High-waisted bottoms aren’t just for the statuesque—they can flatter every kind of figure, as long as you keep some simple tips in mind. One way is to play to its strengths, and give your pants or skirt their minute in the limelight. Tucking or folding in your top shifts the focus to your legs, which helps to lengthen your silhouette. High-waisted bottoms that fit at the waist and flare out at the end can impart a boho flair to your outfit, which can be further played up with a billowy, loose-fitted top. Otherwise, keep things sleek and choose a close-fitting top for maximum contrast—be it a leotard-like long-sleeved top, a t-shirt, or a crop top. Another way to play with form and proportion is to throw on an oversized jacket or long vest to create layers. With their distinctive silhouette that complements all builds and glosses over any (perceived) flaws, high-waisted pants and skirts raise the bar when it comes to making you look and feel good.
