Hemlines are getting lower, necklines are moving up and the sleeves are riding till the wrists. Demure much? Not really, it’s all about adding some colour to vintage vibe. One of our favourite trends inspired by ladies that define old Hollywood glam includes the high-waist. From Bavarian-chic dirndl skirts to wide-legged pants and retro short shorts —it’s all about pushing up the waistline. But, it makes for a fashion-conscious person to ace the tricky look. Tiers at the waist drawn with a snug pencil skirt, looking top heavy or stuck in schoolgirl mode? Combat these issues by following easy style tips. (Text: Snigdha Ahuja)
Shorties get high
To avoid the granny-pants syndrome (too loose, too high and too frumpy), invest in a high-waisted pair which suits your style. Denim cut-offs, lace versions dipped in pastels and prints — there’s much to choose from! When going for a classic tucked-in shirt to pair with your shorts, make sure the rolled-in remnants of your top don’t make for a bumpy waistline at the outside.
