I think I have mentioned going for the high-waisted jeans a couple of times in a very tentative manner. It seems that my restless nature in fashion also extends to denim even though I don't wear a lot of it. No, it's not one of those mindless declarations such as 'OH MY GOD, I'M SO OVER skinny. High waisted is so hot right now!.' It does help that high waisted jeans are more available and seeing these new Diesel ads, as well as being intrigued by their 'Superficial Global Warming' concept, I am rather bowled over by the jeans. I'm sure twenty comments of 'God NO!' will appear but they look sleek and though the white stitching is a little off putting, I like the definition and shape it alludes to. But, and it's a whooping big but(t), there is the slightly teensy issue with the bod (see what I did there with the 'but/t' - clever eh?). I'm not usually one to do the 'Bleurgh....I can't wear that because of my fat thighs/butt/arms' routine. It's not that I think I have a superfine body (on the contrary....) but quite simply, it's not at the forefront of my thoughts when I buy something because I'm usually impulsively/instinctively drawn to clothes. Well, with these jeans, some thoughts about the bod can't be avoided really. To some extent (and you can take from that what you will), the pre-requisite for them to work are long slim legs, a pert but not too big butt, teensy tiny waist and height in general. With regards to my bod, I must say I'd have to add a big fat 'ISH' onto all those parts (emphasis on the ISH). Therefore, I may have to very reluctantly just stare at the ad and wish all the girls who can wear them perfectly all the best wishes in the world. May you concoct some kickass outfits with your high waisted jeans. Go forth to Diesel, my tall, lithe gazelles!
