Here’s how to wear the high-waist trend, from Glam Radar:
A popular trend that’s become a go-to style for fashion editors, celebrities, and street style stars, a high-waist trend is not only fashion-forward but also functional for concealing your problem areas and flaws. Looking for stylish ways to wear the trend without adding unwanted bulk to your bottoms? Keep on reading for stylish tricks on how make this fashionable trend work for your body type.
While high-rise jeans can be surprisingly flattering to many body shapes, many women find this denim style a hard one to pull off. This style of jeans look great with slender and pear shaped woman that can make those hips more proportioned and shapely. Since boyfriend jeans and flared jeans are typically height shortening, a high-waist style can make your jeans look more proportional to you. However, high-waist skinny jeans look more flattering and elongating that you may wish to go for. Choose a pair of cropped jeans if you have slim ankles, and match your jeans with shoes in a similar shade to visually lengthen legs.
To elongate your frame, you may go for a pair of high-waist denim skirt or cut-off shorts as showing more skin may help you look appear leaner and taller. Also, a higher rise of shorts and skirts can eliminate muffin top problems for an hourglass woman while holding in the tummy and showing off the small natural waist. Just look for a pair of casual shorts or skirt with a contoured waistband that’s higher in the back, to eliminate gapping at the waist.
A high-waist skirt, shorts, or pants are the perfect match for an abbreviated top, especially crop tops and bandeau tops. The higher waistband of your bottom piece reveals just a sliver of skin at the middle, making your crop top wearable no matter what body type you have. Just go for a skirt that hugs your curves without squeezing tightly enough to reveal any bumps. Also, you crop top should also be swingy and not too tight.
Looking for trendy ways to refresh your office outfits? Then go for a high-waist style on your trousers and skirts while keeping your hemlines modest and your tops decent. Patterned high-waist midi skirts look dressier when worn with plain knitted tops. Just dress p your office outfit with a structured bag, chic sunglasses, and a pair of black pumps perfect for a professional setting. Like fashion blogger Jessica Ricks, wear your high-waist midi skirt to work by pairing them with a crisp, white button-down shirt and classic accessories. You can also layer on a printed blazer or cardigan to make your high waist dress pants work for meetings and presentations like Mary Orton did.
Go for a party-ready look like Jessica Ricks by wearing a metallic silver matching set of a crop top and pencil skirt. If you think the outfit is too flashy for you, then go for a pair of sequin shorts and dress it down with a chic blazer and chambray shirt like Annabelle Fleur did. Going for a leather skirt or even a lace skirt in festive colors of red, burgundy, green, metallic gold, and silver will also glam up your look instantly.
Create a trendy and casual everyday look with high-waist skirts, shorts, and trousers that will take you from running errands to brunch with friends. Just make your trendy outfit look casual by going for a pair of comfy heels, chunky boots, slip-on sandals, or even ballet flats that will still keep your style look chic without compromising comfort.
