Cropped Top: Eight-sixty
Pleated Skort: River Island
Ankle boots: Guess
Skorts are awesome! It's business in the front, party in the back. This pleated version from River Island is so elegant and refined and looks so modern with the scoop-back crop top. Mixing patterns and textures doesn't always work but when you keep the colors neutral, it can work really well.
Nothing goes as well with high-waisted skirts/shorts as crop tops! They are form fitting, show a sliver of skin, and create a slender and lean shape. This striped and scalloped one from Eight-Sixty is my favorite. The material is silky soft and the circle cutouts add intrigue, as does the wide low-cut back.
