Would You Wear Jessica Simpson's High-Waisted Pants?

04/18/2007 at 01:34 PM ET

High-waisted pants have been lurking on the fashion horizon for a few seasons — either you are thrilled for the break from low-rise jeans and the threat of muffin tops or you are terrified at letting your torso be swallowed by your waistband. Jessica Simpson is apparently up for the challenge, stepping out for a night of dinner and dancing in a pair of distinctly high-waisted chambray pants and a clingy ivory turtleneck. While we might have picked a pair of pants that didn’t have pleated pockets on the hips, we tip our hats to Jessica for trying a different look and a hot new trend. But we want to know what you think! Tell us: Would you wear high-waisted pants like Jessica? Do you like the look on her?

This is the WORST look I’ve ever seen on Jessica. She looks like a pregnant lady from the 50s trying to cover up that she’s pregnant. I’ve got curves and those are good if you’ve got curves on the bottom…I actually have a pair of Express pants like that and they hide flaws AWESOMELY. They just look awful on her. She should stick w/ low rise pants that look awesome on her rather than looking like she picked out maternity pants. She looked better in that red dress in Australia!!

The look makes her appear much heavier that I think she is. She is a good looking woman and this does not compliment her at all.

OMG. Never ever ever. No.

Hell NO! Those pants make her look fat and her boobs look horrible… you never want your tits to be almost near your stomach… oh jessica!:(

These are truly disgusting and completely unflattering. The pants make her waist disappear and her stomach and chest look huge. She is a cute girl but this look is awful!!!

Never! Those things are hideous. I don’t care who you are, some trends just don’t work and shouldn’t be worn.

I’m sorry, but those pants are hideous. Jessica is beautiful, but those do absolutely nothing for her figure. They make her look bigger all over. The high waist makes are breasts look saggy like an old woman’s. The look like they would be in her lap when she sits down!

I like high-waisted pants just not the ones that Jessica is wearing in this photo; they are not flattering on her at all!

Ah no She is not a big girl and she looks like she packed on about 50 lbs in those pants maybe it’s the photo but no if that’s the look they give no way.

i have seen some okay looking high waisted pants, but these are just COMPLETELY UNFLATTERING! she is a tiny woman, and they make her look like she has a pooch! note to jess–never wear these in public again.
