What to Wear with High Low Shirts

I'm a huge fan of the high low hem on skirts, dresses, and shirts. Skirts and dresses are probably the easiest to wear and pull off without having to much concern to as to what to match it up with. Shirts on the other hand can be a little tricky. Shirt hems in the front play a big role on what to wear and how to style it. For instance if you have a cropped top high low shirt the best pairing would be a high waist bodycon skirt or high waist cut off shorts. Then you have your typical one that hits the hips or a little lower. These shirts are more common and are fun to play around in the summer. They can we dressed up for work, going out, or just for your typical summer day.

What to Wear with High Low Shirts

1. The bodycon skirt. When doing a bodycon skirt keep all accessories sleek and chic. If this is a for a daytime look don't go to hoochy mama on it and keep the heel low. I wouldn't go above 3 - 3.5 inches. You don't have to play it to safe-- try a shoe with a bold print or some kind of print to tie it all together. Pick colors that are in your outfit.

2. Shorts. I don't know about you but I live in my cut off shorts during the summer months. They are a must for any closet! Shorts with a high low top are perfect for any summer daytime look-- from going shopping to just hanging out. If you're going to a music festival this summer try pairing up your top and shorts with Converse high tops and a backpack to carry all your essentials. Converse sneakers add a cool hip feel to any look, plus they are timeless pieces that will never go out of style.

3. Skinny jeans. Rule rule rule! High low tops ALWAYS get paired with skinny jeans. This will keep you proportionate and not looking wide. This summer is all about print and colored jeans, take your spring skinny jeans and pair it up with with a high low top. Keep your accessories easy breezy-- pick a neutral toned bag to blend the whole look together.

  1. the easiest are the dresses, you put them on and you are done.
    Styling a simple basic shirt like you have done is great, more complicated with printed shirts.
