The high-waisted trouser is a tricky garment to pull off, it can be unforgiving for some body types. It can either make your backside look even flatter (if you don’t have one) or emphasize your derriere if you have wide hips. There is however one distinct advantage to this trend, it eliminates the unsightly ‘muffin-top’. The modern day phenomena created by the popularity of low-rise pants this past decade. With the right fit, cut and fabric, the high-waisted pant can elongate your legs and accentuate your womanly curves. Just tread with caution when it comes to high-waisted denim, it can route you to ‘mom-jeans’ territory faster than you can say Jessica Simpson.
The subject of today’s post has successfully worked two trends; the high-waisted pant and block colouring. I love how she has contrasted her textures with the vintage mohair cardigan, sheer blouse and linen pants. Also, her choice of a brightly coloured trouser gives her vintage look a modern edge.
