Riding High

Sky-high waistlines create a long-legged silhouette with updated vintage appeal.

The Disco Shorts: They may be denim, but the ultra-high waist, dark wash and goldtone hardware of these shorts make them feel '70s-glam. This look features a plain gray cotton tee tucked into the Disco Shorts, black tights to make the ensemble more fall-friendly, black oxford booties and an oversize scarf to finish the look.

The Skinny Leg: Though high-waisted skinny jeans look best on the super tall, I love to sport them anyway. This look features a gray scoop-neck tee tucked into ultra-high-waist jeans, a boxy '80s jacket in a rich autumn hue to offset the tight fit of the jeans, my go-to black ankle boots and plenty of gold bling to accentuate the edginess of the look.

The Wide Leg: High-waisted wide legs are ideal for a petite stature like mine. This look features a thin sweater in a lustrous goldenrod for fall, medium-wash jeans with a cute covered button, an oversize cardigan, peep-toe stilettos and a gold chain. The roomy cardigan and wide jeans combine to give the look a laidback, effortless feel.
