compelling me to rush to the nearest vintage spot to snag a pair of Calvins, circa Brooke Shields, until I was reminded, mid-route, of just how an unconventional thumbing to everything low-cut can spiral into a horrifying camel-toe faux pas. The offender in question rocked a pair of corset-waisted jeans that emphasized a none-too-subtle tummy pooch- transforming them into a pair of designer “mom” jeans, thus sparking an internal debate that has yet to be resolved. Though I’m no closer on deciding on whether the high-waist bottom is truly a pro or con, I gathered a few finds to introduce a debate that may turn out to be even more polarizing than the upcoming Democratic presidential debate:
White Catherine Malandrino high waist skirt, $345 at Shopbop
Grey Ant braided high-waisted wide leg jeans, $330 at Eva New York
dark khaki Chloe high-waisted pants, $1000 at Bergdorf Goodman
I look foward to hearing your two cents on this, folks.
