Once in a while, everyone wishes to try something new. One thing that was hugely popular in the past and is all set to make a major comeback in the fashion world is the bell bottoms. Don’t be surprised if you spot your favourite actress in a high rise bottom in her next public appearance. With the wedding season approaching, bridal wedding high rise corsets are also expected to be the talk of the town.

If you are looking forward to refreshing your wardrobe with the onset of summer, then you have stumbled upon the right piece of information.

Here we bring you top 7 hot, fresh and exclusive ways of wearing high rise bottoms. You cannot just team them up with anything lying in your closet after all!



The best partner of a high rise bottom is certainly a tucked in top. The style statement they have made in the past has been absolutely irreplaceable till date and the look has made quite a rage among the celebrities as well. The tucked in top provides you with an excellent opportunity to show off the high waist.  Plain or checked square shirts completely tucked in with the jean buttoned over it can be the perfect office look you have been craving for.



There is absolutely no denying the fact that bell bottoms have a huge volume. Hence, avoid adding more volume to the scene. Wearing a high rise bottom with an oversize top, sweater or a blouson top is a strict NO! Similarly, high rise bottoms don’t go very well with short jackets. Your top competing with your bottom for attention won’t present a very beautiful scene. The two clothing items should complement each other. Moreover, it would become too much for you to carry. Covered in so much of clothing on a sunny day would not be comfortable for you. However, if you are crazy for blouson tops, go for a sheer blouse instead.

Body hugging crop tops go well with high rise bottoms. In fact, they are perfect for high waist corset jeans. A high neck crop top, a thin-striped blouse crop top or even a regular sleeveless crop top would give you an admirable look for a day out with your friends or a casual drinks get-together. Crop tops have been stealing the show since ages. Including a few in your wardrobe for the coming season would by far, be the best decision regarding your clothing choices. An even interesting way to sport a crop top with a high rise bottom is to wear a long cardigan or a shrug on it. This look is perfect for petite girls as it gives an illusion of being tall.

Celebrities like Kristen Stewart and Kim Kardashian love crop tops the most after celebrity designer corsets.

Wearing a high rise bottom with a shiny top, cardigan or shirt is not much recommended. The extra highlighting that it brings along adds a lot to the already extra high rise jeans. Making you just a showpiece or rather a chicken lollipop, to be precise, the glitter lays extra emphasis on every nook and corner of your body. Rather than pairing them up with a glittery tank top, team them up with a vintage corset. Not only will it emphasize your body shape, but also will look quite classy and complement the retro look of the bell bottom.



Accessories can entirely enhance your look or make it fall flat. Wearing a high rise bottom with a pair of round sunglasses or summer boots is a good idea. Ankle boots worn with a striped formal shirt paired with a high rise bottom can be a good look for your office parties or even a normal day at work. Too many bracelets or large necklaces would kill the look and make the whole look old fashioned. Similarly, you should consider skipping large buttons, wide cuffs or stuff with loud prints. Opt for thin belts instead of wide ones. Instead of shoes, consider wearing wedges and heels with these bottoms.



Another way to rock the party in a bell bottom is to pair it with a tank top. A loose, simple, naturally flowing tank top can become a high rise bottom’s perfect partner. Not only it complements the jean but also looks absolutely stunning as it does not emphasize the bust much and lets the bottom steal the show. A body-hugging corset top looks equally stunning with it. A light coloured floral printed corset top with dark denim gives you a completely different look for any sunny day. Another interesting idea is to wear a body shaper corset under a tank top and completing the look with a black high rise bottom.


At last, does not matter what you pair them with, wearing the right size matters a lot! Wear the right length. Flood pants or street sweepers are not much in trend. Let them be a little loose and flowing. The location of the hem also affects the look. These small differences actually make a large difference to your look. The corset you chose to pair should be suitable for your body type and must not be extra tight.

A high rise bottom is a very versatile piece of clothing. When paired with different articles it can give a completely different look. For instance, pairing it with a bralette top and a biker jacket can give you an instant chic look. Wear a denim shirt with a denim bottom for a classy look.

Lastly, a pro-tip- Experiment and find the look that you are comfortable in and suits you the best.
