High-waisted is wonderful. It makes legs look longer and hugs the female body in all the right areas. It looks elegant and always pulled together… BUT sometimes I have to revert to my low-cuts, for the one simple reason: I need some breathing space. (I didn’t spend all these years on yoga just to return to an anxious upper thorax breathing, thank you very much.)
See the black sweater? Buying it in an Oxfam shop came with the most wonderful conversation… 'Cool' I think, 'a nice cropped angora sweater for £2. I’ll have it, please.' I meander to the cash which is covered by a friendly, elderly gentleman "Oh, nice find," he says "What is it?". "Isn’t it lovely? It’s angora wool which is made from rabbit hair – so soft!" I enthuse. Blank look from him: "I see, but WHAT IS IT?" – "Oh… It’s a SWEATER." ('Duh!' No, I didn’t say 'duh', he was really nice, in his 70s and obviously new in his job) (I might have looked 'duh' though.)
But what about you? Have you thrown out all the old hipsters to become a pure high-waisted girl this winter?
