Tips on Wearing High-Waisted Shorts
  • -Don’t wear high-waisted shorts that are too short. If your cheeks are hanging out of the bottom, they’re too small! Though this style may be ok for the beach or poolside, it’s not the classiest look to wear in public.
  • -Don't wear high-waisted shorts that are too tight! In general, this is a good rule to live by when choosing bottoms. Muffin top or lord forbid, Camel Toe -is just NOT cute! You want people to be staring at you for the right reasons, not the wrong.
  • -Don't wear your high-waisted shorts unzipped and folded down like you see some offenders at the beach and other various venues. Even if you absolutely love you bikini bottoms and want to show them off skip this sloppy look. It is distracting and not flattering. Opt for a sheer mesh cover-up if you're trying to show off your bikini while covering up.
  • -Do take advantage of the fact that High-waisted bottoms are made to show off and emphasize a tiny waist. Add a thin belt, not too baggy tops and tuck them in. Even if you don’t have a slender upper body, this will help give the illusion of one.
  • -Do pair them with fabulous footwear. If you have legs on the shorter side, a fab pair of wedges can make all the difference. Even the slightest height you can add to your outfit will elongate your stems and completely change the appearance of your body. And it’s summer! Why not wear some bright, glorious wedges or strappy high-heeled sandals?!
  • -Do go retro! After all, this style is a blast from the past and pairs well with other vintage style items. Think corset topsbandeau tops and fun vintage prints like polka dots, chevron or stripes.
      Keep in mind that high-waisted denim is flattering but takes some getting used to. Since most of us have gotten used to wearing low-rise denim for years now, switching things up can be a bit shocking at first. To ease into this trend we recommend wearing your first pair of high-waisted cutoffs with a top that just barely skims the waistline of the shorts. This will give you more coverage than a typical crop top but will still let the high-waist cut peek through during your movement of the day. After your first time wearing these beauties you should start to feel more confident about rocking them with various tops.The great thing about denim is that it is highly versatile and matches with just about anything! Think about it, you would pair pretty much any shirt in your closet with your favorite pair of jeans. You can do the same with High-Waisted Denim Shorts. The difference is HOW you wear the tops. We recommend tucking in T-shirts or any top that covers more than a third of the shorts. The whole point of High-Waisted Denim Shorts is to accentuate your waist line and show off your legs. Tucked in shirts & crop tops highlight your midsection and mimic hourglass like curves.The high-wasited trend is all about fun -carefree, 90’s inspired, flirty fun! Vintage and retro fashion is at a peak right now, don’t miss out on this flattering and edgy trend!
