Finding the right pair of high-waist shorts can be a difficult process. Similar to your favorite pair of jeans, these shorts are shorts you can always depend on. However before shopping for a pair of high-waist shorts you must keep in mind what particular style you are going for. Do you want glitzy bedazzled shorts like these? Or should you opt for a more simple look like this pair?
This Fashionista is styling shorts from Brandy Melville. The simplicity of these shorts allows her to dress them up or down. On her way to class, she paired them with a simple black shirt. To dress it up at night, she put on a tighter fitting top, similar to this one, and rocked some heels. The great thing about high-waist shorts is that they truly accentuate and flatter your waist, especially on an hour glass figure.
One great thing I discovered a few months ago was the selection of high-waist shorts on Etsy. In the search box I typed in “studded shorts” and “tie dye shorts;” all of the results were handmade designs — you will be amazed by how people can recreate shorts. From dying and studding to distressing, you won't be able to wait to get your hands on some! If you are feeling especially creative, you can even do it yourself. An easy way to get a distressed look is through sanding and using a knife to fray the ends. Just experiment to create a look that's totally and especially for you.
