High-waisted jeans, skirts and shorts should be worn with a belt and a crop top or a tucked in non-bulky blouse to accentuate the benefits of the slimming silhouette the style provides. To make the most out of the elongated high-waist pants, wear high heels and a form-fitting size.
High-waisted fashion styles appeal to all ages and body shapes, says model and fashion expert Jaimie Hilfiger. The high-waisted jeans, skirts and shorts can become unflattering if they are not the perfect size. A too-small size will provide unwanted bulging, while one that is too big creates added bulk and negates the slimming waistline.
