High waisted styles are on a rise. These bottoms, as the name suggests are meant to sit higher on your waist on the natural waistline, where they look most flattering. They accentuate your torso while giving the illusion of a tall, slender silhouette. With your legs starting higher up on the body, they work to lengthen your legs and your entire body.
Check out these stylish ways in which you can style your high rise denim/trousers.
1. Wear With A Tucked In Top
Wear your high rise bottom with a neatly tucked in shirt or a casual t-shirt. They keep shirts properly tucked-in and work well to hide your love handles or front flabs.
A plaid shirt and ankle boots give high-waisted jeans a grungy, cool feel. A pretty patterned shirt with a statement necklace makes for a fancier outfit that’s perfect for going out.
Tuck in a fancy blouse into a high waisted jeans and pair with chunky heels to create a stylish outfit. Cinch in your waist with a chic belt.
2. Denim On Denim
Wear your high waisted jeans with a lighter wash denim shirt to create your denim on denim look. Either tuck your shirt full or just front tuck it for a casual, breezy look.
You can pair them with sneakers or loafers for a daytime look. Skinny high-waist jeans look good with flats while looser flared styles are better matched with wedges and heels.
You can try some light layering with a denim vest over a tank top or add some structure with a denim jacket. Brighten up your look with a pop of red with your lipstick and wear heels for a night out. Accessorise with a long chain pendant.
3. Wear It With A Cropped Top Or Sweater
Crop tops are made for high waisted bottoms. Wear wide-leg high-waisted jeans and a loose, more flowy crop top for a ’70s vibe. The cropped cut will balance out the excess volume.
You can wear a blazer or an oversized jacket over your high rise pants to transform your summer crop top into a winter wear. Cropped sweaters also look really adorable with high-waisted jeans. Don’t forget to dress it up with heels.
However, avoid short bulky jackets. They create a boxy shape and make the waist look wider.
4. High Rise Shorts
The easiest way to wear high-waisted shorts is to pair them with a crop tank top and flat sandals. Long, light kimonos are huge right now. Wear yours over a crop top and denim high-waisted shorts.
You can go for a boho look with a loose tank top and super long sweater for a cooler weather. Make a striped high-waisted shorts appropriate for work by tucking in a button-up blouse and throwing on a fitted blazer.
Another way to wear the high waisted shorts trend is to go for a dressier look by pairing your high rise shorts with heels to feel extra elegant. Finish with a clutch and statement accessories.
5. Wear With A Corset Top
A corset top looks very cute and retro with dark high-waisted jeans. Play with proportions and wear a satin corset with an oversized gingham shirt and black high waisted jeans. Make a corset top more casual by wearing them with denim high-waisted shorts. You can even try something daring like a hot steel boned corset.
You can also turn a corset into an office look with the right balance of polished items like office-appropriate trousers and minimal accessories. Opt for a slimming black corset top with high-rise trousers and add a blazer and heels or wedges for a more professional look.
6. Keep It Wide And Flowy
Choose a high waisted pant in a flowy fabric to give it a chic look. Pair fluid high waist trousers with a button down for an office look or a silk camisole for a date night. Finish your look with a pair of strappy heels or sandals.
Pair a white high waisted trouser with a white blouse or any top of a neutral colour. Add a floppy summer hat for an easy vacation look that works as an after beach look too.
Wear a super wide-leg, loose, flowing pants with a lace shirt for a pretty, feminine look or pair them with a nude blouse for a ridiculously comfy summer outfit.
