Green Nights

November 8, 2014

High-waisted shorts are an old trend from the 80's made popular again today. As someone with giant hips like me, it's a relief that they have re-emerged and have been named as one of the biggest trends again this year. I firmly believe that they should never, ever leave the scene again.....
High-waisted bottoms not only appeal to women of all ages, but also to women of all shapes. The beauty of this trend is that it can mask many possible flaws. Now who wouldn't want that? For petite women, it can elongate your legs and make you look taller and for plus-sized women, high-waisted shorts are beneficial since these shorts have loose cuts on the thigh part which flatters those who are wide-legged as opposed to a fitted cut hence, these are also perfect for them. 
High-waisted bottoms can be matched in many ways. I chose to pair it up with a flirty yet feminine blouse for a casual-dressy look perfect for night-outs. Keep in mind to balance the color scheme for a well-put together look. Adding more color for the top will certainly make it look dressier if your shorts are in neutral color. Since the waistline is the focus, you'll want to add balance to the rest of the outfit by adding pieces of accessories such as necklaces and bangles. 

Don't forget to always aim for height. Though flats may always feel comfortable most of the time, high-waisted pieces are meant for footwear that adds height. What better way there is to maximize its ability to elongate our legs than to wear the perfect heels to achieve that modelesque stature!
