Let's Get High (Waisted)
By Corey Kelly
The late Whitney Houston wasn't lying when she told Diane Sawyer that crack is whack. Let's face it: Peek-a-booty, a mishap that occurs when someone bends over in low-rise pants, is never flattering. That's why this season's revival of high-waisted trousers are the most effective trend-to-the-rescue.
Kate and Laura Mulleavy (of Rodarte), Wes Gordon and Jason Wu are just a few designers who've included high-waisted looks into their Fall 2015 collections. However, nobody designs a higher-waistlined garment better than Isabel Marant. Her collection overflowed with above-the-navel skirts and trousers paired with a range of structured knitwear, printed tops and perfectly belted outerwear, all styled in her signature bohemian aesthetic.
Isabel Marant's Fall 2015 collection should be your go-to reference when deciding on how to incorporate high-waisted trousers into your wardrobe. Remember that pants designed with a higher waistline will lengthen the legs and accentuate the hips. This is why you'll want to aim for a clean and sharp silhouette. Also, consider neatly tucking in shirts and knits to emphasize your figure. The clothing you wear should always complement your form. It should never wear you.
