High waisted skirts are very trendy right now. There are so many ways to wear them from fitted and sleek to pleated and full. Plain or patterned, dressed up or dressed on, no matter how you choose to wear this piece, you will surely follow the trend. This article will show you how to choose a high waisted skirt.
The high waisted skirt is a throwback to vintage glamour. It looks great dressed up or dressed down, worn with heels or flats. This is an item that if well chosen, will last you for ages. A high waisted skirt can sit anywhere from in your waist, right up to just under your breasts.
This is a skirt that should be worn well-tailored, and definitely, not skin tight. The length should be just on the knee or below the knee. A black high waisted pencil skirt looks smashing with a simple crisp button-up shirt, or a flouncy blouse. Wear it to the office or evening cocktails. It will increase its glamour by choosing a satin finish on the skirt. Pair your sleek smart skirt with a pair of black heels and a simple white top and you will look gorgeous every time.
The casual high waisted skirt should be worn in the waist. Pair it with a thin belt for a trendy edge. This look calls for slightly fuller skirts than the smarter look. Wear your skirt pleated or gathered and with a mid thigh length. Wear it in a plain bright fabric with a contrasting top to create this season's favourite look, the colour blocked outfit. Choose a skirt with frills or layers for added detail. For a more whimsical feel, wear a patterned skirt in a light filmy fabric in earthy tones. Wear this skirt with a plain scoop necked top and a pair of brogues.
Length and height
Consider your height and body shape when choosing this style of skirt. A fitted smart black skirt looks smashing on shorter girls as it lengthens the body. However, if you are tall and slender, cut and detailing become very important. If you have a small waist and wide hips, avoid wearing skirts that sit in your waist or tailored skirts with horizontal seams as these will accentuate the difference between your waist and your hips, making your hips appear wider that they actually are. Vertical seams create a smoother silhouette.
