How She’d Wear It with Style and Cheek – High Rise Trousers

By Tuesday, September 29, 2015 0 Permalink

A great pair of high rise trousers instantly makes you look statuesque. Think 1970s movie star glamour, turning heads on the red carpet. And this goes for both straight leg and wide leg trousers, which is what we’re going to play with today. We’ve got two different styles of high rise trousers, each calling backing to a different decade but with modern accents. The high rise look is all about drama, especially trousers which exude confidence and attitude. These are powerful pants! As you’ll see, to really rock a pair of high rise trousers, you’ve got to be a boss from head to toe.

1. Zara Faux Suede Trench Coat

2. TOPSHOP JESSICA Mid-Heel Ghillie Shoes

3. TOPSHOP High Neck Ribbed Funnel Neck Top

4. Rebecca Minkoff Three Band Ring Set

5. Gorjana Carla Midi Connector Ring

6. Kate Spade Emerson Place Mini Vivenna

7. Tai Pave Earrings

8. SUNDAY SOMEWHERE ‘Laura’ 54mm Cat Eye Sunglasses

9. Maison Margiela Straight Leg Trouser

If you’re not going the crop top route, you’ll want to wear a shirt that can be tucked in so you can show off that high rise style. I went for a high neck sleeveless blouse, to bring a little ’90s into the mix along with that Meg Ryan style suede trench coat. All together the blouse, trench, and high rise trousers make for a very clean silhouette. It’s high drama and attitude with the accessories from the cat eye sunglasses to the ghillie heels, not to mention all of the gold. Overall, this is a look fit for a boss.

These high rise wide leg trousers are showstoppers, especially when paired with a big faux fur coat. The overall look however, is very soft and elegant, something you could wear to work (without the coat) but would be right at home at a swanky bar or cocktail party. The whimsical duck-patterned blouse with ruffled neckline, corduroy trousers, and faux fur call for some attention grabbing accessories. I went with a tortoise and leather mini bag and round sunglasses with scalloped wire detail.
