I love high waisted pants and skirt. People will call it 80s but idc, it is sexy in my eyes. It just pronounces your figure more... that small waist andperky butt of mines. When I wear them I get more stare then with todays style jean. Not all high waist pants suit everyone though. I am glad I am not the onky one who think like this is GAGS. But I am so IN LOVE with high waist. I feel like I just work the street with them on.
It looks awful because it messes up the proportions of the body. It elongates the butt, while shortening the torso. I like a nice long torso, and I don't agree it accentuates a woman's figure, it rather distorts it. High waist skirts are probably the worst, because they shorten the the upper body so much while having bare legs. Regular, low waist will accentuate and show off your figure much more.
In the end, you should wear what you feel comfortable in.
NO. They're awful. They hide all the sexy curvy bits around the hips, which are the sexiest part of the body, and they make you look all out of proportion. Plus they look like they're from the '80s, which is bad enough in itself.
I associate that style with overweight, and elderly women. I don't mind a girl in a high wasted skirt, that can look good, but high wasted shorts and jeans are not going to light my fire. At least if they are as high as I think.
