High-waisted panties have had a hard time in the last few years, older, conservative women and lovers of the pin-up look being the only ones that would ever wear them. And it makes sense: the skinny jeans were the only piece of denim that girls would wear, leggings all of a sudden became pants, and clothes have kept getting more and more curve-hugging… These trends also meant finding underwear that would be invisible under clothes, and made of as little material as possible.
However, the silhouettes are changing: the boyfriend jeans is hotter than ever (au revoir, beloved skinnies!), the cuts are evolving, and feminine doesn’t mean skin-tight and flesh-showing anymore. Sensuality has taken a new turn, and that shift also gives us more freedom in our choice of underwear; there is a newfound sexiness in the idea of covering up. Yes, the high waist brief is back in all its glory, and we’re all for it!
Why are we obsessed with this timeless piece?
> It is feminine without being too “out there”.
> It can act as sexy shapewear.
> It never goes out of style.
Here are 3 new fresh ways to take your high waist briefs to the streets!
1. Under boyfriend jeans
All the It Girls are doing it! A pair of distressed jeans, a cool crop top and your favorite panties will turn you into a street style star. Bonus points for the funky make-up or messy hairstyle.
2. Under a see-through dress
Now, don’t try to tell us that high waist briefs can’t be sexy! Go for a textured see-through dress to add richness to the look; while you can absolutely play with color, we love the black tone-on-tone effect.
3. As pants (yes, for real)
If you’re feeling extra-confident, channel your inner man repeller and take inspiration from Leandra Medine: who needs pants when you have a super trendy shirt, killer shoes and a cooler-than-cool attitude?
