From Amal Alamuddin iconic white separates to Xenia’s trademark pencil skirts to Taylor Swift’s shorts or Barbara Martelo’s bottom pieces: high waisted never looked so sophisticated before.
Choose this shape to make your legs look longer and if you want to show off your wasp waist ; add shoes in matching color or nude to visually elongate even more. Accentuate with a high belt or buttons or zips to draw attention to the area. High waisted pieces are very versatile and go well both for casual or formal outfits, with denim, leather, stretched pants or trousers with pinces. Be active and keep your abs toned for a perfect result – here’s our selection of some of the best looks.
It’s almost summer – we can’t resist this comfy and young style, fit for any casual moment.
