Work + Play – High Waist Trousers

I love playing with menswear-inspired clothing and have a slight obsession with high waisted pants. For this post, I wanted to bring you two options for a Work and a Play look wearing a pair of high waist trousers! While there’s a limited stock on these, I wanted to give you a few options I’ve found online here!

High waist crop pants are great for mid-seasons, spring and fall especially but can be worn all year round in many locations with a mild climate. They add a certain relaxed chicness to your look. I like wearing mine with graphic tees, sweaters, sweatshirts, button-ups, and leather jackets. It’s easy to make it work appropriate and tone it down for the after hours.

Pairing the trouser with an ombre Leopard printed 100% cashmere sweater. Featuring rib neck, hem, and cuff. Relaxed fit, dry clean only. It’s truly the softest thing I’ve ever worn.

You can style this trouser with so many sweater styles, go for thinner ones for layering with blazers or cardigans, and thick ones for a bolder statement!

For play, I’m pairing the trousers with an oversized sweatshirt, which has also been super popular, so I’ll link a few options for graphic sweatshirts here:
