In the first outfit, I incorporated a bright and lively high-waisted knit pencil skirt from American Eagle. Pair it with a simple white boyfriend tank, tucked into the skirt. Add on a gorgeous simple Guess handbag and white gladiators.
In the second outfit I added a more chic flair. I paired an electric blue high waisted skirt with a delicate white blouse. It's a contrast between bold and delicate, and it works out beautifully. Finish it off with a leather handbag and cream coloured flats.
The third outfit is more fun and playful. I paired a high waisted knit mini from UO, and a feminine white blouse. Top it off with a black hobo shoulder bag and classic leather flip flops, and you're good to go!
The last outfit is a more sophisticated look. I paired a basic vibrant purple v-neck tee, with a classic black pencil skirt. Top it off with a timeless silver heart pendant necklace from Tiffany & Co., black satin flats and a patent black handbag from Coach.

The first outfit is chic, and looks like it's straight off the streets of Paris. Pair a dark heathered grey high-waisted skirt with a vintage tee. Finish it off with a pair of black opaque tights, black flats, bow earrings and a patent black headband.
The second outfit is perfect for work. Pair a white blouse, tucked into a tiered high waisted black skirt with patent black pumps. Finish it off with a black Coach handbag and a delicate blue heart necklace.
The third outfit is fun and bold, and perfect for a party! I paired an American Apparel vivid purple high-waisted skirt (can double as a minidress) with a simple black boyfriend tank tucked in. Top it off with black opaque tights, simple white Guess handbag and jet black mascara.
The last outfit is classy and bold at the same time. I paired a bold California fleece tulip skirt in a striking red shade, with a white button down tucked inside. Finish it off with a timeless silver heart tag necklace from Tiffany & Co, brown leather handbag from UO, and leather gladiators.

Mastering the high-waisted skirt look is both easy and stunning. It's a hot trend for spring, and you'll be seeing a lot more of it in the upcoming months. Please leave a comment, and let me know what you think!

    I'm not personally very found of high waisted skirts, but you did a very nice job of making them wearable and a part of an every day wardrobe.
