I have to admit: I’m not a fan of the look of high-waisted pants. But I loved the color of these pants and the super-wide legs so when I saw them at Crossroads Trading Company I tried them on. I usually leave my shirts untucked so you can’t really tell they’re high-waisted.

The high waist is really comfortable. They stay up nicely, and I don’t flash my underwear when I sit down. There’s something to be said about that. I’m still not flaunting the waistline though!
I love how long these are too. Very ’70s and very leg-lengthening. I like when long, wide pants hide my shoes–except for the fact that no one gets to see my footwear. Have you tried high-waisted pants? What about flares?

They look great! I just purchased some mustard colored ones and can’t wait to wear them.
Ooh! Fun 🙂 I have mustard skinny jeans. Suprisingly, they go with everything.
Great look! Love your trousers – makes your legs look so sleek and super long! ❤
Thanks – and thanks for commenting!
High waisted re never my favorite. I am an “apple” shaped girl, instead of “pear”, and the if high waitsted pants fit my in the waist are too big in the hips and vice versa. Cute pants though on you! And they add variety to the wardrobe, with color and cut.
Good point – it’s probably harder to get a good fit when there’s so much “rise.” I admit they do look weird when the shirt isn’t untucked.
I still love this look: long, lean, flared and retro. But I especially love that fashion is not restricted anymore. We can wear bellbottoms one day and skinny jeans the next, a mini skirt today and maxi tomorrow. Some styles don’t look flattering (and really never did!) like mom jeans and high-waisted pants with pleats. True, high-waisted pants are comfortable, but I think the way you wear your top out (not tucked in) looks better.
I agree – I love having choices but I choose not to wear high-waisted pleated pants–unless they’re acid-washed (kidding).
Great color combo, Jean!
