High-waisted shorts

Just because high-waisted shorts are inspired by the styles of the 1960s doesn't mean you have to wear pants your grandmother would adore.

The iconic TV show "Mad Men" has inspired many fashion trends. High-waisted shorts are another retro style that has jumped from the small screen onto clothing racks. High-waisted shorts can be intimidating, but have no fear -- it is possible to make this look work for you. Because these pants fit on the smaller part of your waist, they'll give you an hourglass shape -- even if you don't have model-length legs. Find a pair of high-waisted shorts suited for your body type, and you can pull off this classic vintage look.
