High Waist Skirt

A high-waisted skirt is a fashionable statement to make at the office or for dress and casual wear. Depending on the cut of the skirt, tons of styles can be created with the right top and shoes. This is a great way to show off pretty belts, making it a fun piece to accessorize. And this versatile style can be enjoyed all year round.

A fitted high-waisted skirt, such as a pencil skirt, can be easily balanced with a blousy top. Try a long-sleeve button down or V-neck blouse with puffy sleeves. Under a blazer, this is the ideal business suit. For plans in the evening, take off the blazer and toss on some gold jewelry. Pretty color combinations include white tops with grey or black skirts and blazer. Or, try pink with gray for an update on the old classic style.

A-line skirts are a little more full, so need less balancing with the top. This is a great style to wear with fitted button-downs for work and tee-shirts for a casual outings. Try a fun, colorful graphic tee with a solid color skirt, or something sparkly to dress it up. For printed skirts, wear solid tees in contrasting colors, such as yellow with black, red with grey or green with beige.

The fuller the high-waisted skirt, the more fitted the top should be. Full pleated skirts are perfectly balanced with tank tops and sleeveless blouses. For the office, stick with traditional color combinations, such as brown with beige or all-white. To dress it up for later that evening, swap tops and try red with a black skirt, purple with beige or silver with a white skirt.

Tuck in shirts to show off the high-waist skirt. This style is great for displaying interesting belts, and an excellent way to incorporate wider belts into a wardrobe. Some belted skirts come with a matching blazer for business wear. After work, it's easy to swap the blazer for a trendier style, such as a cropped jacket or motorcycle jacket. These skirts are available by ABG, BCX and others.
