high waisted trousers can sometimes be tricky to wear. it's definitely a look that is best suited for those with proportioned or long torsos to prevent the wearer from looking short waisted. it's also a style best avoided by those with a fuller bust line to prevent the appearance that your chest is sitting on top of your pant waist (unless you're wearing a really great minimizing undergarment). this how to wear post is inspired by one of my sisters who is always able to take any item, no matter how casual or dressy, and put her own spin on it to create a look that makes you think twice about the limitations of a garment.
high waisted trousers don't require that all tops must be tucked in. these haider ackermann's have a flat enough front that allow blouses to lay flat without bulk. keeping the colour palette monochromatic or similar tonal value can help the wearer look taller (good for short girls like myself). to make the pants look more casual for a dress down option but still look polished wear with a stylized tee tucked in (or in this case a lace print sweatshirt), classic jewelry with a twist and the ankle zip of the trouser undone over stylized high tops.
