STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: High-Waist It and Crop It

This cropped striped denim jacket is what made me stop this Fashionista for a second look. Along with the jacket, she was wearing a white cropped T-shirt, high waisted leggings and a pair of sandals. I loved the way she wore two trends so nicely: high-waisted bottoms and cropped tops.

At first, I admit, I was a bit wary of the high-waisted pants trend; high-waisted pants reminded me of mom jeans. I thought this trend was one that we should have never revisited from fashion history. Then, as it became more popular, I started to embrace this trend for a number of reasons. First of all, they make your legs look longer, which is a major plus for short people like myself. Second, they look great with the cropped top trend that has been happening for a while (now, you can put all of those crop tops to more use!). So, I finally realized and admitted that high-waisted pants looked great when worn correctly.

The most important thing about high-waisted bottoms is the fit. You don’t want something too loose or that sits on your waist way too high. You can wear high-waisted pants or shorts in a variety of ways. Like I expressed before, cropped tops are a great item to wear them with. They allow the pants to be completely shown and together create a great contrast between long and short. To top off the look, you could wear a cropped jacket with the ensemble like this Fashionista did, or dress it up and wear it with a blazer. I definitely think high-waisted bottoms are a must-have item this season. So when in doubt, high-waist it and crop it!
