High-waisted skinny jeans are about as universal as it gets. The high-rise waistline is flattering on, well, everyone. And skinny jeans are known for their comfort and stretchiness. Plus, they go with just about everything. So, we’ve rounded up the best high-waisted skinny jeans for all you skinny jeans lovers out there. 

Want more jeans recommendations? Well, that’s why we’re here. When you make a (free!) Revelle account, you’ll get access to an online jeans store full of jeans that were curated for YOU. Based on your body shape, jeans preferences, budget, and the brands you love.

Whether you’re into gen z’s baggy jeans trend or want to stick with the skinny jeans you know and love (we think there’s room for both in your closet!), we’re here to provide all the jeans recommendations you need.

Today, we’re covering our FAVORITE high-waisted skinny jeans: 

It doesn’t get much better than Levi’s high-waisted skinny jeans, does it? This best-selling pair is light-wash and lightly distressed. It’s also made with extremely stretchy denim, so you’ll feel extra comfy wearing them all day long.

This pair of Levi’s skinnies is one of our all-time favs (seriously… they’re the best high-waisted jeans ever). They come in a variety of washes and look great with everything. Might we recommend adding a blazer for the perfect work-to-happy-hour outfit?

We’re in love with these skinny, dark wash jeans from AGOLDE. The pinch waist will accentuate your hourglass figure (so flattering!). They’re slightly faded and have gunmetal hardware, which adds to their overall grunge vibe. They would pair perfectly with a graphic tee or a crop top and your favorite sneakers.

These jeans are classic to the max. They have a sleek, simple silhouette and high, flattering pockets. And for all the neutral lovers out there… this perfect pair comes in both a white and black wash.

These super high rise faded black jeans are unique because of their uneven frayed hem. Pair them with cute ankle boots to emphasize the hemline, add your favorite crop top (or swimwear top!), and you’re ready to go!

If you’re a petite woman (5’4” and under), we think you’ll love this slim-fit pair from NYDJ! Since they’re petite, the inseam is made for your proportions. Plus they’re capri-length (a type of crop jeans), so they’re a perfect warm-weather pair.

We’re convinced this pair of jeans has everything. They’re a classic mid-wash color, the legs are lightly distressed, and they have a built-in cuff at the bottom. Pair these with a flowy button-down and some sandals for a cute summer look!

If you love black jeans, this pair is for you. These skinny, ankle jeans are slightly cropped and ALL Black. Black wash, black stitching, and black metal accents. They have a similar look to jeggings, so pair them with your favorite tunic or oversized shirt for a relaxed fit.

True Religion Women's Jennie Curvy Skinny Fit High Rise Jeans

We LOVE Good American skinny jeans and this ultra high rise pair is no exception. They are sleek, classic, and have a flattering waistline. Plus, they’re made with stretch denim so they’re easy to move around in. Wear them to work, out with friends, or on a date night… Just change up your accessories!

Good American Raw Hem Skinny Jeans

If you’re always on the lookout for unique jeans, you’ll love this pair by Ramy Brook. It has copper button closures along the two front pockets, giving the pair an overall retro vibe.
