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’m actually wearing one right now. LOL. She looks great.

No, I would not wear *anything* high-waisted. It’s universally ugly and unflattering.

Cindy on

She looks gorgeous! Would definately wear it. Nice to see a real woman with curves in Hollywierd.

Love it!! I think that it is very flattering especially for the ones that are thinner around the rib cage and curvier below.

Mary on

This is such a tastefully sexy look that plays up America’s beautiful womanly shape. I would definitely wear this.

America looks awesome! I love this look but it’s not for me. I am on the short side so don’t think this style would work for me.

However, I do love it!!

Love it! She is very sexy in it! I think she has a great figure! I am so happy when I don’t have to look at another stick insect! Yeah for real women! I think the skirt looks amazing on her! I love how the top frames her bust and the skirt falls on a flattering part of the legs. I will buy one!

Stacy on

I think America looks sensational. According to Hollywood she’s a fuller figured woman. I think she’s close to perfect and dresses to suit her body shape. A great fashion role model.

Melinda on

It’s not my style but America looks cute in it. It’s great to see a young celebrity dressing with class and not looking like trash. She is definitely an example for all young girls.

only a girl with smokin’ curves could work this. so yeah, i would.
