I recently posted about Fergie's awkward high-waisted pants and I was surprised by the number of responses I received about how I was hating on decency and praising low-waisted pants. Funny thing is, nowhere in my post did I say anything about hip-huggers, let alone imply any sort of love for the trend. Somehow, people interpreted my dislike of high-waisted pants as adoration for muffin-top makers.

That got me thinking... What happened to normal pants? Where are the pants that are not high enough to look like mom jeans, but not low enough to expose the panties (or lack thereof). Are these really such a rarity that people have completely forgotten the piece's very existence?

Well, I'm here to remind you that normal pants are alive and well. Don't spend your time complaining about how celeb trends affect your own choices, because there are plenty of options out there. You just have to look. And here, I'll do a bit of looking for you...

Look! Urban Outfitters! Nordstrom! GAP! That took about three minutes of my time (and Google). So, come on. The pants aren't exactly hard to find, so no one really as any excuse for dressing in pants so high they enhance the belly or so low they enhance the lack of appropriate underwear. It's time to go back to the happy medium.
