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 love this outfit on curvy America! Where did she get this outfit? I have to know!

Of course! I love high-waisted skirts. Although I sometimes wear high-waisted a-lines because I’ve got big hips.

Jenny on

she looks so pretty. she really knows how to flatter her figure, and makes it work every time. the skirt looks very classy and stylish. GREAT CHOICE!

Absolutely, it makes her waist appear teeny-tiny and it gives her that va-voom look. I am curvy and I can’t wait to try out this trend and be a sexy, voluptuous, bombshell.

I don’t like this look for her body type. It draws too much attention to her lower body and makes her hip look wider.

I would wear a skirt like that if I had the curves and the waist for it.

Surprisingly, it looks good even more shocking, is that it looks good on someone short. Isn’t she short??
