Style tip?  Calling all longwaisted women -  we have good news for Fall 2010!  The highwaisted pant is still in style.  Rock your highwaisted pants with a something fitted and cropped up top, as at Cynthia Rowley.  Or go bold with a dramatic coat and an oversized collar, as at Charlotte Ronson.  Or if you dare, try a bold colored highwaisted pant, like the bright orange number at Philip Lim.  Bonus tip for highwaisted pant figure flattery?  Accentuate your raised waistline with a belt to visually create some extra curves.

What do you think?  How would you wear highwaisted pants?  Share your thoughts in the comments!

    Well, I think anything can look good on a model! I do think high waists can be flattering for some women though. I’m reminded of them when I think of my mom and my aunts wearing high waisted pants in the late 80s – 90s, and remembering how cute they were on them! I would prefer them way more than the low rise pants that has lead to a serious crack problem in this nation.

    are these really high waist?
    they look like natural waist to me.

    i LOVE natural waist pants and skirts!

    Oh thank god someone has decided to break away from plumber’s butt pants. Long leg silhouette FTW. Let’s see some more of this. Down with peeking thongs, muffin top and butt crack!

    Finally! I am one of those long-waisted gals that has such a hard time finding flattering pants and I am SO happy to hear about this. Now it’s time to find some regular people priced pants.
