Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know flare legs are the it-cut for spring—but where’s your waistline preference at the moment? Stylelist reports that the high rise waistline is happening in full force for spring, with a host of new products on the market to prove it. They make several good points as to why this is a good thing via 7 For All Mankind’s Mille Monferin, including balancing the flare leg silhoutte, hiding lower back abundance, and creating a longer, sexier leg line.
Check out the full review at Stylelist, and find out what the big names in denim (J Brand, Diesel, Pray for Mother Nature, and Blank NYC to name a few) feel about the newest wave in high-rise mania.

Chip Foster, one-half of the denim wonder twins, Chip & Pepper, is going solo with his new premium denim brand, Pray For Mother Nature. Inspired by a recent trip to Japan with his wife, Nicole, the couple will be designing the line together.
Launching in the fall and made entirely in Los Angeles of Japanese imported fabric, offered will be nine women’s styles. Not only will they have the basic five-pocket jeans, but more fashion forward silhouettes such as slouchy cuffed trousers, denim harem pants and a slim style stitched with seams running down the back. The jeans will retail from $158 to $198 and following the brands name, the line will donate a portion of sales to environmental charities.
Already in high demand by retailers are the Slick Rick, a five-pocket legging made of the superstretchy Japanese fabric, Who’s the Boss, motorcycle-inspired cargo pants that are sleek, slim and tight, and Action Jackson, tight center seam jeans.
