One of the questions that CQ is most frequently asked is 'how do I wear a high waist'? Because of that, I'm constantly on the lookout for good examples of the trend. Last night, when I finally got round to watching *that* Britney episode of How I Met Your Mother, I spotted Sarah Chalke in a perfect high waisted ensemble. A bit of digging (thank you, Style Bakery) revealed her outfit is actually a one-piece from Badgley Mischka, a look that's been copied across the high street this season. Picking a 'mock' skirt and shirt combo that's already fixed together takes the guesswork out of the high waist - there's no fear your shirt will untuck or bunch around the waist! See below the cut for some budget options...
