It’s True: High-Rise Paperbag Shorts Are THAT Good

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

I’ve been super intrigued by the whole paperbag-waist trend. As a pear-shaped lady myself, I thought there was pretty much NO WAY that this silhouette would look good on me. Extra fabric around the waist? Pleats? Hard pass. Until I read the reviews . . . and people LOVE these shorts. Even more helpful was all of the pictures of girls wearing them. Tall, short, thin, curvy: these shorts literally looked good on everyone I saw. Too good to be true? I decided to find out for myself. (Spoiler alert: I love them.)

I think the reason they work so well is because they’re high-rise and while the tie emphasizes your waist, it also kind of camouflages any excess poochiness. This summer I’ll also be wearing them with camis and bodysuits, but for now long sleeves are required. I could throw a blazer or denim jacket on over this outfit or wear them with a lightweight sweater for a little extra warmth.
