These High-Waisted Shorts are Your Legs’ Best Friend

This might surprise you, but I’m short as hell. Ha. Whenever I meet one of you in person, the first thing you say is, “I thought you were taller.” I do wear heels a lot, and I also enjoy wearing styles that are elongating. Today’s featured high-waisted shorts (shop them here), for example, make the legs appear a little bit longer. I featured them last week in a round-up of tie-waist shorts. When Ann Taylor launched a sale on shorts recently, I rushed to try them on and loved them.

High-Waisted Shorts

These shorts have my favorite silhouette for bottoms. As a classic pear shape, I love bottoms that just flow over the hips. So, shorts with a fluid fit like this pair are such a joy to wear. As an added bonus, the shorts have a high-waisted fit that elongate the legs. And, the self-tie belt is such a chic finishing touch.

I wore this combination to move around last weekend. My striped off-the-shoulder top and lace-up sandals made for a cool combo to survive the hot St. Louis day in style.
