Her Skirt Began To Billow Until Her Feet Began To Lift



My friends will probably roll their eyes at this post. I’ve been known to overdo this trend a bit. Read: More often than not, I am found wearing some sort of high-waisted ensemble. Fortunately, the look is quite flattering, easy to pull off, and versatile enough to wear for day, night, or even on the job.


Going high-waisted by day is not only comfortable, but instantly and easily put together.

  • Wear them with basics.
  • Don’t be afraid to mix patterns.
  • Let your accessories downplay the look.


Wearing this trend out at night is my go-to look, because it’s easy to dress up or dress down.

  • Pair patterned skirts with a dressy top or blazer
  • Add a cinching belt to lend structure.
  • With such a comfortable silhouette, go daring with shoes.


Dating back to the era depicted by Mad Men, the high-waisted skirt is the perfect nine to five outfit.

  • Work with proportions, balancing a shorter skirt with a bigger top.
