The idea behind my choice was to create a strong silhouette in relation to the soft, drapey shape of the skirt. I like to play with silhouettes and textures, so I chose a fitted, textured top to juxtapose it against the smooth and loose shape of the skirt, and cinched the look off with a statement belt. I feel that proportions are extremely important when wearing a high waisted skirt like this, so I broke up the torso using a different coloured top and belt so as to make the legs look longer. I topped the look off with a draped jacket to add a dash of contrast to the light colours of the top and skirt. The look I’ve created is simple yet sophisticated, and can bring you anywhere from shopping to a cocktail party.
