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?

Oh my god these pants are so tragic looking that i emailed all the woman in my office this picture…she looks so…..lets say bloated…not flattering at all!

I love high waisted pants, they flatter the figure AS LONG AS YOU PICK THE RIGHT PAIR. Jessica is a beautiful woman who looks goodin most anything, however the pleats on the front do make her look like she is carrying some extra weight in the front. I give her props though, I think high waisted pants can be a great look.

i’ve seen plenty of flattering high waisted jeans lately but these are certainly not. the waistline isn’t the issue here; it’s the light wash, the pleated pockets, and the big white button!

never in a million years

Fette on

She looks like Humpty Dumpty. She looks A-W-F-U-L.

Poor Jess – but I guess love can do that to ya…. Make you gain weight I mean!!

Tianna on

she looks dumpy, or like she is pregnant.

Autumn on

I have seen some unattractive outfits before but this is horrid. Beyond the fact that the outfit makes her look huge, the tones do not work well with the dark tan/hair.

Crystal on

The pants are not looking good on her, but she is not ugly. It was just a fashion mistake. We all have made them.

AT on

She looks frumpy with a border-line camel toe!
