The High-wasited trend has been around since the 1940s and it will be around for quite some time.

It is the ideal fashion tip to elongate your legs and accentuate your waist.

High-waisted bottoms are also a solution to every girl’s dread: the muffin top.

The key is to find bottoms that hit your natural waist and hugs your hips.

Who doesn’t want to look like a tall vintage-inspired beauty queen? Be careful while choosing your high-waisted garments.

Because if they do not fit or suit you well, you could end up with a fashion faux pas.

Now that you have got it figured out about the highwasiters, its time to know how to wear it and carry it off.

Here are some style tips on how to attain the classic and sophisticated high-waist style with panache:

 ■ Make sure your high-waisted shorts are nice and snug, they will be unflattering on you if there is bunching of the fabric around the waistline.

The most important thing to remember when sporting this trend is to find bottoms that suit your body type perfectly.

■ Cropped tops are ideal for the high-waist look because of the ease with which they can be tucked in.

It is very important to tuck in your shirt if you want to pull off this look to the T.

When tucking, don’t pull the top out too much because this will add to the volume on your waist.

Also, do not tuck in too much or else you will look stiff and uncomfortable.

■ Belts are a must with this look.

Pick a skinny belt to draw attention to your highwaisted style.

Or, if you want to emphasis your upper body and cinch your waist, a wide belt is a must! Either ways, the look is incomplete without a belt.

■ Heels heels heels! These are the perfect final touch to this look because heels add to the elongated look of the legs.
