I love wearing high waisted skirts but i have a somewhat large behind and everytime i wear high waisted skirts i’m afraid they look bad. How can i wear a high waisted skirt while feeling confident and making it look cute?

Balance out a high waster skirt with a blouse with sleeves, a deep vee, ruffles, etc. This will create interest at the top of your outfit, but still won’t cover up your curves!

Example: http://www.fashionchicks.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/fashionchicks.co.uk/2007/09/highwaistsandblouses.jpg

Also, confidence is key when wearing clothing that you feel self conscious in…as long as YOU love it, people can’t question you.

i agree with the person above.
you should also pay attention to the type of high waisted skirt you buy. liek a-line or a pencil and stick to the one you find most flattering on your body type

If your waist curves in nicely, you can wear a belt to accentuate it!
I tried and it didn’t really help much, but here’s an example: http://www.chictopia.com/photo/show/305932-she+aimed+for+my+chest+with+lo-black-wet-seal-dress-black-wet-seal-belt-gray-xhiliration-skirt-black-vera

If you don’t feel comfortable in a body-hugging skirt, flowy ones work well and will hide hips and a belly. I personally like prints balanced with a solid top or stripes (I’m loving stripes/florals right now!)

they can sometimes look nice with a oversized blazer…not too oversized, vintage if possible :)

Buy skater skirts, they’ll make your legs look a mile long and combine them with a blazer or a cropped army jacket.

I agree – fit is what matters. I have an hourglass shape with a large bust and flowy, high waisted skirts make me look like I’m all boobs. If you’ve got a large behind and aren’t afraid to show it off, I’d suggest wearing a pencil skirt. They really do wonders for a curvy shape.

lejakl and sweetdion\: I like to wear my pencil skirt with a patternede or printed basic tee with a wide belt and heels, the t-shirt makes is pretty chill so in combination with the skirt it balences out.

high-waisted skirts i thought were supposed to enhance the rear so I say go with it and be proud…..many women in this world would kill for curves….if you do need some balance though make the focal point above the waist by either adding a belt, wearing a detailed top or throwing on some jewelry!!!

i never feel like i could pull off high waisted pencil/bandage skirts. i feel like my rear/hips aren’t the right shape…if that makes sense. they tend to make them look…flat and just not flattering. maybe because i’m short?

Oh you’re gonna look good wearing a high-waisted skirt. Just make sure it doesn’t fit too tightly in the hips so you can sit and walk. If you are a bit hesitant on a certain style of high-waist skirt, try it on in a darker color and wear something lighter/brighter on top. I love my black, full, high-waisted mini skirt full of tiers and ruffles and girlie junk. Though it enhances my rear, it doesn’t overpower the bottom half of my body because of its length, fit and color. :D

my suggestion would be wear a loose top that has a triangle cut below over a high waisted skirt..it will hide ur hips in the process and give that effortless look.:)

Like what many other people said, find a loose top, such as with ruffles, so it will even out your curves! The waist of the skirt will give you a perfect hourglass figure :) You can also try wearing a long jacket-blazer type thing.

once you find the perfect skirt, you should be able to wear just about any top with it (:

Just like the others, I think a loose shirt or one with loose details would help with balance. I would also recommend experimenting with belts.

I’m the same shape, and I always belt it with a wide belt. It balances it out perfect :)
