High rise bottoms are always in fashion. Year after year, they return in updated versions. If you own one, you know how versatile they can be. They look flattering on women of all shapes and sizes and can be worn in any weather.
Here are six ways you can rock the high rise trend and never go out of style.
1. High Waisted Jeans
Revamp your style and pair your high waisted jeans with shirts in bold prints and colours. Front tuck your shirt in your jeans and keep your accessories minimal for a casual look. Finish off with a statement belt and cool sneakers or loafers.
The tucked in shirt enables a full frontal view of your high waist which makes your legs look longer and gives the illusion of a tall, slender silhouette.
2. Pair Them With Corsets
High waisted styles and corsets go hand in hand. While corsets work to cinch in your waist and give you an hourglass shape, high rise styles lengthens your legs and torso.
Wear high waisted jeans with a corset as a top or wear a steel boned or an underbust corset over your top to turn your outfit from boring to sexy in no time. You can experiment with different corset materials like leather, lace or satin variants.
3. High Waisted Skirts
High waisted skirts don’t necessarily mean denim skirts. You can experiment with pencil skirts or A-line skirts that come in high waist styles. Wear your high waist A-line skirt with a casual top and pair them with flats or slip ons for an easy daytime look.
A pencil skirt is the most elegant piece of clothing a woman can own. Pair them with a chiffon top and heels for a more effeminate look. You can opt for a longer length to turn them into a workwear outfit.
4. High Waisted and Flared
You can wear your high waisted bottom in a flared style. Go for high waisted denims or trousers which are flared at the bottom for a style that is both modern and chic.
Pair them with cropped tops or gingham tops for a sophisticated look. You can even wear a bullet bra under your top for the complete retro look.
Elevate your outfit with a pointed toe glossy heels and add a pop of red with the lips for a look that is sure to turn heads wherever you go.
5. High Waisted Shorts
This is a great option for warmer weather. Compared to your regular shorts, high waisted shorts make your outfit look stylish yet refined. You can go for printed, striped or denim shorts.
Wear them with a casual tee or keep it feminine with a lacy top or a silk camisole. Pair them with casual kicks or add a bit of glam with strappy heels.
6. High Waisted Trousers
If you want to go for a more feminine look, opt for high waisted culottes or trousers in light materials like sheath, chiffon or satin. Pair them with a lace or floral blouse. You can keep the blouse tucked into your trouser or go for a cropped style.
You can even step it a notch and pair them with an off shoulder top. Accessorize with some statement jewellery and finish off with flats or sky high heels.
