take on the classic Cigarette Jean. It’s giving throwback vibes with curve-hugging perfection — and it looks good on everyone.

  • Fit: A slim, ankle-length classic. More room than our True Skinny, but just as comfortable.
  • Fabric: 89% Cotton, 10% Recycled Materials, 1% Stretch.
  • Stretch: Stretch Jeans. A bit of hug & a lot of hold. Comfortable & designed to flatter.
  • Rise: High Rise Jeans.
  • Look: A classic five-pocket jean in a medium indigo wash.
  • Details: Zip fly, five-pocket styling & holds-you-in front pockets.

They fit similarly to my Good American jeans but are almost half the price. They are also a lighter weight which means I can wear them longer. I’m excited about wearing these now and well into spring and a bit of summer. I’ll be honest, it’s too hot here in FL for jeans most days.

What do you think? Are you ready to try a high rise vintage slim jean? I’d love to know!
