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?

These pants are awful. High waisted AND pleated? A recipe for disaster on anyone. She has a great, curvy figure and they make her look dumpy. An awful trend that should head back to the 80s. Yuck.

Pants look terrible on her.

I would wear them because I’m 5’7″ and a size 4 with a small waist. She’s short so this doesn’t work. She’s still way hotter than fat face Vanessa.


what are these stars thinking!!! just cause they have they wear everything thats new that comes out !! ITS AN UGLY LOOK AND SHE CAN DO WAY BETTER !!

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.

The pants add a good 15 pounds to her and it’s a horrible combination to the turtleneck sweater… That’s one trend I wouldn’t repeat…

Ladies: Jessica looks pregnant to me, see her huge chest.All
of a sudden this change in her whole body, specially the
tummy. For the clothes this looks good on a average frame
lets say 5’3″ or more. And if a petite girl tries this new
look has to take special attention what she wears on top.
But its a no no to Jessica, where’s her style gone. Yvonne
