Waistlines that begin where your belly button ends is not just a phenomenon for moms and aunts! It’s rapidly making its way into the fashion streets of the young generation too. Yeah, its time to welcome back high waist jeans!
There is no denial that high buttoned jeans make you look taller with long legs and flatter at the tummy.
Fashions are cyclic and this one rewinds the trends prevailing in the 1980’s and early 1990’s. The latter half of the 90’s and early years of the next century saw a step-by-step decrease in the waist height. So much was the decrease that Levi’s introduced its dangerously low waistline. With this, the waistline went so low that people proudly began flaunting their bum crack! That perhaps was the limit! And after successfully achieving the lowest possible point, the waistline has finally begun its journey upwards!
Apart from exploring the ‘prohibited area’ more and more, low waist jeans have another problem. It cling onto the lowest portion of your waist bone, ignoring the tummy muscles above it, which budge out in people who do not have a perfectly flat tummy.
This problem does not exist in high waist lowers and the excess fat around the waist remains confined within the zipped portion.
Here’s another reason to wear high waists. They hang onto the narrowest portion of your figure and play up your curves. They work great even for women with a boyish figure by giving it the hour-glassy look!
But high waists are also not free from flaws. If you are conscious of your tummy expanding while you gobble in food, you might feel the lack of space for your expanding tummy in a tight, high waist trouser!
Low waist is not kicked out yet, while high waist is sneaking in. You are free to take your pick according to your style and comfort level, without compromising on being in vogue!
