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?

I think it makes her look fat and I would not wear them.

I think the pants make her look fat. Especially since she has big breasts. It makes her look slumpy. She’s wearing the “mom jeans”.

Misti on

She looks hideous! Not to mention about 20 pounds heavier!

No, I would never wear these pants. These pants should have never come back into style and I don’t think they flatter any type of figure. I do agree that this is not Jessica Simpsons best look, I think that some of the comments are cruel. She is no way fat or looks like a sausage, these pants simply do not flatter her.

Ha! Sara, very funny indeed! You are right, Jessica does look round here. She should have just kept out of the 80’s fashion graveyard and kept those pants buried where they died!!! NASTY PANTS!

Well, I think most of you here will not like me for saying this…but, I can’t stand Jessica Simpson.

I don’t find her pretty or beautiful, she doesn’t strike me as having any extraordinary talents, her face always has some stupid expression on it, and her mouth is always wide open…like she’s about to catch popcorn in her mouth?? And, her color, she should just stay natural…her hair looks terrible and that spray tan is far too much…yuck!

I just find her terribly annoying….I have high standards to when it comes to having real talent having been around some damn fine talent myself. I know there is someone out there far more prettier, far more talented, and far more deserving than Jessica is. And if, you don’t like it, well that’s that! Please, no offense.
