After spying high-waisted shorts on the runway — see Tibi, far left, and Adam's Spring 2011 collection, and then in some of our favorite editorials including a lovely Glamour cover with Freida Pinto, we got the hint — these shorts-up-to-here are too cute to pass up. For starters, we love that a higher waist means we can get away with wearing our cropped knits and tees, while showing off our stems. And, if you prefer to keep it more covered up, high-waisted styles are ideal for tucking in your button-downs and blouses — it makes your outfit seem sharp and helps create an hourglass figure. We've narrowed it down to 10 of our favorites, so just shop our editor's picks to start styling up your own pair.
