If you are looking for outfit inspiration for new, fun ways to style your high-waisted jeans, no matter whether they are light, mid, or dark wash, flared, straight-, or wide-leg, you are in the right place!

We have created this guide on what to wear with high-waisted jeans, with 6 gorgeous outfits that are perfect for the spring, summer, and fall months so you can style your high-waisted jeans for any season.

What To Wear With High-Waisted Jeans

1. Striped Button-Down Shirts

Pair your high-waisted jeans with a striped button-down shirt for a polished and stylish look. This look would work with any high-waisted jeans, although we do love the drama of these exaggerated wide-leg jeans, then you just need to tuck in any striped shirt. A darker color and slimmer fit would ensure a smarter look, while an oversized shirt, left unbuttoned at the neck gives a more relaxed, weekend look. Finish with heels and a top handle bag.

2. Chic Blazers

Blazers and high-waisted jeans are a classic combination that will never go out of style. Stick to straight-leg jeans in light or mid-wash, then style with a neutral sweater and a chic blazer over the top. A black blazer is a timeless option, but you could go for a pop of color or print for a more unique and striking look. Add sneakers and a black bag to complete the look.
