Here's my solution. I bought a pair of high-waisted bell bottom pants at Old Navy a couple of years ago. I outgrew this look, so I decided to transfer the high waist onto my low waist pants.

I then attached the high waist to the low-waisted pants and voila!
|My new high-waist skinny jeans|
|Looks great with a top over it. Will try to see what it looks like with a cropped top.|
These are super comfortable, I love them! If you don't have a high waist part, you can also band the top of your low-waisted jeans with stretchy material but you would have to cut the zipper out too. However, if not done right, it could look too much like maternity pants. But I will try this method and report back.
Let me know what you think!
