Pulling em up high: Keira Knightley and Christina Aguilera sport sassy high-waisted pants

High-waisted pants are a fashion classic that screen legend Katherine Hepburn could pull off fashionably well in the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s.

For a more modern look side towards the skinny legs or straight legged high waisted pants. Keep the wide-legged high-waisted pants for days when you are wearing sky high heels.

Since they hit the catwalk a few years ago, I didn’t think they could infiltrate mainstream dressing. But part of me is glad I was wrong, because I love seeing how some stylish people pull it off.

Christina Aguilera recently slipped on a pair and still managed to look stunningly sexy, while Keira Knightley wore them just a few days ago and looked very sassy and stylish.

Keep the top half of your outfit sleek and simple, patterns and too much detailing is not a good look with the almost-empire fit of high-waist pants!
