Denim is the foundation of our fall wardrobes, and this year, the jeans we covet have a totally throwback vibe. 80s and 90s-inspired high rise jeans are back in a big way, and luckily for us, Levi’s has a lock on all the best high rise styles we could ask for, from skinny to straight to acid washed and cropped.
The coolest elements of high rise jeans: they hug and hold you in all the right places; make your legs look as long as a supermodel’s; and of course, how they make you look effortlessly chic, (just like all the fashion girls in your Insta feeds). Read on for our must-have high rise jeans from Levi’s, along with styling tips on how to wear vintage-inspired denim now.
Yes, they’re “mom jeans,” but these retro beauties are so much better than the ones mom wore, because they hug your waist and hips for a flattering fit. For an ‘80s-meets-‘90s feel, pair them with combat boots and a moto jacket, or for a sleeker look, go with pointed-toe booties and a ribbed knit turtleneck. Levi’s Mom Jeans in Beverly Hills, $118
These jeans are so flattering, we want them in ALL the washes. They’re snug through the hip and thigh, and the straight leg gives a long, lean look. Pair them with booties and a denim shirt to create a contemporary Canadian tuxedo vibe, or throw on some Dad sneakers and a sweatshirt for an old-school streetwear look.

These super high rise skinnies give you legs for days, and in an acid wash, they give you that 80’s feel with a sleek and modern silhouette. Add a streetwear edge with high-top sneakers or add some polish with a tucked-in top and slingback kitten-heels.
