I love the look of a cool high-low dress or maxi skirt. I have a great high-low dress I've been dying to wear but dumb me, didn't put it in my 30 for 30. These are little formal and higher that what I wanted but they were good inspiration.
I took my basic gray maxi skirt and with a few instant DIY steps, I created a high-low skirt. In my next outfit post, you'll see the full effect.
1. Maxi Skirt (any longer skirt will do)
2. Safety pins
First determine how high you want the "high" part of your skirt to be. Then determine how large you'd like the drape (just in the front or across the whole skirt). If you want your drape to be wider (across the whole skirt) you'll need a few more safety pins that the three I used.
Accordian fold your skirt at the center, tucking the hem under. When you have your skirt at the height you desire, beginning at the bottom push the safety pin up through the back edge of the folds on the inside of your skirt. Repeat this at even intervals across the skirt.
The final product...
Next time I'll try out a higher hemline and a broader skirt drape.
