Finding a tight, high skirt that is super-flattering to your figure is so exciting that it's easy to suddenly realize you have a new skirt but no pieces to complete the look. Don't despair -- high, tight skirts are simply to style around. Whether you're into a laid-back, menswear-inspired vibe or a sultry, smoldering aesthetic, your skirt works with a ton of chic looks.
When you're playing with a tight, high skirt and you have a desire to balance the sexy factor with a touch of sweetness, go for a romantic look that covers all bases. Start with deep burgundy skirt. Tuck in a gauzy, light-hued blouse -- think white or pale gray -- with a ruffled placket and long poet's sleeves for a soft, feminine touch. Pull on a pair of dark gray opaque tights and step into dark gray stiletto-heel booties. Smoldering.
A tight, high skirt works lovely as a centerpiece to a simple, sleek outfit. Choose a skirt color and go all black with the rest of your outfit for a foolproof approach to a beautiful look. Imagine you're wearing a cobalt blue, high-waisted, body-hugging skirt. Pull on a black turtleneck and tuck it into your skirt. Slide on a pair of black opaque tights and pop your feet into black high-heel booties -- super sleek.
While pulling on a tight, high skirt may immediately conjure up images of dressy outfits, you can totally pull off a more laid-back, urban-inspired ensemble. Envision yourself in a tight black mini as your foundation piece. Pull a pale blue oversize tank top over your head, tuck it into your skirt and blouse it out slightly. Give your look a tough edge by sliding on a gray leather moto-style jacket with zipper detailing. Step into a pair of bold, high-heel gladiator sandals -- think gold or neon blue.
If you're a fan of a more rustic, country chic appearance, a tight, high skirt adds a flirty vibe to your down-home ensemble. Visualize yourself in a fitted, high-waisted denim skirt in a deep indigo rinse. Tuck in a pale pink button-front shirt with a ruffled bib. Pull on a cropped, boxy, tweed blazer in a neutral tone such as dark brown. Slide into a pair of dark brown opaque tights and refined dark brown loafers with chunky high heels.
