So lockdown is set to become a thing of the past in a matter of months. And thus we must resume dressing for public life – bottom halves and all. But this is a task that might be as daunting as it is exciting. Many of us have become so accustomed to dressing for comfort that flattering clothes are now alien objects. We’ve barely acknowledged shoes unless they were specifically designed for long walks (or happen to be slippers). And – if we’ve bothered wearing any at all – comfortable underwear has been the only kind of underwear that has made sense. That’s a lot to undo by June, so where do we begin? Wardrobe essentials.
Jeans in general have long been cited as a wardrobe essential, but the most flattering ones are black high-waisted jeans. Here are some of the best for all budgets and occasions.
The date is 21/6/21 and you are wearing these 7 For All Mankind jeans with a nice top. You hug your friends hello before jostling for attention at the bar. Life has begun again.
When – and whether or not – you return to the office will depend on individual company policy, but it’s worth being prepared for that eventuality whatever happens. And so you must invest in these Paige jeans.
No denim brand does nonchalance quite as well as RE/DONE, but we don’t think you’ll be able to hide your glee at these once you put them on. Wear them anywhere to anything and feel instantly confident.
There’s something about these Acne Studios jeans that seems permanent. They’re at their best now, but they’ll be even better in the future. And that’s something we’re very excited about. Here’s to being committed to a pair of black high-waisted jeans. Who knew it could happen to us.
We know that black high-waisted jeans are flattering, but are they comfortable? Yes, if Weekday has anything to do with it.

Apparently skinny jeans are no longer cool, but fortunately we’re too old to care what teenagers think of us. The attention you have craved throughout lockdown will be yours at last in a pair of these by Ksubi.
