Jhalak Bhatia, a fashion designer loves high waist cotton pants, “It’s the go-to outfit for summer, I would say. And it’s not just about comfort anymore, as it’s totally in fashion nowadays. You can find these pants in stripes, floral prints, polka dots and there are plain coloured ones. The best way to wear it would be with any funky printed tee that can be tucked in, and you could pair it with some jewellery like a golden hoop earring, a bracelet — a chic, classy look for the summers.” And it’s great for all body sizes as well! Ayushi Tyagi, a fashion design and merchandising student at NIFT says, “High waisted pants are super cool as they hide love handles, belly bulges, and front flab. They keep shirts properly tucked-in. And also, they don’t give you a muffin top or show a plumber’s crack. So yeah! You can wear them with crop tops not crop, tucked in tops, long jackets and even with the kurtis.”

Sonia Thiyam, a city-based fashion influencer and blogger opines, “These pants are never out of trend. I personally think it’s a staple! It frames one’s body perfectly. High-waisted pants are timeless and classic! The best thing about them is that they can be styled in all possible ways! You could wear them for work as formals (chinos) as they look super classy. You could do a high-waisted denim flare which is so vintage and chic! High-waisted denims with crop tops or slogan tees and canvas shoes or boots too.”

Nikita Chanda, a stylist thinks that the pants are the go-to for a busy woman who works nine to nine, “Pants are a necessity and fancier pants are even more of a necessity when it comes to fashion. Now, high-waist pants have been trending for a while, but cotton pants in particular are the thing for this summer. The best part is that you can pair it up with the most basic tees, and look stylish. If you’re out the whole day, and still want to look presentable; this is the go-to.”
