High waisted skirts have been around for a while now. While they have been really popular in some fall and winter seasons, this summer they’ve been popping up more and more. Skirts are great to have in the closet because they are much more versatile and allow for more outfit choices unlike the normal go to “dress”. High waisted skirts are great because they work for any type of body type. They are great for curvier girls because they accentuate small waists. They also shorten the torso for more petite girls creating a taller look. High-waisted skirts are the perfect item to have as they can take you from day to night. You can pair them with anything from tee shirts to a dressy blouse.
The more popular high-waisted skirts are becoming the more style and cuts are becoming available. What drew me to this Fashionista’s skirt was how it was cut so that the front was shorter and elongated as it went back. These skirts also allow opportunity for great accessories. For example, this Fashionista paired her skirt with a thick high waisted belt that adds to the “cinching” effect that the high waisted skirt is so popular for.
Urban Outfitters offers a great selection and variety of high waisted skirts. For skirts with a more preppy spin, check out J. Crew. If you are looking for a more classic and professional type of skirt, Zara offers an excellent selection that are particularly chic for the workplace or a job interview. American Apparel also has some great high-waisted body con skirts that are perfect for going out.
