Every lady has her own body structure and body shape. When you are going to wear a high waisted short, consider the shape and structure of your body to select a high waisted short that flatters your figure.
Pick a waist Height based on your tuck length:
When you go to the store to buy your high waisted short, consider the height of your tuck or torso. For ladies with longer torso, opt for high waisted shorts while those whose torso is shorter; opt for shorter waist heights that will flatter your body shape.

The color of your high waisted short will determine the look you want to create. For ladies who like to look sexy and chic in high waisted shorts, opt for high waisted shorts in pastel color, pinstripes, polka dot or floral prints. Classy ladies who like to look elegant and dresser, opt for shorts in neutral color like white, brown, black or old navy.

Irrespective of the look you want to create, you need to choose a top that matches with the color of your high waisted shorts. This will enable you create a casual apparel eye-catching to whoever spots you.

They also complement the tone of your skin so if you have a pair, pair it with high waisted shorts.

When going to the beach in summer or for a drink with your pals in the evening, flip-flops, sandals or flats will be the best choice to pair with high waisted shorts.

Look more feminine by accessorizing with a short cute necklace, and a few armlets. Dark sunnies will add more style when complement with the attire. Wear boots such as combat boots or flat ankle boots with this kind of attire. Black boots will complement the black leather handbag that you are to add to finish the trend.
TIPS ON HOW TO MAKE HIGH WAISTED SHORTS AT HOME
It can be challenging sometime to choose a nice high waisted short that will fit and flatter your body.

Or perhaps you don’t have enough bucks to buy your favorite dream high waisted short! Read this post till the end coz we will share with you the all the steps, methodology and tips you need to know on how you can make high waisted shorts locally at home.
Get a pair of old pants:
Surely you can make high waisted shorts from any fabric of old or damaged high waisted pants. However, as per this post, we will consider using a pair of high waisted jean.
Get a high waisted jean of the right waist height that you don’t mind cutting it up. The waist height should fit and flatter your body shape.
Note: Don’t cut up the jean that you still like to wear, go for high waisted jeans that you are sure you don’t mind cutting them up. The high waisted jean should be comfortable and you should like the look of its waist. Try picturing out how it will look when cut.
Indicate desired length of your high waisted short:
Wear your old or damaged waisted jean that you are going to cut. Now mark where you want to cut using a mark on the front and at the back. The reason as to why you should mark when you are wearing the jean is to get the accurate and desired height of the short. Three quarter high waisted shorts look great and give a chic and sexy outfit by making your legs look longer. However, when marking you should make half-length your thigh to give room for errors and in case you want to hem the short.
Alternatively, you can wear a pair of your favorite shorts over the old jean that you are going to cut to get the desired length. Mark a little below the length of your favorite shorts to leave room for errors and hemming. Otherwise the high waisted short will be too short to make other things other than the legs peep underneath the short which isn’t cool.
Put off the old waisted jean that you will cut and put it on a flat ground such as a table or on the floor. Use a straight object such as a rule to mark a straight light on both sides of each leg. This will help you get a perfect uniform & balanced high waisted short which look great on you after cutting it.
Now carefully cut the jean along the marked line coz if you do any mistake while cutting, the result is irreversible. Use a sharp pair of scissors especially when cutting through thick or denim jeans.
Add flare to the short by making it look older. High waisted shorts look great when they are made to look older. Damage it a little and put a few holes on its front.
You can now wear your high waisted short just the way it is cut or you can hem it. Hemming is optional and if you want to hem your high waisted short, folds the edge of the short inwards to your desired length. Use a needle and a thread to stick the hem.
