The ’70s high-waisted trend has made a full force comeback in jeans, pants, leggings, skirts and shorts that are seen on students all over campus. These pieces transcend seasons and have been extremely popular for a couple of years now. Originally high-waisted clothing was related to hipsters and hippies, but it is now associated with all fashion styles. From gothic to preppy, there will definitely be high-rise items worn.

This Fashionista looks spring ready with her high-waisted jeggings and light cardigan. We discussed how high-waisted jeans and jeggings are her go-to outfit staple since they are comfortable. All you have to do is tuck in a shirt or a sweater, and you are ready to go! She pairs her jeggings with a white Ralph Lauren V-neck and an oversized beige cardigan. You can get a similar light brown cardigan from Forever 21 or one from H&M. To finish off her look, she wears classic white Vans and gold framed Ray-Ban Aviators. This Fashionista was working on a group project when I ran into her, and instead of a backpack, she uses a large black Le Pliage Longchamp tote. As demonstrated by this Fashionista, high-waisted jeans are an easy way to create causal yet trendy look.
