High Hopes for high waisted jeans

Despite the long, harsh weeks of cold and bitterness, the clouds are parting and making way for long overdue sunshine that should bring with it some warm weather. With the introduction of some kind weather means spring is not too far off!


But why is everyone so pumped for warm weather and spring clothing? The answer is because it provides an opportunity to bring to the spotlight high-waisted shorts.

Whether society likes this sky rocketing trend or not, high-waisted shorts are becoming more and more popular among teens everywhere. To make the appeal for them even greater, the style of these shorts definitely doesn’t fall short in options.

Extremely versatile, high-waisted shorts come ripped, patterned, in different colors, neon, textured, and even in just the plain and simple traditional jean appearance.

However, to think that high-waisted shorts are a new trend  among teens would be wrong.

In the past up until the 1990s, women wore nothing but these types of shorts. At this period of time, low-cut jeans and shorts weren’t even recognized in the fashion world nor were they even acceptable to wear!

High-waisted shorts can be worn with almost anything, and that is the beauty and the charm that they have on fashion forward individuals.

About the Contributor
Orion Schlosser
Orion Schlosser, Leaflet Editor-in-Chief
Hello, my name is Orion Schlosser and I am one of the Editor-in-Chief’s of our online magazine, The Leaflet. I am accompanied by my sister, Zoe Schlosser who is the other Editor-in-Chief of The Leaflet. I have been apart of Journalism for four years and I have loved every minute of it. I have learned everything from how to write an article to how to design full pages of info graphics and quick reads. As a senior, I am looking forward to making the most of this school year and involving myself in anything and everything that interests me. One organization that I am involved in and have been involved in since freshman year is Unified for Uganda. I am the Sponsorship Coordinator, meaning I am ultimately responsible for finding families, groups, or individuals who have an interest in sponsoring a Ugandan child in need. By sponsoring, one child receives an education, clothes, a meal a day, medical attention, and supplies for school. By sponsoring, one child is given the opportunity to live a better life. In my free time, when I am not busy with Journalism or U4U, I enjoy being with my friends and family, making the most of the time I have with them. I love going to school events such as football, soccer, and lacrosse games. I have learned throughout high school to do what makes me happy and to live in the moment. This rings true for me especially as I prepare myself for the change I will have to make once this school year comes to an end and as college approaches. I always keep in mind that situations always seem worse in the moment and that it is easier to accept the way things rather than forcing things to be what they are not. Breathe and keep things simple and life will continue on.
