The Right Top for High-Waisted Pants
The new high-waisted pants are a great look, and if worn correctly, really slim and lengthen the body. However, they are a big change from the low-rise pants and jeans of recent years and they require a top with some specific qualities for the whole look to be perfect.
In high-waisted pants, your body is like one triangle inverted over another triangle, with the emphasis on your shoulder line, your waist and the flaring hem of the pants. Contrary to popular belief everyone can wear high-waisted style pants. The following looks show how to keep the focus where it should be to really rock this look.
1. Your top should fit close to the body and always be tucked in to the waistband.
2. Avoid billowy, droopy sleeves or too- low droopy necklines.
3. Keep the focus on your waist, shoulder and pants hem with whatever accessories and styling you choose. Up-dos, pony-tails, small earrings, bangle bracelets and cuffs, and a heel at least 2 inches high are ideal.
