Trend Alert: High Waist Bottoms

It started with the “mom jeans,” the total antithesis of hip-huggers which were my go-to jeans in my teen years. At first, it took a while for mom jeans to grow on me, however, designers have really perfected the high-waist style to create a clean, crisp look. What I love about high-waisted shorts, jeans, and skirts is:
1. They accentuate your curves in the right places and keep everything into place. There is nothing falling out in the wrong places so they are super flattering.

2. I love crop tops! But I just had a babe so… high-waisted pants are the perfect solution if you want to where those adorable crop tops without showing a lot of tummy. Problem solved!

3. They elongate your legs. I am only 5’2 so I need all the help I can get. If you tuck in your shirt or pull off a crop top, the extra fabric that shows gives the illusion of longer, leaner legs. I’m sold!

Crushing on Crop Tops

The beauty of a crop top is it is not the 90’s belly shirt.. you don’t necessarily have to have a flat tummy to rock one.
Choose the right bottoms such as high-waist shorts or a flare skirt and anyone can rock a crop top. Contrary to what people may think, crop tops are actually very flattering on many body types because it bring attention to the ribcage, below the breasts and above the waists, which is usually the thinnest part of women’s (curvy or not!) bodies.
Have you rocked a crop top this summer?
