Fabulous Find of the Week: Forever 21 High-Low Skirt


This week’s Fabulous Find is something that, I must admit, I was on the fence about – the high-low skirt. I wasn’t sold on this trend until I saw it on my best friend: She came to class last week in an incredible mustard chiffon high-low skirt, and I immediately fell in love.

Ever since then, I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect high-low skirt, and I’m happy to say I finally found it – this subtly dotted, perfectly summery peach chiffon one is fantastic, AND is only $14.80 at Forever 21! If you’ve been wanting to try the high-low trend, this budget-friendly skirt is the one to get. (Bonus: It comes in blue as well!)

Outfit Inspiration

Now that you’ve seen the skirt, check out these three stylish and totally different ways to rock it:

Outfit 1

This first look is laid back and effortless – perfect for a casual day of classes or a weekend shopping trip. By pairing the pretty, flowy skirt with a muscle band tee and a pair of comfy leopard loafers, you instantly give the skirt a cool, punk-rock feel. Rock this look on your last few days of class to make a lasting impression over the summer!

Outfit 2

The second look is a little more polished and has a more put-together vibe than the first. This time, I mixed the skirt with a thick-striped navy and white top. The colors blend nicely with a cool pair of brown wrap sandals, and a simple gold necklace is dainty enough to balance out the boldness of the stripes. This would be the perfect look for a breezy lunch date or running errands.

Outfit 3

The last, and my favorite, look of this week is also the dressiest. Here, I paired the skirt with an incredible floral bustier and a bangin’ pair of black wedges. A gold clutch finishes off the look without overpowering the bold ensemble. This look would be perfect for a night out with the girls – you’re sure to turn heads in this fab skirt!

    I just wrote about this as well on LPF!! i like it because I think it’s a great way for a petite girl to pull off a maxi skirt!

    I have this skirt! I tucked a black cami in and added a gold necklace. This skirt looks great with a tan. The only thing that bothers me about it is that it wrinkles really easily.

    We have had this style for ages in Australia and I am really not a fan I along with many others just refer to it as a mullet dress/skirt

    Lori – YES! Mullet dress! Haha I was just about to post the exact same thing. I’m kind of on the fence with these – I have a mullet dress but it’s way more subtle than the above the knees/touching the floor business which so many are. It’s that style I’m not particularly a fan of.

    OMG! I felt the same way about this skirt that has been recently trending. I picked up to purchase it but I wasn’t sure of how to put it togther but thank goodness for style inspiration 2 and 3 because now I feel as if I can go out and purchase it and match it up with something lovely.

    Aha! I’ve just bought a really similar skirt to this from ASOS and was wondering how I could dress it down into everyday wear…

    As much as I love accessorizing I’m a little bit offended by the use of a gold cross necklace as a “dainty” accessory. As a Christian I feel that downplaying the cross to a cute aspect of an outfit takes away from the significance that we Christians hold in the cross.

    I agree about the cross…it does have significance for Christians and shouldn’t be used as just another accessory
