The Higher the Waist-The closer to God?

That isn’t the exact saying, but it should be! About 90% of the bottoms in my closet are high waist (whether they are shorts, skirts or jeans). High waist articles that reach slightly above my belly button (yes, I wear them that high) bring the focus to my waist line and reduce my apple shape while making my legs look miles longer. Instead of focusing on my chest or shoulders your eyes are immediately drawn to the midpoint of my body and it defers attention away from the fact that my hips aren’t as curvy. High waist pants also flatter my gluteus maximus for that ultimate lift also making for longer visual lines that are flattering to the eye.

Adding to the high waist craze, most of my bottoms also have some sort of volume, pleating or other detail to draw attention to that area (scalloped hems, intricate designs, you name it). Trouser styles or a -line skirts also give the illusion of curves where there are none.

Here are some of my favorite ones that Im eyeing at the moment…..

Pretty in Pastels

Easter is right around the corner and what better way to start representing spring then with gorgeous fresh pastels. I bought these wide leg shorts from Asos a while ago and have been waiting to style them. They go great on casual days with a simple tank top, chunky accesories and sandals or as I styled it here for windy days, loafers and a tucked in button up. As always they are high waist and the mint color really accentuates any skin tone. My striped button up is from Forever 21 and so is my chunky flower necklace. I purchased my Michael Kors loafers at TJMAXX and the neutral tone goes with anything! Pastels can be paired with both neutrals, or color blocked with other pastels to make for perfect spring time look. Im looking forward to rocking these all spring long!
