Black Bandage High-Waist Skirt

From the Couture Cheapskate archives circa July 2010.

I feel the need to re-post this entry because I cannot stress enough how much you will enjoy this skirt and all it has to offer. Plus now it is available in navy...Fall's emerging color of the moment.

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 the 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 skirt looks best with a heel and not so much with flats.
