I only own a handful of skirts in my closet, and almost all of them are high-waisted. The one I'm wearing below is a fairly recent purchase from April, and the fit is so perfect that now I want everything that House of Harlow makes! It's fully lined, has a zipper on the side, and is the sweetest shade of pink.

The only problem, how should I style it?

My general rule for skirts is to pair them with a simple blouse, tucked in. This looks the most polished and proportional on most women. I tried a few options, but they all bunched up terribly, so I went for a white t-shirt instead and knotted it at the side. I loved the effect! The side knot gives the illusion of a tiny waist, and the ruching it creates is also slimming. Plus, no worries about adjusting my top throughout the day! I think it's perfect for casual Summer outfits, and now I want to try it with a maxi skirt I don't get enough use from.

 What do you think of the knot tee trend? It's probably on its way out and I'm just now getting it!

  1. I looove skirts and this one is so pretty. It will come handy on those hot summer days, how cute would it look with a loose tucked in v-neck tee.


  2. This is so cute! I just got a skirt very similar to this and am planning to try it with a white tee next. Love the sandals you paired with it as well!

  3. I have the same rule! I am trying to make my style less "blogger" and more realistic and simple is KEY!

  4. I have a similar lace skirt that I can't seem to get a top to work with. I need to try this option! It's really cute!

  5. I also love the affect! This was the perfect styling choice for your cute skirt.

  6. I love skirts but struggle to style them because nothing ever looks good tucked in on me. I love that you got creative with the knot! Right now I'm stocking up on bodysuits because they solve the tuck issues with the high waisted styles. Also sometimes a crop top will work too!

  7. Such a cute look dear! I love knotted tees, they make basic tee look extra chic. Also, cute pastel skirt you got there, really perfect for the white top.
