Celebrity Style Trend: High-Waisted SkirtsWednesday, May 19, 2010
I love high-waisted pencil skirts. I have been drooling over Zoe Saldana's outfit since I first saw it.
I found a few skirts on eBay:
Black short high-waisted skirt (size S): starting at AUD 0.99
Black high-waisted skirt with buttons (size S): starting at AUD 0.99
Grey high-waisted ruffle skirt (size 8): starting at EUR 1.49
Blue high-waisted skirt (size 10-12): starting at AUD 5
Bodycon high-waisted skirt with zip-detailing (size 8): starting at AUD 15
Here are some "How to wear a high-waisted pencil skirt" tips:
1) Since the skirt itself is tight and structured, try to wear something loose, drapey or billowy on top. This helps to balance the outfit out
2) High heels look amazing with these skirts, but do also try ankle boots for a more European look (like Kiera Knightley does in the picture below)
3) When picking out a skirt, be sure to get one that rests 2-3 inches above the knees. Otherwise you may look too 'corporate'.
4) Also, textured skirts look amazing! Try to get one with tweed detailing, like Olivia Palermo's skirt above, or even lace/ruched skirts, like Jessica Stroup's skirt in the first picture.
