Would You Wear Mischa Barton's High-Waisted Jeans?

04/24/2007 at 01:04 PM ET

Are we really looking forward to an entire summer of stars in high-waisted pants? First Jessica Simpson stepped out in her ribcage-hugging pants, and now the ever eccentricly dressed Mischa Barton has taken to the streets of London, channeling the ’70s in seriously high-waisted jeans over a Fleetwood Mac t-shirt. Sadly, this isn’t the most flattering trend we’ve seen in a while — and here we were so excited for our wide-leg denim to be in style! Tell us: What do you think of Mischa’s high-waisted jeans? Would you wear them?

She looks sweet in them, especially with her long flower-child hair, and I’m really thankful that they’re a MODEST trend for a change.

But the issue is that unless you’re really thin, I think high-waisted jeans are going to make you look fat (they even made Jessica Simpson, who has a fantastic curvy body, look fat).

Her pants look like something my mom would wear when I was growing up! Yuck, I think they look awful!

If I had her figure I would definetly wear these pants.

I really don’t understand this “trend.” It is so ugly!! It doesn’t do anything for fuller sized OR skinny girls. There are so many other pant styles that actually make your figure look good… I’ll stick to those!!

I have a pair and they are not too high waisted, I loke them. Mischa, on the other hand do us all a favor and fire your stylist.

Hideous, what a horrific trend to come back in style. WHY would anyone think this is attractive. She looks like someone who just stepped out of the most run down nasty trailer park. She shirt just looks old & ratty and the pants are just plain scary!

These are the ugliest pants!!! Not flattering at all!!! I’m 5’4″ and weigh 98 lbs. They wouldn’t look good on me or someone who is larger.

ICK. Worst fashion trend this year. Who CHOOSES to wear “Mom Jeans”?! The tucked in t-shirt doesn’t do much for the outfit either…
