Yup. The high-waisted denim you may remember from the 70's is back and this is NOT a good thing. Basically, these are "mom" jeans hacked off and give even the most petite girls a long butt. I am not sure who would want to add length to their derriere, but apparently many people do judging by the ratio of high-waisted shorts to regular ones. They are found in nearly every store- from Nordstrom to Forever 21 for women of all ages to try out. Here is a sampling of the myriad of styles I found:
With color and a bit of "bling" these bring back memories of "hypercolor"
Perhaps these "modern" gems are more your style. See how they also elongate the crotch are- always flattering:
So, this is one fashion statement I will be avoiding this summer season. Let's just hope come fall, people are not sporting these with colored tights underneath.
On a positive note- they do eliminate the dreaded "muffin top" plaguing society for the past few years when "super low-rise pants" were all the rage. And that, in itself, might be worth the the abundance elongated butts roaming around.
