A pencil skirt is one of the most well-loved high waist styles. Pencil skirts feature a high waist and a shape that smoothes very closely against the legs, tapering down into a narrow bottom just above the knees. Wear high waisted pencil styles with ruffly blouses in delicate fabrics like silk for a refined work look. Pencil skirts also pair beautifully with like-color cropped blazers, and they can be worn casually as well.
Looking for a comfortable weekend look? A denim skirt with a high waist is an adorable base for many different outfits. Try pairing denim high waisted skirts with simple white T-shirts and black or red suspenders for a playfully dressed-down look. Make it a bit dressier with some tights—opaque jewel tones look great with contrasting color suspenders, while nude tone tights complement black suspenders nicely. High heels like pumps look great with high waisted clothing.
Replace the staple item in an outfit with a statement piece like a striped skirt. Bold stripes make an eye-catching statement. Choose a skirt with neutral colors, such as black and white stripes, and then wear a bright jewel tone top and shoes. Hot pink, turquoise, red and yellow are all excellent options for this look. A colorful striped skirt with neutral tone accessories will work just as well.
What can emphasize the waist even better than a high waist style? Adding a belt! A belted skirt with a high waist reinforces the hourglass look by drawing a line from one side to the other at your narrowest point: the natural waist. Many belted skirts come with like-color belts; for flashier styles, try replacing the original belt with a bright red or yellow one.
