High-rise denim has been lurking around for awhile now. I would look, turn away and wouldn't see them again for some time, not knowing when or where they would turn up. As with trends, one doesn't ever know if they'll stick. And, if they do stick, how long they will actually stay around for.
Then, it happened. I recently received a fashion editorial that called out this very topic, "The high-rise denim of your dreams," the headline called out. As I scrolled through the editorial, I took a sigh of relief - it wasn't the high-rise of yesteryear. Instead, it was a very modern, updated version. And yes, I used those words to describe high-rise denim. As I pondered this idea, I started to look at some high-rise styles available today. What I found was a hybrid high-rise denim. There was the high-rise + skinny jean combo. There was the high-rise + raw edge jean combo. There was the high-rise + destructed denim jean combo. There were a variety of high-rise combos on the market, which meant this trend was available to many more people, which I love to see.
Now, in case I have enticed you to try a re-envisioned high-rise style, let's talk a bit about your top.
Since you are going for the trend on the bottom, be sure you stay true to yourself on top. If you are often caught in a v-neck or vintage tee, keep that staple in place - just add the high-rise. On the other hand, if you are often seen in a button-down blouse, add it here. If you go with the latter, I'd recommend adding a fresh spin to the look by playing with your accessories, from your jewelry to your footwear - this will ensure the high-rise take is modern and not dated.
Of course, Adea offers some great tops to wear with your high-rise denim. Be sure to share with us your favorite Adea top to pair with your high-rise denim.

I just read an article that sounded – to me at least – like “a canary in a coal mine” or an early warning of danger. This piece, written by Joe Pompeo, appeared in the May 2020 issue of Vanity Fair magazine with the title “The British Tabloid Invasion” and a subtitle that read, “How the Daily Mail is conquering American gossip.”

Apparently the good old U.S. is a nation of “not great” sleepers. Really? And I thought I was the only one! According to a recent study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention it was revealed that one out of three Americans are chronically sleep-deprived. Yikes!

I think we’re all taken by the incredible mystique of the famous French fashion house, Hermès that has been with us for two centuries and is still owned and operated by the same family. From its beginnings in fine equestrian leather goods, they are – in the tumultuous year 2020 – best known for their handbags and many other items.
My image of Hermès has always been rarified products at equally rarified prices so imagine my surprise when I recently received a very stylish publication of theirs in the mail.
