There's a trend that we've been loving for all season and that's the high-waisted look! It's flattering on all as it hides a bit of belly bulge, while seriously elongating the legs. Whether you want to go chic and sophisticated with a pair of high-waisted trousers or flirty and femme with a skirt, this trend is always a stylish choice. We've caught up with some of the biggest style bloggers out there to see their take on the high-waisted trend!
If the idea of retro lingerie makes you think of dreadful terms like "foundations" or worse, girdles, keep reading. Lacy little things have their place in many a top drawer, but retro lingerie, with a little more fabric and function, is just as alluring. Think along the lines of high-waisted panties and boyshorts, longline bras, tap shorts, and feminine ruffles- fun, right? The simpler shapes and modest cuts convey an innocence lost in the heaps of skimpy lace found in most stores these days, and even if you're far from innocent, it's fun to play the part every once in awhile. For a retro twist on a modern favorite, try Hanky Panky's hi-rise panty- it's perfect for high waisted jeans and skirts. Betsey Johnson's cami and tap pant set is a sweet take on this throwback trend, and if pale pink and ribbons are your thing, you'll love the charming 'Amelie' bralette from Undrest. Sure, these don't exactly agree with your SO's unofficial "less is more" mantra, but this was never really about them, was it? See the slideshow for my favorite retro underthings.
