Whether you like this trend or not, high-waisted pants are making a comeback. We’ve seen celebrities like Kim Kardashian and the Olsen twins as the most popular high-waisted wearers this season. The secret about high waist pants is that they’re not ‘high-waisted’ at all. So that’s a weight off your shoulders.
They’re only slightly higher than what we’re used to, but they sit at your natural waistline. You might automatically think of high-waisted jeans, but they’re not the only option out there. This trend comes in all sorts — from high-waisted shorts and skirts to trousers. We’ve put together a selection of different ways you can style your very own pair. Are you brave enough to give it a try?
