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?

Isn’t there a happy medium between high-waisted and ultra low-rise? I don’t think these pants would look flattering on anyone.

She looks fat…it looks like maternity wear. I would never wear those particular pants. Some high waist pants look good, but those are not flattering to her body style.

Not with that white top!

Even a thin pretty girl like Jessica can’t wear those pants. They do nothing for her, and they make her look fat. It’s just a trend, and she should stick to what looks good on her.

I can’t believe everyone is saying how big she looks. It’s ridiculous, you harp on twigs like Nicole Richie but then when a celeb has a healthy body she is called fat or a cow. She is a gorgeous girl and I hope she doesn’t let these posts effect her esteem. We all have had our days of not looking so great, unfortunately for her she has to do it in front of the world. It’s too bad she can’t look as great as you all must look.

Kerry on

Wow that makes me sick … does she not relise that it makes her look so … old and well old. I have to agree with what a lot of you have said … she looks like she raided her grandmothers closet!
