High-waisted shorts

With temperatures rising to about 80 degrees this week, it is finally time to put away the Uggs and sweatshirts, and take out the summer clothes.

High-waisted shorts are the new style of shorts that will be worn a lot this spring and upcoming summer season. They are making their return back from the 1980s.

“I wear them because they are cute, comfortable, and I can wear them with almost anything,” said sophomore Alenna Winfield.

“I wear them because they are actually quite comfortable,” said freshman Kendall Kaufmann.

These new, hip, shorts are sold in many women clothing stores, and can be anywhere from $20-$80. Because few are so pricey, some students find an alternative way to get their hands on a nice pair.

“I only paid about $3-$4 because I got mine at a thrift shop as ‘mom jeans’, or high waisted jeans,” said Winfield. “I cut them and made them myself.”

“I bought mine at Forever 21,” said sophomore Stephanie Reiser. “They were only $15.”

“I got mine at a thrift store,” said Kaufmann. “They were about $7.”

These shorts are not only for hot weather, as some students wear them with tights or leggings underneath them.

“I wear them with tank tops, collared shirts, bro-tanks, t-shirts and sweaters,” said Winfield.

“I wear them because I think they make a stylish and cute outfit and they can be flattering at the same time,” said freshman Gabi Dimick. “I usually wear them with a sweater or a flowy shirt, or something like that.”

They are not only somewhat resonably priced, but perfect for the upcoming season.

Carlmont students will see a lot of girls wearing these stylish shorts around school over the next few weeks.
