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!
