Next up on our list of Fall Trends styled three ways is the High-Waisted Bottom. Cut just at or above your navel, this fit hides any lumps and bumps (goodbye, Muffin-Top!), cinches the midsection at the smallest part of the body, and can be found in many different forms to maximize all of our best features!
A few tips:
- Buy the right size! A size too big and this style can venture into “Mom Jean” territory. A size too small will create volume that isn’t there. Make sure you try on a few sizes to get the perfect fit for your shape.
- For women with a larger bust, this is the time to find a great bra. We want the girls to sit closer to our collarbone rather than our waistline when wearing this style.
- If you are very petite or short-waisted, try going with more of a mid-rise style rather than a true high-waist. The last thing we want to do is shorten proportions instead of lengthen!
Ladies with either of these shapes, this is a great trend for you. A high-waisted flare or pencil skirt will accentuate the slim waist of an hourglass as well as create the waistline for a rectangle. Adding a belt in a contrasting color will highlight the midsection even more and these two shapes should always remember to tuck in when wearing a high-waist bottom.
A great way to try out this trend for these shapes is to find an A-line skirt or wide-leg pant to balance out the top half of the body. Apple shapes should keep the top slim and look for a v-neck or wrap style that meets at the waistband but not tucking in. Finding a great cropped, patterned jacket or one with shoulder detail is the right option to pair with a high-waisted bottom for the triangle shape.
For those of us with broader shoulders and more volume on top, A-line skirts or flare leg pants are the perfect way to create volume on the bottom half. Another way to oomph up the bottom is to add a pattern or color while keeping the top neutral.
