The high-waisted trend has been around since the 1940s and it will be around for quite some time, which I am ecstatic about! It is the ideal fashion tip to elongate your legs and accentuate your waist. High-waisted bottoms are also a solution to every girl’s dread: the muffin top. The key is to find bottoms that hit your natural waist and hug your hips. Who doesn’t want to look like a tall vintage-inspired beauty queen?
Here are some style tips of how to attain the classic and sophisticated high-waist style:
1. Make sure your high-waisted shorts are nice and snug, they will be unflattering on you if there is bunching of the fabric.
2. Cropped tops are ideal for the high-waist look because of how easy they tuck in. Tuck in your shirt if you want to pull off this look, but don’t pull the top out too much because this adds volume to your waist. Also, do not tuck in too much or else you will look stiff and uncomfortable.
3. Belts are a great addition to this look. Pick a skinny belt to draw attention to your high-waisted style, or to emphasize your upper body and cinch your waist, a wide belt is perfect!
4. Heels heels heels! These are the perfect final touch to this look because heels add to the elongated look of the legs.
Now you are ready to show off your vintage-inspired look?
Keeping warm when the days get chilly doesn’t mean skipping out on cute style. With the right pair of mittens, that perfect scarf, a chic little hat and a gorgeous coat, you’ll be toasty warm and perfectly trendy, no baggy, hooded sweatshirts required.
