It’s safe to assume that R29 readers are schooled in the geometry of cut-off shorts (for a quick refresher, click here). But, when it comes to their sister styles, we could use a CliffNotes-style crash course. So, we tapped Wendy Nguyen of Wendy's Lookbook to teach us a thing or two about the trendy high-waisted versions all over the runways of Rachel Comey, Prabal Gurung, and the like.
Now onto the lesson: The blogger and philanthropist (she volunteers at InsideOUT Writers, a nonprofit organization close to her heart) broke out a versatile pair of Theyskens' Theory tailored shorts and took to the L.A. streets in three noteworthy ensembles. Break out the No. 2 pencils, folks — Wendy's about to drop some serious sartorial knowledge.
