High Low Skirt...Dress...Skirt...

One of the latest trends is the high-low skirt.  They aren't quite yet all over the place, but they're catching on and I like!  This past weekend, my friend Nikki asked me to help her figure out how to wear her "new skirt".  I'm not going to lie, I got clothes-envy when I realized it was the high-low look I've been wanting!  

Nikki's is from Nordstrom and it is not a $teal.  Being so pricey I wanted to make sure Nik got her money's worth.  Here are three ways she could wear the skirt, but the options don't stop here.  I loved discovering the versatility and seeing that not only can it be worn for the rest of the summer, but will take her into colder temperatures as the season changes. 

(Isn't she pretty?)
Style #1:  Wear as a high waisted skirt with a plain white tank.  I suggested allowing her pink bra to show through the white shirt (you know I love this look), which unfortunately you can't see it in this picture.  Then we paired it all with some neutral flowered sandals.

Style #2:  Tie drawstring on the skirt around the neck so it appears as though it is a halter dress.  Cinch the waist with a thin belt and throw on those flowered sandals again.

Style #3:  Let the skirt lay low on the hips and wear with a comfy sweater.  Nikki had some fantastic boots that had to be shown off and matched the sweater pretty perfectly. 

For the night she went with wearing the skirt as a dress. 
The options to wearing this skirt (or sometimes a dress) are endless.  Here are a couple less expensive high-low skirts I found that can be worn the same ways I styled Nikki. 

Have fun playing dress up :)

What's your favorite style Nikki wore?


  1. Love this! You are a fabulous writer! Not to mention a genius when it comes to fashion :) thanks for all the ways to wear my new favorite skirt/dress! 

  2. Thanks, friend! I'm so glad you love it!

  3. I love the sweater look with the dress and boots. Would have never thought to pair them. Such a great fall look - that screams "I know my fashion!"

  4. Thank ya, Ma'am :) I'm sure you've got something in your wardrobe you could pair together!

  5. I was pleasantly surprised by how good that skirt looked as a dress. Sometimes that doesn't end up working as well as others, but it was incredible this time around. (:
