    1. Ruisin jeans are made of thick denim that'll fit perfectly snug in the hips but still have that overall vintage feel. You can wear these with anything!

    Brittaney Trent / BuzzFeed, Amazon

    I absolutely love these jeans! I'm always trying to find a good pair of high-waist jeans without breaking the bank. Especially ones like these because they have a vintage vibe and feel. I always have a hard time getting the right size when it comes to Levi's and I end up having to return them or the style isn't quite what I'm looking for, so these were a great find. I love how these fit in the hips but also have a tapered leg. I'm wearing a size 24 x 32L and they actually go all the way down to my ankles (although they're rolled up in the picture) which is a struggle for me since I'm so tall. But make sure to check the size chart before buying!

    Ruisin jeans are available in women's straight sizes but I actually had to send the first pair back and go a size smaller.
