Take It Up A Notch: 15 Ultra-Flattering, High-Waisted Styles To Try Today

There's nothing we love more than when a figure-friendly trend comes back on the scene (no offense, hip-huggers), and today, it's the high-waisted silhouette. From trousers to classic jeans and cutoffs to pencil and A-line skirts, designers are raising the bar on waistlines, and we couldn't be happier.
Why? Tiny waist. Hourglass silhouette. Legs for days. You get the picture. So, we went straight to the source — to where the high waistline originated — vintage! Here, our favorite 15 trousers, shorts, and skirts with the most flattering silhouettes of the season, culled from the very best vintage vendors we know. Stock up — these classic beauties aren't going out of style anytime soon.
