High waisted jeans

Looking on pintrest, all the style of jeans I like are ankle grazing, very fitted (but not skinny) and have quite a high waist, allowing you to comfortably tuck in tops.

Any ideas where I might find something like this? I'm 10/12 on bottom half and 5ft 9.

I'll try to link images...

It's probably not helpful but I bought something similar in the bhs closing down sale last week.

ASOS Ridley jeans I recently discovered these and they have a lot of different colours .

Cotton traders used to do them too but I've not looked at their clothes for years

I give up on links! Basically something with no 'distressing' on it and something that will wear well with my constant bending/stretching with little ones. Trying to go for that Parisian chic style (yes, with small children-hah)!

Jeans 'droit' is what you'll be looking for I guess, which are just 'straight' jeans though ime the French cut them slightly differently (more fitted, less unisex). Comptoir des Cotonniers have a few and I always find the fit v. flattering but I'm shorter than you, don't know if they're high waisted enough though. I tend to avoid those as it makes my ass look awful. You can fit a top in them though and I do think they have a few high waisted models available too.

Most Parisian women buy their jeans at Uniqlo btw, however, I can't seem to find the high waisted and straight models on the UK website, they're on the EU one though.

Botemp- thank you! Off to explore those suggestions...

I like Topshop Joni jeans, not sure if they're too tight fit for you but they are nicely high waisted which keeps everything tucked in

I'm 10/12, 5'8" (but longer body, I usually take a 32" inside leg) and find these COS jeans are the most flattering cut I've tried on me Cos jeans

I have Topshop Joni (charity shop find) but much longer and tighter than what I'm after.

Like the look of Cos but £6 delivery! That's quite expendive to just try on a pair of jeans!

Uniqlo (at least on UK site) all look either skinny or very loose boyfriend cut.

Have you tried Topshop Jamie? There's a variety of lengths, they have stretch but not as superskinny as Joni's.

Sugarandsalt Sat 27-Aug-16 09:29:34

I have these and love them but I'm not sure if they are too cropped for your liking.

Methenyouplus4 Sat 27-Aug-16 16:21:25

Sugarand- I really like the whistles ones but don't want any 'distressing' (fraying/worn patches etc).

Boden super skinny.... They are my perfect high waist, ankle skimming jeans. Not super skinny, just right....

Try esprit so many styles if these don't suit.

Methenyouplus4 Sat 27-Aug-16 18:57:08

Mama- I have those! I love length and lack of distressing but I want some that sit just below my belly button whereas they sit just above my hip bone (might be a height thing, I'm quite tall).

Try Levi's - you can search by rise, mid or high rise - I have these and love them

I have these relaxed skinny jeans and they are brilliant.
