Its not news if you’ve been an avid reader of the blog to know that I am fool for women in shorts . I still don’t get the train of effects I EXPERIENCE when my eyes register the opposite sex in shorts . Its been some odd years since I saw the image of janet jackson in high waist shorts in poetic justice , but I’m glad to say the effect has been timeless with no signs of medication in sight . I love the tailored shorts ,boy shorts and any other form they come in (yes that bad) , but I think we can without regret or second giessing blame janet jackson for my pure joy with high waist. I don’t know when this trend came back but all I can say is amen(say it twice) . A pair of shorts always give off that free spirit tone cos its so laid back and spells out casual in every language . I love the way women don’t keep certain style boxed up, its like they take the “how many things can you do with rice?” route too seriously and I love it ! .
♣ The recent presence of the high waist shorts has been evrywhere from the streets to the runways , and this has in my opinion taken away the old image of the high waist (either you see urs on a a group of pretty girls in the 6o’s or you see flashes of r kelly and women in high waist shorts causing traffic) .

The 40’s woman thought the average pants weren’t modest enough, showed off too much skin, think about how ur skin is exposed when u bend over in low waist pants.

The Fad fickled, but later to return in the eighties and through the urban scene in the nineties.
The flat tire the hw had on the road earlier was that it was make women appear thicker in the buttocks region and the waist which were rather unflattering as exemplified by Mischa Barton, who I think would be happily lynched by the men of today…I think anything that compliments the buttocks area should be put in a museum . HW shorts are perfect for those who are heavier on the bottom as they highlight that area of the body. They are perfect for any body type because they cling to your hips and fall naturally on your waist.
