THE RISE and RISE of HIGH WAISTED JEANS at METROPOLIS VINTAGE

HIGH WAISTED JEANS

You may call them “Mom Jeans”, but they’re one of our most popular items for girls of all ages!  Originating in the 1940’s as a way to keep the modern woman looking “modest” in a pair of jeans, the High Waisted Jean Craze really hit it’s peak in the 1980’s.  Nowadays, they’re back in action with a bit more versatility –  a reaction to the skintight low-risers of recent yore.  You might not have noticed that waistline creeping up on you, but these High Waisted Jeans are very flattering indeed, as evidenced by these shots of our favorite model, Ophelia. These pairs of High Waisted Jeans and many more are waiting for you at METROPOLIS VINTAGE.  Why not stop by and try some on?
