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?

America is beautiful as usual. I love her style choices, because she chooses things that’s flattering to her body type, and she’s definitely confident.

This skirt is classy and paired with a great pair of stilettos or peep-toe pumps can make the skirt really sexy. Not only that, but this skirt looks like it can be worn for all occasions {work, out to dinner or entertain guests at home}. I’d definitely wear this skirt.

I’m actually pretty suprised at this. She looks wonderful in that skirt. I seriously didn’t think that a curvy woman would be able to pull something like that off, but man she rocks it! It really makes her curves look good.

I LOVE THIS LOOK! It is such a throwback to the 40’s when the ladies were just that, and women looked classy and refined instead of like bag ladies wearing clothing that covers their shapes. I would absolutly wear this, but would probably not rock it as much as America. I Love her its about time real women have someone represent them in hollywood.

What a beauty!!! She puts Hollywood’s skinny lil’ “it-girls” to shame, she looks gorgeous! A real stunner!

I think that for women with smaller waists and bigger hips, it really works. But for people like me with a wider waist, it would end up looking… clunky. She looks great, though.
