If you're looking for a summer piece that's going to flatter your figure while also keeping you cool, high waisted shorts are a great option. The high waist on these shorts makes your legs look miles long and emphasizes your curves, regardless of your frame. They also prevent love handles and will keep you cool on a hot summer day.

History

High rise shorts have an effortlessly retro look, and that's because they were very popular in the early and mid-twentieth century. When shorts first became acceptable for women to wear, they were much longer and sat very high on the waist. Hemlines started to shorten in the 50s and 60s, but the high waist was still popular because it was so flattering. While high waisted designs fell out of style in the early 2000s, they are coming back again in full force as designers are embracing the look.

How to Style High Rise Shorts

There are so many fun ways to wear high rise shorts. A very versatile daytime option is to pair high rise denim shorts with a sleeveless blouse and sandals for a day out - you will look relaxed, yet pulled together. You can also wear lightweight high waisted shorts with a bikini top for a casual pool day look, or even rock a fun printed pair with a slinky top for a nighttime date. The key is to make sure the shorts fit well around the waist and that they balance out the top. For example, if you opt for a pair of floaty shorts, where a close-fitting top, and vice versa. This will make for a flattering and effortless combination.

High Rise Short Trends

In keeping with the current obsession with athleisure, celebs like Kendall Jenner have been rocking high-waisted bike style shorts with unique tops like sweaters and blouses. This trend can be difficult to pull off, so if you're looking for something a bit more accessible, look for tailored cargo shorts with a high-waist cut. These have been very popular lately and are both comfortable and easy to style. Although they are trendy, they are still a very effortless, pared-down choice for a simple daytime look.

Since high rise shorts are so flattering, they are a must-have for everyone for the summer season. They are very classy and are some of the easiest shorts to dress up, so you can wear them from day to night. Although they take inspiration from retro looks, there's something about them that's still thoroughly modern.
