The Power of High waist…

They hide love handles and belly bulges. They keep shirts properly tucked-in. Best of all, they don’t give you a muffin top. (Church say hallelujah!!).

Trends come and go— but high waisted bottoms have been a classic wardrobe staple for me. This style gives you a well-balanced silhouette, making them ultra-flattering on just about everyone (so my fluffy sisters need not worry)

I compiled different high waisted looks including skirts, shorts and pants to discover how to wear an d style high waisted outfits for any body type.

Wear with a Tucked-In Top

What’s the point of wearing high waisted pants if you’re only going to be covering them with an untucked top? The good thing is, almost any style works. Plaid lumberjack shirts, long-sleeve tops, or your favorite tee — go ahead and tuck them into high waisted bottoms.

Wear Smart not Overly Blousy Tops

High waisted pants especially flared ones have volume and provide lots of coverage, and a blousy top made of a lot of fabric will compete with that. Pair with a streamlined top that isn’t all over the place. The idea is for you to look slimmer and not top heavy or worse frumpy.

Wear with Crop Tops

In my opinion, crop tops are made for high-waist pants. They give that balance since most of your stomach is covered. Your midriff is the only part of your middle region showing. However, if you aren’t comfortable showing skin, wear something that covers up.

Wear the Right Accessories

This cannot be over emphasized. Accessories make or mar a look. Pick the right belt or shoes to wear with your look. Sometimes, less is more!! I always prefer heels as it gives the illusion of longer and more toned legs.

Style tip: Avoid high waisted bottoms that sit under the bra line. This cut is very unflattering as it draws the eye too much to the stomach which can be very uncomfortable for you.

Finally, like most things in fashion, high waisted bottoms look infinitely better when they are in your correct size. Take your time, find the correct silhouette for your frame.
