Summer High Low

 

_C7A0472

High Low skirts are proving to be a constant trend. Whilst i have a love-hate relationship with some particular trends (e.g check tops and dresses) this style of skirt always stand the test of time. I paired mine with a structured top also from Coast storesย which I have had for quite a while and these lovely Sophia Webster sandals. I also love the fact that even though its a long skirt, the high low feature means you can show off your shoes! I have linked below alternatives where the piece is no longer available. On a side note, always remember that life is full of highs and lows- without the lows, the highs would mean nothing.

Here are 3 tips for this look:

  1. Long A- line skirt always look better when paired with a fitted short sleeve or crop top.
  2. Dress up or dress down the look with sandals, pumps or wedges.
  3. Don’t overdo the accessories e.g necklace, earrings and bracelets because a long statement skirt already screams for attention.

    What a gorgeous skirt. I love it! As a mum of 2 kids I seriously have no time or money to go shopping guide for my own clothes so I’m completely clueless to what the latest trends are!xx #twinklyTuesday

    Your entire look is chick, from the color combos, to the styling to the accessories. Thank you for sharing!

    I love those shoes! I don’t often get to wear high heels with ankle straps because I’m so short (it makes my legs look shorter than what they are) but I don’t often wear an A-line skirt, so I think that would work. I think you may have just inspired me to try something new!

    When you said “statement skirt,” I totally believed you. OMG, that skirt is sure to turn heads! I like your advice of not over-doing the accessories. However, your purse is just awesome. Love that too!
