High Waisted Linen - 100 Million Wrinkles

As the title would suggest I am suffering from wrinkle overload. That says it all right there.
Moving on:
How do you feel about high-waisted pants? I haven't been wearing them myself (until now) and I am not sure how I feel about them. They are kind of awkward. Perhaps this is just my perception, but I find that while they keep a waist looking tiny they almost over-accentuate the hips/butt area.
What are your feelings? Have any of you been rocking the high-waisted pant/short?

PS. I didn't see this until now but Steffy from Steffy's Pros and Cons posted a Sponsor Spotlight yesterday and I'm a part of it. Thank for the shout out Steffy.

  1. Those pants are so lovely, the color and fabric makes them really delicate! You look fabulous, great post! lots of love from your follower, Veena <3

  2. What wrinkles?
    Those pants look great on you but I think that my body is not suited for them.
    Or maybe is just a bug in my mind!

  3. They don't look wrinkled and are a great color and cut for warm weather!

  4. I am posting here my reply to you comment so that you can read it!
    "Hey Lydia!I also thought that you have been blogging for a long time due to the high quality of your blog!
    As far as facebook is concerned it is an Italian page but I guess that they comment on people all around the world. Language is Italian and they can be really nasty sometimes. However they have the merit of criticizing some bloggers attitudes that were not meant to be for this world, such as being sponsored to review positively this or that brand etc. They also teased me but I had fun!"

  5. Hello Lydia, thanks for the lovely comment you left on my blog. I first learnt about that blog through the sartorialist last year and have been hooked since then. I think that is some of the best writing in the blogoshere and more people need to know about it.

    As for today's outfit, you look fabulous as always and i love those pants. Great styling and location too.

  6. Das Shirt find ich besonders schön!
    Sieht echt toll aus

  9. Thanks everyone!
    @Francesca - Thanks for replying. I am sorry to hear that they were making fun of you too. How nasty of people to do this! What a great compliment - probably one of the best I have had so far! I have tried really hard to make this blog as aesthetically pleasing and professional as possible right from the beginning - thank you for your encouragement.
    @Nyanzi - Thanks! Underemployed is a really great blog - I agree that the writing is so well done everyone should be reading it.

  10. Those pants look good on you! Hope you can buy the bag soon:)

  13. Hi Lydia, I am now following ur blog as I find it really good.
    I am in love with linen trousers, but i don't like high waist too much as it wrinkles more as other models.
    White linen means summer! and i feel fine wearing it in hot days!

  14. I really like the high-waisted pants. You have a pretty silhouette with. Its very 70's.
    I have one pant like that and I'm feel great in it.

    Thanks for your comment. Yeah it's a tea bags) For Slavic people it's like a tradition to drink tea and for it's also a symbol of past because it's an already used tea bags)

  15. They look good on you!

  16. You look great! you are so right about the wrinkles but linen is beautiful. pants look beautiful on you so I have a couple waiting for me to re-use them .... may give it a try.

  17. thanks for shouting out to me girl! youre too sweet! love the white bag and pants, adorable!!! and btw that dress is actually a 27 inch waist, i measure the garments lying flat, so the actual diameter is double :) hope that helps!

  19. I love linen, perfect for summer but very difficult to wear because of the wrinkles.

    Thanks for your lovely comment

  20. Beautiful!!!!

    XOXO ♥

  21. Love high-waisted and that looks great on you!


  22. I guess I've been around long enough to see the high waist come and go once already. Its funny what one thiks is terrible at one time and then you grow to like it as trends change. All that to say, I don't mind the look at all. What goes around comes around. what I LOVE in this post is the bracelet!

  23. I actually love high-waisted pants, yet only have two pairs, one which have buttons on the fall front. I think they are tricky to wear but I love them here. Linen although forever wrinkles is one of my favourite materials. I love the way it drapes. Nice outfit!-xxoo

  24. I think the pants look great! What a great find. I love linen for the summer.

    Stop by my blog some time at!

  25. cute trousers and I love the top! you look great!

  26. You look amazing in high-waisted trousers! And if I've learned anything from history, it's that we women have been attempting to find ways to enhance our hips and butt areas through our clothing for centuries. Do you remember the bustle?:D Are they comfortable to wear? I just bought a highwaisted skirt so I'm going to attempt the highwaised look for the first time! xx
    Sincerely, Ashley (Yeah, this is how I'll be commenting for the next little while:)

  27. I would definitely wear a pair of high-waisted pants if I could find a pair, and find one that fit right. I would love a tummy hider like those! Girl, I know how you feel about the wrinkles. There are just some materials that no matter waht you do if you breath they get all wrinkly...annoying

  30. Hi everyone! thanks so much for all of your comments - I apologize for not replying sooner. Work has been exhausting lately so I haven't been online as much as I would have liked.

  31. You've won my heart....I am an absolute linen LOVER! The more crushed, the better! This is a beautiful outfit, very elegant & classy. The shoes are perfect! As for high-waist pants....I just cannot pull them off. I've got a "Kardashian" or "j-Lo" butt....and high waists OVER exaggerate it, if that makes sense?
    Lovely post.

  32. I want some high waisted pants!! :)

  33. Nice post, thank you for sharing. You have really imparted useful knowledge. A very useful post I must say. Awesome content. I bookmarked it for future reference.
