You say it correctly: both trends are still widely seen on the streets, and can happily co-exist. Cara Delevingne has just landed a major Puma campaign where she wears low-waisted trousers and shows her underwear – the typical gangsta style has become a classic.
If you look at the recent Fashion Weeks though, you’ll see everything from the 90’s. Belted sweaters, ankle jewellery, padded shoulders, colour blocking, high-waisted trousers and skirts were seen on almost every blogger, fashion editor, celebrity and street styler. High waist is not the only trend to copy, but yes, it’s the up-and-coming one. Below, a gallery of examples.
