If you been following my style evolution then you would have noticed my love for anything high-waist, especially trousers. I'm not particularly curvy, I believe my body is proportionate especially when I maintain my average weight but the truth is I generally like to hide in baggy clothes.
Today, I'll be dishing tips on how I rock my favorite closet staple, High waist trousers. Now I've been asked where I get my trousers from? Well that easy, vintage never fails. I got all these pairs while I was in Thailand but in my post on how to find the best vintage items, I mentioned several Nigerian stores that you could possibly get trousers such as these. Who knows maybe I'll launch my own vintage store.

Tip 1: Belt it in
My favorite way to rock high waist pants is to simply tuck in and belt it, I believe that's when the real beauty of the trousers comes out. Also belting it creates a balance especially when you're going for a bit of an over size look. Also cinching in your waist is a great way to give the impression of a smaller waist.
Tip 2: Crop it Up
Another great way to rock this staple piece is to pair it with a crop top. Crop tops are great for dressing down what would otherwise be a formal outfit. You could always leave a bit of your mid-section to show but I prefer to cover up everything.
Tip 3: Turtle Necks
I can't leave out my turtle neck tops which is a closet essential, I love how these wardrobe basic add an understated elegance to outfit pairing. Not to mention with turtle you don't need to accessorize with a necklace.
Tip 4: Belted Scarf
The belted scarf look is a great way to spice up formal trousers, while still adding warmth in colder climates.
Tip 5: Off-shoulder
Pairing high waist pants with off-shoulder tops is another way to add a bit of sexiness to an outfit. Off-shoulder tops are also great for dressing to a more relaxed environment or maybe a nighttime function.
Tip 6: Blazer
Last but not least, blazers are great for adding structure and formality to an outfit. Just be sure to pair a blazer that has a cinched waist especially when your opting for slightly flared trousers.
