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 those pants make her look fat and pregnant. Her boobs look sloppy fat. Gross

That is a fashion risk even beautiful Jessica Simpson shouldn’t have taken. Absolutely awful. She rarely goofs in her fashion choices though, so we can’t be too hard on her.

I wear high waisted pants, but they flatter my figure. I would never wear one with pleated pockets as I have large hips and that would just make it look very unflattering. These pants would have looked better on someone else. On Jessica Simpson, they make her look pregnant.

Hideous! the pants make her look fat, which she isn´t, so is a bad idea. And somewhere i heard that big busted women should avoid turtlenecks, and i see why. It´s a really bad look on her.

She looks gorgeous! However, those pants are ick. VERYYYY unflattering!

Why would someone want to look fat and frumpy? She has a great figure and these do nothing good for her!

Hey, those are my pants! I wore them in 1983. Enough said.

I hate these pants on her….they make her look really fat and roly-poly, even on the part of her body that should be thinnest, right by her rib-cage. Also, the pleats are riduculous. The material, the color, they style….all of it’s horrible…and they look so uncomfortable the way they hug her crotch. It reminds me of when I was a little kid and wanted to dress myself way before I should have.
