STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: The High-Waisted Craze

We all know a shift in denim fashion came with the return of high-waisted pants. As history would have it, most successful old school trends tend to return to modern culture, so this famous trend from the ’70s and ’80s was bound to take charge sooner or later (with this also came the return of crop tops and jelly shoes). After its years of total dominance and a staple in any girls’ wardrobe, the low-cut skinny jeans were replaced with high-waisted jeans.

This trend is no stranger to the runway, being featured by the likes of Tommy Hilfiger and worn by famous Fashionistas like Alexa Chung and Victoria Beckham. Their comfort and versatility have garnered a lot of attention from those who are fashion forward and enjoy vintage trends. You can find jeans like these practically everywhere these days: Topshop, NASTY GAL, American Apparel and more offer a wide selection of different washes, as well as wide leg styles.

High-waisted jeans are usually very flattering; this Fashionista proves how great they can look with a few simple summer staples, like a crop top and white platforms. This Fashionista’s jeans do well during the summer because of their light wash. They are from American Apparel, making them a bit pricey, but their comfort and durability make them worth every penny. Her crop top is perfect for this look, because when wearing jeans during the summer, one should wear a breezy or short sleeve top to keep them cool. This Fashionista’s white platforms complete her look by keeping it comfortable and simple with a short, chunky heel.
