How To Do Vintage: High-Waisted Pants

Last week we showed you how to wear a vintage full skirt, and today, once again with the glam guidance of Rachel Zoe Studio, we’re tackling high-waisted pants. Borrowing a pair of Yves Saint Laurent trousers from Rachel’s personal closet (maj!), the styling team dressed The Zoe Report editor Jessica Amento in an outfit that’s perfect for the office. Here’s tips on how you can mimic this groovy-glam look!

Get The Look

Silk Blouse

Reiss Contrast Silk Top, $210

A modern blouse is an effortless pick to complement tall pants; tuck it in slightly in the front to show off a high-waist silhouette.

High-Waisted Pants

J. Crew Tall Hutton Trouser, $168

Can't find the perfect vintage pair? Cheat the look with a similar style, then take them to the tailor to ensure a flawless fit. Key points to look for are a high waist and flared him.

Bright Bag

Marc by Marc Jacobs Calamity Rei Bag, $515

A bold blue handbag serves as a pop of color in this monochrome outfit, plus the structured shape brings added polish to the look.

Reach for a bright bag to bring new life to your more neutral, pre-loved pieces.

Keep the retro vibe going with a pair of unique shades like this geometric set.

Platform Booties

Choosing sky-high platform heels in the same color as your trousers continues in elongating your stems!

Gold Jewelry

Is there anything more glam than gold jewelry? We think not! Jennifer Fisher's luxury baubles fit the bill.

Leather Jacket

Top off an office-minded outfit with a worn leather jacket in a neutral hue for a cool, youthful touch.
