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. i’m so sick of seeing people’s butt cracks hanging out of their low waisted jeans! plus its kind of retro! high waisted jeans are all my mom used to wear when she was a teenager in the 70s. :)

High wasted jeans, spandex, leg warmers, straight hair, bangs. whatever. Any individual needs to decide what makes them feel good to wear and be seen in.

The extremes like these jeans or the lower than low rise jeans are tough for the mere mortal to pull off.

I’m delighted the high waisted jeans are back in style. For the last several years, everything has been a hip hugger which for someone with a heavier waist like me is NOT attractive. In fact I barely HAVE a waist. At least with these, I don’t have to worry about my pants falling down, and I have a JLo booty which tends to look good in this style.

For years now I’ve had to wear shirts over my jeans because I couldn’t count on my pants to stay where they were put. I plan to load up on them while they’re in the marketplace because no doubt everyone will be back to the hip hugger, ‘ya better shave your privates BEFORE you put on your pants’ style soon enough…ok if you’re a size zero but for real women…gimme a break.

And Mischa looks adorable in them.

I would never wear them, that’s like asking me if i would wear shoulder pads if she wore them.
NO WAY IN! The are ugly as hell…
but that’s just me

I normally like anything retro… but, these jeans are UGLY!! There is no way these jeans can be comfortable..up under her ribcage. YUC! Hopefully, this is the last we will see of these jeans!!

Tara on

They look terrible on everyone. Why bring that garbage back?

laura on

normally i can look away and not care about what she is wearing but this?! these pants are UGLY!!!!!!!!!!!!! these pants and the skinny jeans make me cringe to look at. i’ll be sticking to my low rise jeans.

I wonder if a free pair of granny panties come with those mom’s jeans????

TM on

Horrendous! Something that disgusting should be considered criminal!
