For those who frowned on the low-rise, sexy styles of the '90s and early 2000s, something like the high-waist look comes along. Many love these for their slimming qualities. Many more despise these simply because... well, they're too high up and lack style. Though some of the belly-baring styles of the '90s have come and gone, wearing high-waist bottoms gives some femmes new found confidence in baring midriff. There are those who feel the navel/belly button should NEVER be shown. If you want an example of high-waist bottoms + bare midriff, check this out and you be the judge:

Well? Good look or not?

--- High-Waist in General ---The only celebrity I know that has lovingly embraced the high-waist is Katy Perry. Even Katy Perry's album cover, "One of the Boys" shows her sporting a cropped top with some really high-waist shorts. Then too, Katy Perry is very much a modern '60s pin-up girl. Other celebrities have tried high-waist bottoms such as Katie Holmes, Alicia Keys, and the infamous high-waist jeans Jessica Simpson wore. The thing I fear is that high-waist bottoms are not for petite figures. So I'm sure shorter types will get to enjoy the beauty high-waist pants can provide. I'll discuss every possible element of high-waist style in this blog entry.

(ADDED: 4/20/2010) A look I'm starting to like is a plaid shirt paired with high-waist jeans. The inspiration was from the 4/19/2010 edition of Monday Night RAW, when the cast of "MacGruber" were the co-hosts. Most notably, Vicki St. Elmo. She wore this plaid button-down shirt, some light blue high-waist jeans, and some rugged sneakers. She was a cutie!
Unfortunately, there isn't a good enough picture I can use online to show you an example of wearing high-waist jeans with a plaid shirt. Maybe I'll update this space when I find a good picture I can actually use.

It's okay not to like high-waist pants. But I'm pretty sure many femmes will tell you that at least wearing high-waist bottoms help to avoid showing off the belly or giving discomforting peeks of one's backside or panties when bending over. This is another one of the comfort fashion styles. An important element of fashion is comfort. If you're not comfortable in what you wear, you don't feel confident. And if you don't feel confident, then you're not looking and feeling your best. You can search any search engine or any fashion website for high-waist bottoms to suit your needs and your style. Are you seeking a pair of high-waist jeans? How about a good pair of high-waist dress pants? Maybe you want to wear some high-waist shorts or capris? Or maybe you want to go with some high-waist skirts? Your options are endless. These high-waist bottoms provide lots of slimming style of them. Some simply wear these to maintain a lovely silhouette. Whatever your reasons for loving or hating these, the high-waist will serve you well as long as you know how to wear these and show some serious style.
