Would You Wear Jessica Simpson's High-Waisted Pants?

04/18/2007 at 01:34 PM ET

High-waisted pants have been lurking on the fashion horizon for a few seasons — either you are thrilled for the break from low-rise jeans and the threat of muffin tops or you are terrified at letting your torso be swallowed by your waistband. Jessica Simpson is apparently up for the challenge, stepping out for a night of dinner and dancing in a pair of distinctly high-waisted chambray pants and a clingy ivory turtleneck. While we might have picked a pair of pants that didn’t have pleated pockets on the hips, we tip our hats to Jessica for trying a different look and a hot new trend. But we want to know what you think! Tell us: Would you wear high-waisted pants like Jessica? Do you like the look on her?

Jessica’s chest is too big to wear pants like this. I give her credit for trying to make this style work but, the first rule of wearing high-waisters is to make sure that your chest does not hang over the waistline.Ladies,lets leave this style on the runway where it belongs.

These are awful, there is a reason high waisted clothing is never around for long. She looks like a cross between a little old lady and a pregnant woman from the 50s. She’s not fat, just a little heavy right now, and these do not flatter her figure. Someone should have stopped her.

NO, she didn’t. oh jess. why. maybe nick took all the mirrors with him when he left because her appearance has gone downhill since the breakup.
this look is AWFUL.

Brenda on

No way! They are very unflattering on her. I do not like the look at all!

Yael on

Does she own a mirror? Some friends she’s got… they could at least tell her they look heinous out of love and sympathy.

Now thats some serious camel toe! You have to admit it looks like she has it! Those pants are NASTY and her boobs look like they are sagging to her belly!

osh on

what was she thinking??? she looks pregnant….

Rachel Alcina on

Are uou serious???? Ewwwww, god…. NO!!!! With the weight she has put on these are the last thing she should wear, well that and that ugly red beach dress. The style needs to be burned. What happen to Jessica??? Did she fire her stylist??? Does she have a mirror?????

High waist is really cute with the right style. I love it with my skirts.
Those pants ARE ugly tho.

I LOVE Jessica…but I HATE those pants. I also wish she would go back to being a blonde. It just looks better.

On another note, if I see any more “bohemian chic” looks from Mary Kate Olsen, I think I’ll scream. That hobo, bum look is just plain ugly and wrong. I absolutely can’t stand the way she dresses. I just had to get that out…

Back to JS, I have always loved her sense of style, but these pants are not for her or anyone else really – high waisted pants are just ugly and you’ll also NEVER catch me in a pair of flats of any kind…
