Welcome to the first installment of what I like to call Trendy Tuesdays.  Each Tuesday we will look at a trend for the current season.  We can discuss the trend, whether or not we like it and how to get the look at different price points since we aren’t all millionaires (shocking, I know!!).

Our first trend is the “high low skirt.”  I first saw this while shopping a couple of weekends ago and since then have been noticing it more and more every where I look, which led me to the assumption that this must be what the cool kids call a trend.

I personally LOVE this look!  I think skirts are a comfortable, yet still classy way to spend a casual afternoon.  It’s just as easy to pull off as a pair of jeans yet the style factor has been upped 1000%.  Now having a swayback, I can’t always wear skirts easily.  If the length is good in the front, it is always shorter in the back and that can cause problems.  With this skirt, problem solved!!  This is definitely a trend I will be trying this season.

So where can we find this look at the different price points?  Well, if you are rolling in the dough and looking for new things to spend money on here is this skirt that I found on Net-A-Porter.  This is the Skaist-Taylor Lydon dipped-hem silk-voile skirt and it can be yours for only $670.  Steal right??

Ok, now for the rest of you out there that don’t have the spare funds to drop two car payments pocket change on a skirt, there are some cheaper options out there that are still just as cute…  FYI:  These are the ones that I will be shopping at.

Just as cute, right??  And at only $15.80 you can get an entire outfit and still have money left for a weekend getaway to equal the amount of the other skirt.

Is this a trend that you are going to get behind?  If so, which one do you prefer; to spend some extra money for higher quality or to save some money on a less expensive option?

Extra:

  • If there are any other trends you would like me to cover let me know.  Either leave me a comment or email me:  fashionistarookie@gmail.com.
  • I am loving knee high boots and am wanting a pair in my closet ASAP!  However, I have calves that makes boots a bit difficult to get on (thank you, ballet).  Anyone have any tips on where I could find some boots that might fit?
  • And finally.  I am in the process of putting together an exciting giveaway and will keep you updated once I have all the details in place.  Keep an eye out for that!

Hope you all have a great week!
