Fitted and Flattering Black Skirt

High-Waist Mini Bandage Skirt
$59.50 at Express

A go-to basic in your closet that is a tad sexy and beyond versatile.

What I like: The “bandage” trend is everywhere on the red carpet, but let’s be honest, most women are hesitant to try anything that implies painted on. One thing I appreciate about Express knits: they are usually very thick and therefore not clingy and cellulite revealing. Enter their version of a bandage skirt. Although this skirt is fitted, it is also flattering and lays nicely over curves. I also enjoy the high waist and the hem length – just above the knee. Tasteful for either the office or an evening out. And it is machine washable so another $ave on your dry cleaning bill!

What I wear it with: This skirt is the perfect bottom for flowing, swing-bottom tops. It also looks perfectly polished with a white blouse. In colder weather, this skirt works well with tights and blazers – go for a constructed shoulder for an updated version of the power suit. Steer clear of any too tight top or anything too sexy. Unfortunately, this is a high-heel only skirt…my recommendation: the Elkie Peep Toe Sandal from Nine West shown below.
