Hillary Kerr: Hello! And welcome to the Who What Wear fashion closet, I am Hillary Kerr.
Katherine Power: And I am Katherine Power. For nearly a decade, hip-hugging pants and skirts dominated the fashion industry and by now you may have noticed that this trend has timed itself out to make way for the return of a higher waistline.
Hillary Kerr: That's right. Don't fear this trend just because you have seen a few bad mom jeans. It's actually much easier than you might think to get the look right.
Katherine Power: And we have got some simple tips. But before we get to that, let's take a look at a few pictures of some ladies who are getting it right.
Female Speaker: Here is Kate Bosworth on her way to dinner in Los Angeles wearing her dark high-waisted jeans by 18th Amendment and an easy white tank.
Now, we have got Jessica Alba in her black high-waisted pencil skirt, crisp white blouse and black patent leather belt.
Katherine Power: With those celebrity examples in mind, let's take a look and come up with a couple of outfits.
Hillary Kerr: When wearing high-waisted items make sure to keep your hair and makeup modern and pick contemporary accessories as well.
Katherine Power: Now unless you are super skinny with really narrow hips an extra long torso, stay away from the extreme high rise style. Most women will find a more flattering version of this trend by picking a moderate high rise. And sometimes just like tucking in your shirt and adding a belt, you can achieve this look with your favorite pair of mid-rise pants.
Hillary Kerr: First step, we have these high waisted jeans, this is the Georgia jean by 7 for All Mankind, it's huge in Hollywood right now, Jessica Alba, Rachael Bilson, Heidi Klum they are all big fans.
Katherine Power: High-waisted pants call for a simple solid colored top, like this tank from H&M. The look is all about the pants. So, keep the details in the top half of your outfit to a minimum.
Hillary Kerr: As we mentioned before, you will want to tuck that top in to show off the pant and also feel free to add a simple belt.
Katherine Power: Yes, there is no point in wearing high-waisted pants if you are going to wear a long top over them.
Hillary Kerr: When it comes to high-waisted skirts you have lots of options in the shirt department.
Katherine Power: A skirt with no front pockets or obvious zippers is the most versatile option. It looks great with a plain T or a crisp white blouse like what Jess has on today. This style also lends itself to wearing an amazing belt of any width.
Hillary Kerr: Thanks for watching Who What Wear TV.
