have this? need that!

24 August 2012
i decided to make "have this? need that!" into a series after sharing my newest fashion find. i love dreaming up new ways to style great pieces i already have and hopefully it will offer a little inspiration for you too!

i believe every woman needs a great high-waisted skirt. it can be a mini, midi, or maxi, but the key is fit. the waistband should fit snugly at your natural waist or a bit higher (1-2 inches above your navel) and should be looser throughout the thigh. the exception of course is a pencil skirt, which is fitted throughout the thigh and tapers at the knee, but be careful not to go too tight.

i personally think a-line or bell-shape are the most universally flattering fits - both cinch in a woman's waist and create structure for a clean line. pairing with a silk tank and statement necklace is a chic daytime or evening look, depending on hair, makeup, and shoes. you can also pair with belted cardigan or tights, boots, and a blazer for fall.
