Trend Report: The High Waisted Pants and How to Wear Them

440 440 Velvet

Long gone are the days were skinny jeans with a low waist owned the streets and ruled the fashion world. Now, it’s all about high waisted pants and shorts with an attitude and that includes palazzo and paperbag pants. No matter what style you choose – you got to wear them with an attitude! Therefore, in this post (sorry for the small delay), you’ll find the right imagery for inspiration, plus three different combinations that nail this trend!

High waisted pants flatter the waist and turn it into a focal point. Their more loose fit calls out for sexy, flirty tops. Therefore, Bardot tops, shirts, Breton tees, stapless and/or cropped tops are ideal. Forget about long oversized tees or sweats. Show off that waist of yours. As always, don’t forget to add your very own personal touch by using accessories along with the right outwear, shoes, and bag. Raincoats, suit jackets and light weight puffer jackets are ideal. By the way, in case you haven’t noticed raincoats look like they’re going to be the next big thing for FW18. So do watch out for those. 😉
