Embracing My Body: Making High Waisted Pants Work

February 8, 2017

Some say that high waisted pants can elongate the silhouette, narrow the waist, and mask ‘flaws’. Not me. I have always felt that the high-wasted style accentuates my curves, when I feel more comfortable hiding them. I also don’t pay my dues to crunches, so you will barely ever see me wearing a shirt tucked into my pants. But this season, stores are carrying a great selection of high-waisted pants, and they look so fun and stylish, that I wanted to give them a try and make them work.

These Topshop pants are my first high-waisted purchase this season. I loved them for their neutral color and polished details. These pants are perfect for elevating my work look. To get the most slimming effect possible, I wore the pants with my nude leg-elongating pumps (high heels are perfect for this look) and a simple tieneck blouse. The look is very feminine and elegant, and I like it.

Having said that, liking it doesn’t make me feel super comfortable wearing it. I find myself thinking about sucking in my stomach, and that is not the way to live. So for now, to embrace this style, I have to work on embracing my body even, whether or not I work out. Challenge is on!

    I love this outfit, the trousers and blouse work really well together. I’ve just started wearing high waisted trousers and jeans again. I remember when the trend was for super low cut jeans (thanks a bunch Britney!) which were both uncomfortable and unflattering. Sitting and bending over was tricky to say the least! I’m much happier in high waisted trousers!
