Its not nostalgia that brought this trend back in the lime light, but the fact that it highlights the torso, makes the legs look longer, creating a slimmer illusion. If worn correctly, a high-waist outfit can change your look all together. Irrespective of body types it can accentuate the waist and make you look nothing less that a diva!

With a high-waist outfit, proportion is the key. Choosing something that fits you like a dream is extremely essential, it should look like it was custom made for you! Also, one important thing to remember is to always keep the waistband visible, or else whats the point? A crop top would be apt in such a case.

Hour-glass:

If you’re the owner of a hour-glass body type, try teaming a classic fish-cut or a-line lehenga with broad belts, this will help highlight and accentuate your curves more. Team this with a cropped top and if your the shy type, use sheer or net to cover the copped area and get ready to sizzle! Also, don’t forget to add a pair of sexy pencil heel sandals to this already sexy look!

Pear-shaped:

An a-line lehenga in a flowy fabric with preferably solid colors or minimal work and a cropped top will make you stand apart from the crowd. Since your body type has a broader lower portion, this will draw all attention to the leaner upper part. Make sure to add a statement neck-piece to this look so the eyes stay up there!

Petite:

if you’re a woman with a smaller body frame, you can surely make the most of this trend. With a high-waist lehenga you can enhance your curves and hips both. Whichever cut you choose, as most would suit you, try sticking to lighter shades, this will prevent you from looking big or bloated. Also go for softer fabrics and don’t forget to team it up with few inch heels to add height!
