Tops to Wear With High-Waist Skirts

Casual Cool

For a simple daytime look, go for a basic tee or tank tucked into your high-waist skirt. Play around with colors and patterns to keep the look fresh. Make sure your silhouette remains svelte by pulling your top taut from underneath your skirt. Jazz up this outfit with bold accessories, such as a statement-making necklace and fedora hat.

The Office

If you are headed to the office, pair a high-waist skirt with a fitted cardigan, or a blazer and a tailored blouse. The key here is to keep the proportions balanced. If your skirt is form fitting, tuck the blouse in and let it hang slightly over the top of the skirt with the coordinating sweater unbuttoned as an accent. With a fuller-shaped skirt, tuck in both the blouse and fitted cardigan for a more uptown feel. Accessorize with pearls and you’re ready to take the workday by storm.

Hanging Out

When you are just rolling to the mall or the movies, reach for a cute little cropped top. The beauty of pairing a high-waist skirt with a cropped top is you won’t have to worry about your entire midriff hanging out. Depending on the length of the top, you can have just a sliver of skin showing or none at all.

Going Out

A hip-hugging, thigh-grazing high-waist skirt looks fabulous with an off-shoulder slinky top tucked just right. If you want a more body-conscious look, show off those curves in a princess-cut bustier. On a chilly night, pull on a pair of tights with chunky wedge boots and cropped jacket to complete the look. Steaming summer nights call for a pair of stilettos and healthy, glowing skin.
