The high-waist trend could not have hit at a more perfect time. Gone are my younger dancing days and with them my days of super low-rise, ass crack-baring pants with tiny little inch-long zippers. I find that the older I get, the closer my pants get to my rib cage, and I’m fine with this.
Where we once gambled with a full moon every time we sat down, our butts are now tightly secured under a solid foot of additional fabric. Embrace it, ladies. (Sorry, guys.)
Pairing high-waisted anything with a crop top is my current idea of life on the (securely barricaded) edge. Just enough skin at precisely the smallest part of my body for me to be like, “Yeah I still got it” and just enough coverage everywhere else as a friendly and humbling reminder that I am almost 30.
