High-waisted pants were all over the streets of Paris last week, both on the Paris Fashion Week runways and off. It seems like one of those trends that tries to make a comeback every couple of years and never quite makes it.
Part of the challenge is you really need a specific body shape to pull off this look (remember the unfortunate photos of Jessica Simpson in high waist jeans). If you’re tall and lean with a long waist, this style is exceptionally flattering. If you have a shorter torso, the proportions of a high waist pant will be all off.
Pair a high-waisted pant with a form fitting top that highlights the waist of the pant. Add a jacket that hits longer than the waist of the pant so that it doesn’t compete for attention and visually cut your body in half.
So I ask – Yea or Nay?
