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?

See for her it works if you have no curves like her then the high waist isn’t for you I think she always looks great she’s what we American women really look like.

If I could pull it off I would definetly wear this outfit. She looks very elegant. I like America Ferrera. She seems to be a very nice women. She doesn’t mind showing of her curves.

I love this trend. I have a grey high waisted pencil skirt and it just makes me feel so womanly and feminine when I wear it. theres something about the 40’s styles that is so amazing.

I love the look and wear it all the time. It’s glamorous and classy. She looks fantastic!!!

I love the high-waisted skirt look, in fact I just bought a great one for work by Theory, but I’m not feeling this outfit on her. It looks a little big for her and I think she needs a better bra cos her boobs look like they’re resting on her tummy. I usually love her style, but I’m just not a fan of this look for her.
