Extra-High-Waisted Jeans FAQs
What are extra-high-waisted jeans?
Extra-high-rise jeans extend above the usual waistline to create a slimming, leg-lengthening effect. Standard high-waisted jeans sit several inches above the belly button, and the extra-high-rise style sits above that.
Where a pair of extra-high-waisted jeans rest on your waistline will depend on the specific design.
What denim cuts do extra-high-waist jeans come in?
Our collection of extra-high-waist jeans includes all of your favorite denim cuts, from skinny to wide-leg styles.
Achieve a sleek silhouette with our slimmer styles. Skinny jeans and slim ankle jeans give you a close-to-the-body fit through your hips and knees down to your ankles.
For a more relaxed look, our tapered ankle and trouser pants flare slightly at the waist and fit loosely around the thighs. For an easy-going style that sits above the ankle, try our cropped, extra-high-waisted jeans.
In addition to classic denim cuts, our extra-high-waist jeans are available in our Everyday Soft Denim. Made from an innovative, highly stretchy, yet supple material, these jeans are made for movement and all-day comfort.
How do you style extra-high-waisted jeans?
Extra-high-rise jeans are made for everyday wear.
Cropped, extra-high-waisted jeans pair with a t-shirt or blouse for a look that’s relaxed yet still put-together. Wear a wide-leg style with a button-down for work and transition them to weekend attire by switching it out for a tank or bodysuit.
Tapered ankle pants are made for vacation when you tuck in a three-quarter-sleeve tee or casual tank top. Turn heads on a night out when you wear a pair of dark-wash or black, extra-high-waisted jeans and a blouse with stunning embroidered detailing. Or, wear them with a turtleneck and a moto jacket for a bold look.

What body type is extra-high-waisted jeans most flattering on?
While all extra-high-rise jeans feature this elevated and defined waistline, there are many ways this style can be executed, making them flattering on every figure.
Extra-high-waisted jeans are popular with those of a shorter stature because of their ability to lengthen the legs. However, they can also be worn by tall women who want to further dramatize and highlight their height.
The extra-high waist is especially flattering on women with a curvy figure, but they can also help draw the eye to the waistline and create dimension for those with straighter silhouettes.
No matter your body type, we’re confident extra-high-rise jeans will become a staple piece for everyday wear. Shop our entire selection of jeans to find your perfect pair.
