Some of us remember the last time high waist trousers were in style – I have pictures of my sisters and me in the early 80’s, with billowy high waist-ers. As with every trend, they come around, although there’s nothing I wore in the early 80’s that I want to wear today : >
Would you wear high waist trousers? I can attest they are more comfortable than low-riders, and they do eliminate the bit of my fluff that hangs over the waistband. And you can definitely bend over without any fear of visible thong. I like my high waists loose-cut and a bit cropped. But there are several ways to go, as shown below:
For the office or date nights– these high waist trousers are a little dressy, in classic black and with a couple of discreet pleats (not the 80’s style!) The gathered hemline is a modern touch, although you certainly go with a traditional hem. These look fab with a heel.
A paper bag waist and self-belt create a casual mood. These are more trendy than the black pair above, and more of a vintage throwback, but I like them for a change from my skinnies. Heels look fine with these pants too, but I like an oxford or dressy sneaker to keep it loose.
And you don’t have to be size 6 to enjoy a high-waisted jean: I think curvy women look fab in this style.
Dark denim works well too with a high waist jean. These have an edgy fringed hem that may not be your thing. I do love the whole easy look, especially with a simple sweater-tee.
For me: I grabbed these high waisters at the thrift. They only work with a tucked-in top, and they are oversized. And you can see how much fun I am having wearing them.
