Trend Alert: High-Waisted Denim Skirts

Inquiring fashionista minds want to know where to get stylish and flattering high-waisted denim skirts like the one Isabell wore in her California cool Look of the Day. High-waisted denim skirts are great for Summer because they: a) reflect the high-waisted trend, and b) they keep your legs cool in the sun. They go great with just about every shoe, especially gladiators, semi-flat sandals and sky-high Mary Janes. Come Fall, you can even wear them with some textured tights. So all together now, let's get high...waisted, that is!

I think that the high-waisted skirt look is very flattering- esp for the booty...and I like them much better than high-waisted shorts...not many people can pull off the shorts =P

I tried one on the other day and it made me feel really uncomfortable. I guess I'll always be a low-waist kind of girl!

Thank youuuu -- I have tons of high-waisted skirts I've made for myself or had my other atelier friends make me, but I always buy denim... So I'm excited to add a flouncy and pencil high-waist skirt to my wardrobe!

Hate it, Hate it, hate it, but I suppose it can be a lesser evil if it gets Britney Spears and her unholy minions to put some clothes on: keeping that sick, sad fat-Elvis midriff covered! Y'know what I'm sayin'?

I bought a high waisted dark denim pencil skirt exactly like the D&G one at Forever 21 for probably $25. It's great and I can't wait to put it with all my fall shirts, too.

High-waisted skirts are super-flattering on lots of figures! I bought an A-line one last summer from Forever 21, and I got compliments every time I wore it. It's pretty shabby now (it was, like, $11), but I can't let go.
