We've already made our love for high-waisted shorts crystal clear, but to add to our conviction, we've zeroed in on 10 street stylers who've put their Summer spin on the high-rise variety. We love this retro silhouette and with the addition of a tucked-in semisheer blouse and summery espadrille wedges, it has all the makings of Rita Hayworth's bombshell style. Or you can easily opt for a modern interpretation by adding this season's must-have white blazer and a slouchy tee. Need just one more reason to try the trend? High-waisted shorts elongate your legs and who doesn't want model-esque gams? Now, click through to get a closer look at how these street-style pros perfected the art of rocking high-waist shorts.
While Miranda Kerr took her high-waisted black shorts on a tropical vacation, Lauren Conrad wore hers out on the town with an Alexander Wang top. It goes to show how versatile high-waisted black shorts are. They can weather extreme heat and go party hopping with you, too!
As exemplified by both Miranda and Lauren, you should tuck your top into your shorts, to show off the high waist. Just make sure your top is not too frilly or loud; the high-waist style is already a tad trendy on its own.
There are two reasons I'm envious of Australian model Miranda Kerr. First, she's dating and vacationing with Orlando Bloom and second, she has legs the length of the Eiffel Tower! Now that I got that off my chest, we can move on to her cool, casual style. On her aforementioned romantic getaway, Miranda exuded an easy-going vibe that all vacation-goers should master. She threw on a white V-neck tee, black high-waisted shorts, and some wedge espadrilles. No fuss, no fluff — just the way a vacation ought to be.
I love shopping but I hate being indoors when the weather is so nice outside. A flea market adventure is the perfect remedy to my predicament and I'm always down for a vintage hunt — who knows what treasures I'll find!
I started you off with this Matiko Iva Sandals ($80) because I love the huarache-inspired cut and the flat heel will keep me comfortable all day long while I scrounge for goodies. Let's see what you all came up with.

We've all learned it's difficult to pull off high-waisted anything. But fifthofapril shows us high-waisted shorts done right. The key is to keep the rest of the ensemble minimal. And that's what she did with her white ruffled blouse, patent bag and shoes.
Here's what she's wearing:
- Top: Inner Child
- Shorts: Odyn
- Shoes: Steve Madden "The Hot" Tortoise flats
