GET HIGH WAISTED
A note on high-waisted shorts and pants. Make sure they come all the way up to your belly button and don’t dig into your waist. If the top falls in between where a low-rise and a high waist would be, it cuts up your figure making your hips look like a big box.

Rule of thumb: really high-waisted or low rise.
Another thought. Usually the high waist looks better when you show it off instead of trying to hide it with a long shirt. So if you’re embracing this trend, tuck in your top, maybe wear a belt (depending on the look). Let the pants/shorts lengthen your body and show off an hour-glass figure.
