Would You Wear a High-Waisted Skirt Like America?

With her curvy shape, America Ferrera really works this 40’s inspired glam look. But she’s not the only one star who’s loving high-waisted pencil skirts — we’ve spotted everyone from Victoria Beckham to Kate Walsh donning it. Unlike high-waisted jeans (which are tough on many body shapes), these sexy numbers are universally flattering and actually slim down your silhouette. Just remember to wear it with stilettos, wedges or high heeled boots. The longer your leg appears, the better. Tell us: Is this a trend you would try?

I’d definitely wear that skirt! It’s fantastic. I love America; she always looks so classy and beautiful.

i wouldn’t, but she looks fine in it. i think it make her hips look a big. but she does have curves so she looks pretty good.

Stunning!! America is a true beauty with a GORGEOUS figure. I love how she works her curves!

mc on

Heck yeah I’d wear it! It’s like you reverse version of the empire waist dresses, only these actually look phenominal on everybody. A great pair of heels only makes you look better with this one as well!

It looks great on America, but no, it’s not a look that I’m ready to try. Until it becomes more popular, it looks a little costume-y.

Sarah Lee on

I think it’s adorable! Very classy!

Elle on

The fit is really unflattering across her midsection. But I like the idea, especially with peep-toe pumsps.

Teresa on

Absolutely! Love it.
