Pairing high-waisted shorts with a crop top is perfect if you're planning a pool or beach day. Add some sandals and a slouchy tote and you'll be more than ready to walk out the door.

This is a versatile look that could work for day or night. A baggy pair high-waisted shorts work well for a more dressy occasion. The model above is wearing a blazer, a blouse and a perfect pair of wedges to complete this look. You can do something similar and add your own personal style to make this look work for you!

If you like shorts that are more form-fitting, then you can give this look a try. You can pair your shorts with a blouse that fits loosely on you so that you have a more classic 40's pin-up girl look. Add some wedges or heels and a few accessories and you'll be sure to turn heads with this ensemble!

High- waisted shorts are perfect for going out and looking fabulous in the process. Doing a similar combination of tight shorts with a looser fitting top and a blazer can take this look from good to great. Just put on some heels and you'll be ready to go out on the town in style!

If you're going for a more dressed down look then wearing a cute screen print with a pair of form-fitting shorts is definitely the way to go. As you can see in this example, Taylor Swift found a pair that has a little bling on it for an added pop to her outfit. This look doesn't require fancy shoes, all you'll need are some flats (it can be anything from sandals to converse sneakers) and maybe a few accessories that fit your personal style. It's that simple!

Now that you have a few styling tips, you can go out and confidently buy a pair of high-waisted shorts and rock this look! Leave us a comment and tell us how you like to wear your high-waisted shorts!
