We’ve already shared the magic of the $ 98 jeans that a stylist always suggests to celebs, but there’s a brand new shape that has been introduced in the past few years and it’s already a hit among stylish NYC viewers (and this one LA editor).
Aptly referred to as the ribcage style, the jeans feature the highest rise of any Levi’s to date – and at 12 1/8 inches, the rib cage-grazing waistline puts other high-waisted jeans to shame on the market. The name makes them a bit daunting, but when I put my pair on and buttoned them above my belly button, it immediately became apparent that these were the most flattering (and affordable!) Jeans I’ve ever donned.
According to Karyn Hillman, Global Chief Product Officer, they were designed to fit that way. “The authentic look of a ’90s Levi’s 501 with the modern stepped ramp is so flattering – perfectly styled, high or low,” she says. Now that the dark washed couple is a staple of my wardrobe (scroll down to see them) I can’t stop telling my friends to add them to their personal closets.
