8 things to keep in mind if you're wearing high-waisted pants

You may have noticed that in fashion, everything is back to square one. Today we see the trends of the 80s and 90s back in vogue. Some personalities and celebrities are betting on a retro look by sharing it on social media or on the red carpet. One piece of clothing that has returned to fashion is the high-waisted trousers. This cut helps to emphasize the silhouette and lengthen the legs. But we have to consider their cut and height when pairing with other garments.

At Pictolic, we have created a list of some of the most common mistakes we make when wearing this type of trousers. In addition, we'll share some tips to help you get the most out of them according to your style and body.

8 things to keep in mind if you're wearing high-waisted pants

1. Wear shorter clothing on top.

The perfect way to wear these clothes is to show your waist. Short clothes go well with high-waisted pants because they allow you to expose your waist. Don't hide it with long or wide clothes. Choose tops and blouses or T-shirts just above the hips.

2. Pair them with crop top sweaters.

You can also wear short or long-sleeved short sweaters, whichever style you like best.

3. Tie blouses or T-shirts in knots.

If you want to wear an oversized tee, tie a knot at the waist. It can be in the front or back. If it is a long button-down blouse, button it up to the first button of your trousers and roll up the two sides of the garment to tie them in knots.

4. Tuck your outerwear into your trousers.

If you're pairing your look with long or bulky pieces of clothing, be sure to tuck them into your pants. You can tuck in the entire shirt or blouse, or just the front of the shirt to expose the first pants button or belt.

5. Select the appropriate size.

Pants that are too tight or too small will not flatter your figure, and if they look too large, they will add extra volume to your silhouette. Make sure they suit you and keep the hem in mind when pairing them with other accessories.

6. Show off your shoes.

High-waisted pants go very well with high heels as they will give you the effect of lengthening your legs. Make sure the hem of the basting seam does not cover your shoe.

7. Choose lightweight fabrics.

We may hesitate to wear pants to the waist because we think they will be too tight and uncomfortable, but when choosing them, choose light and loose fabrics that match your figure.
