People call me a Rockabilly. I only wear what most would consider high waisted skirts and pants (12 inch rise typically, above my belly button). I get a lot of positive attention from guys AND girls who seem to like how I dress. I find that the low waist style nowadays is very unflattering on 98% of girls... it requires very large hips and a tiny waist to really look good. The higher pants flatter a woman's 'hourglass' figure and I think they look good on almost any girl.
I only have a pair and I've gotten compliments on them. With high waisted stuff like that you have to have a shirt you can tuck into it so I usually wear a more form fitting tank top with it. I think they can be really adorable so long as you style it well :)
