High-waisted jeans. Making a comeback...?
Back in the 1980’s they were typically worn by middle-aged moms as their everyday uniform. Today's high-waisted pants are not considered "mom jeans" any more....fashionista’s and trend setters are calling them a breath of fresh air after the extreme low-rise trend of the past decade. But guess what, did you know that the high-waisted pants are actually not "high-waisted" at all. They hit at your natural waist. Some famous high-waisters are Kim Kardashian, Jessica Alba & the Olson twins. You got the style balls to give them a try?
As you conduct your usual retail therapy this weekend, you will notice trousers, straight-legs, skinny jeans and wide-leg jeans, all with high waists. The high rise is elongating and more forgiving than they used to be. But they are not universally flattering to most body types. If you don’t round out nicely in the derriere area, you'll probably discover that high-waisted pants kind of flattens the curve of your backside. If you have slightly curvier, wider hips, high-waisted pants might emphasize them more than you like. Although it does the trick to eliminate the dreaded "muffin-top" effect created by low-rise jeans. If your belly's even slightly lumpy, the pants will probably bulge at a pretty unattractive spot, so wear it with your Spanx. High-waisters work best with the popular cropped or fitted, tucked-in tops. I like it how its styled both below with a partial tuck and still cover the back flaws and the slight crop sweater, careful not showing too much skin.
