Would You Wear Mischa Barton's High-Waisted Jeans?

04/24/2007 at 01:04 PM ET

Are we really looking forward to an entire summer of stars in high-waisted pants? First Jessica Simpson stepped out in her ribcage-hugging pants, and now the ever eccentricly dressed Mischa Barton has taken to the streets of London, channeling the ’70s in seriously high-waisted jeans over a Fleetwood Mac t-shirt. Sadly, this isn’t the most flattering trend we’ve seen in a while — and here we were so excited for our wide-leg denim to be in style! Tell us: What do you think of Mischa’s high-waisted jeans? Would you wear them?

i like them and i agree with H, so 70′s!

I think they’re fine. I wouldn’t wear them, but I applaud her individuality: I’m tired of everyone looking like clones of eachother!

You have got to be kidding. This “trend” is disgusting.

KT from Cda on

Hair yes. Jeans no. You could not pay me enough to wear those jeans!

Sofia on

No Way…

Lea on

Hell no! Those pants are hideous!! They are completely unflattering (even on one as thin as Mischa), and just look generally awful! Why on earth does this poor girl insist upon wearing some of these awful clothes? She’s a pretty girl – she really ought to dress like it!

I predict this will be a very fleeting trend, so I wouldn’t waste any of my money on the style of jeans.

Amber on

I think they make a very fit person look bigger then they’re, so I say no….

Terra on

I think that this fashion makes even the smallest of frames look as though they have put on a few pounds….. In saying this > HECK NO!!!

Lorna on

These pants remind me of “mom” jeans. I think they look horrible on everyone, all shapes and sizes. This is one trend nobody should even consider wearing again.
