Do you have to wear crop tops with/have your tops tucked into high waisted jeans? Can I just wear regular tops/jumpers that hang loose?
The reason I ask is because every single pair of jeans I have worn fall down on me, apart from high waisted ones. So these are the only type I can wear, but there is no way I can get away with tucking tops in because I have a (very) post baby-tummy and wide-ish hips so my midsection would look massive.
I just wear them with normal tops over them. Tend to avoid a belt though. They are great as the avoid a bum crack when sitting. And can get away with slightly shorter tops. Although I don't specifically pick shorter tops. My new amazing find has been he jasper conran high waisted jeans.
Withering tights my new jasper conran ones were from debenhams. I am in love with them. They were £50 but worth every penny as a wear them almost every day. My old jeans are now languishing in a drawer.
I've just got three pairs of high waisted jeans from Primark that have a slight stretch to them. They're wonderful and cover my bum when kneeling or crouching down with the kids. I'm quite long in the body and always have to wear a belt and a vest top tucked in to prevent flashing people. These are a revelation, I just wear them with my normal length tops and jumpers.
Thanks. Had a look at the Jasper Conran ones and they're currently on sale for £36. Levi's do some nice high waisted ones but at £90 a pair they're a bit expensive for crawling round on the floor at toddler groups! I also found some lovely ones in M&S of all places. Their Indigo collection ones sit just below my belly button and were a bargain at £22.50 each. They come in skinny, straight and boot cut, which is great for me as I look hideous in skinny jeans. Thanks all.
