Cropped & Striped LS Top + High Waist 70s Jeans

So, my friend and I were having a fashion debate the other day. It was all about 70s style high waist pants. I’m for it and adore it on women of all shapes (I also think this of kaftans as well), while she thinks I’m utterly out of my mind.

Personally, I think it’s sexy and gives the illusion of a shapely figure. It flattens the tummy, and accentuates the hips/butt. I think it’s a good thing.

She claims I think that because I’m a “flower child” & I live in my own little world. Hahaha.

What are you thoughts? Let’s discuss.

    As a girl, who only wore bell-bottoms for most of high school and much of college, I always vote on that style.  Guess what, your blog influenced me to buy a pair recently, now I have two, so I am back.  Check out my recent posts: http://www.lotusofwadiarts.blogspot.com

    Ever since seeing you with all your FAB jeans, I’ve been buying left and right!!  I love high-waisted jeans, but then again I love anything retro.  THis look is FAB.  I stopped commenting for awhile cause I basically say the same thing…every outfit is FAB…lol  Hope all is well.

      Marsha, thank you. You should never stop leaving comments. I interact and usually respond. This pair is by a brand called London. I have had it for a while, but you can google them – try different search terms. I bought them online years ago, unfortunately don’t remember the store 🙁

        So funny you said London.  I’ve had a pair on hold from this brand in my cart on 6pm.com.  They are high-waist going for only 14.95!!!  Now I will purchase!!…lol  Thank you so much for the info!

      • Style Pantry June 13, 2011

        No problem. Glad it all worked out, Marsha.

    I’m all about the high waist especially lately since I’ve been putting away the food. It’s perfect for hiding a food baby haha.

    I like high waisted pants. I personally don’t think I could pull them off. I’m 5’4 and really think they only work on taller women. They look great though.

    • Necole McGhee June 11, 2011 Reply

      I was just about to ask how tall she is:) I am much shorter than 5’4 barely 5 feet and I don’t think I could pull them off!  

      • Style Pantry July 12, 2011

        I claim 5’7 ( a tiny short of it).  I also wear at least 4 inch platforms 🙂

        I live for high-waisted pants and I’m 5′ 2″. The trick is just as SP mentioned…HIGH HEELS, PLATFORMS, etc. I may not be the most “stylish” person, but those pants get me a ton of compliments and accentuate all the right places!
