Hot Or Not: High-Waisted Jeans

Word on the street is that 2011 will be the year that high waisted jeans make a comeback and I want to know what you think…


If we all looked like the model in the picture above, I would be all over this trend.  There’s something so put together about this look that is cute without any stuffiness.

But you may all remember the Jessica Simpson debacle of 2009, proving that even thin women can look extra-heavy in pants like this.

I’m torn… I don’t want to say this trend is a don’t, but unless I lose 20 pounds, there’s no way I can pull it off… what are your thoughts?


How do you feel about high-waisted jeans making a comeback?  Are you a fan, or should this one be left to the models?  What kind of tops would you pair with high-waisted jeans? Let’s discuss in the comments!

    Agreed. I think it may only work for skinny minnies. As for a top? I’m thinking you would have to go all out retro with the look, pairing it with a billowy silk blouse with a bow tie, or a plunging neckline like above.

    I love the high waisted pants probably because I totally dig the 70’s clothing era, but what I am always clueless about is what shoes to pair them with since the legs of the pants are always so wide.

    my super-tall and skinny cousin makes this look work. I tried on a pair, took a look in the mirror, and all I could think was “mom pants” :(

    I love this look but agree that if you are going to try it, you probably need to go all the way with the 70s look, and you have to be tall, which sadly I am not.
