Here’s How to Wear This Season’s High-Waisted Pants
And not look like “That 70s Show”
After years of wearing low-slung jeans, the high-waisted pant is peaking. Yay: No more exposed swatches of skin when we bend over. No more muffin top--high-waisted pants act like Spanx in the way they hold you in). But styling can be tricky. Here’s 6 tips to help you style high-waisted pants.
Tuck in a Fancy Blouse
Want a newsy look that’s work-appropriate? Pair a silky or lacy blouse with high-waisted cropped pants for a look that’s elegant, versatile and way comfy.
Yes, we know, these cropped, wide-legged pants seem like a strange shape. They?re sort of like a skirt and sort of like a pair of slacks--but not wholly either. That?s why they?re great. They aren?t as heavy or hot as long trousers, but you?re not going to freeze in AC when you?re wearing them either. Pair leaner shapes with a silk crop top, while really full examples look best with skinny little knit tee or tank.
Match Billowing Pants with a Snug Top
Super-wide-leg trousers, often with a self tie belt, are a great throwback 1940s look. Undercut their ladylike-ness by wearing them with creepers or fashion tennis shoes. And by all means, wear these with a fitted top.
