Celebrity Style Find: High Waisted Pants

There are some fashion trends that just don’t make the transition from runway into the real world very well.  Case in point is the currently popular high waisted pants that have been popping up all across Hollywood.  Rather than look high fashion, the high waisted look just has us feeling nostalgic for all the bad fashion trends of the 70s.

The fact that the high waisted look is more dated than  dramatic isn’t stopping this summer’s crop of celebrity moms from pulling on a pair to channel the days of disco.  Whether it’s a pair of ill fitting high waisted jeans, a dramatic high waisted slack or a cinched up skirt, real world moms should just take a pass on the high waisted look.

Here’s a look at how celebrity moms are trying to rock the high waisted look this summer….
