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.
