High-waisted bottoms have become a huge trend in the past few years, with pants, shorts and skirts. It’s a very flattering look for many body types since the top of the bottoms hit at the narrowest part of the waist.
My favorite go-to for the summer are high-waisted shorts. There are endless options, as far as looks, when you start with a pair of high-waisted shorts. They can be worn with a shirt tucked in or untucked, either cropped or not, or a shirt that is tied. All looks are equally cute, so just choose your favorite or try all three!
Let’s start with the tucked in look. Choose a tight-fitting tank or T-shirt to have a put-together look, or you can also tuck in a loose-fitting blouse, such as the Abbeline Sheer Boyfriend Tank from South Moon Under. This top also works perfectly for the tied option, so it serves a duel purpose.
For the untucked option, a shorter-cut shirt works best. It doesn’t necessarily have to be cropped, but cropped is very cute too! This crochet crop top from Nasty Gal works well. If this option shows too much skin for your liking then this sweet crop top has more coverage. Not to forget about the shorts themselves, a good basic pair is the Cooperative High-Rise Denim Shorts. These can be dressed up or down, making them very versatile.
So, next time you go to choose a cute summer look, base your outfit around a pair of high-waisted shorts. It’s a simple, but very trendy, fashion flashback from the '70s.
