Dressed for: Waves and Waist Detailing

Already Pretty outfit featuring asymmetric tank, Banana Republic twisted asymmetric skirt, gladiator sandals, gunmetal necklace

Top – Alternative Apparel
Skirt – Banana Republic (no longer available) – short version
Sandals – Antelope (no longer available) – similar
Necklace – thrifted via Style Encore
Earrings – Corset (no longer available) – similar
Bracelets – Amrita Singh via Ideeli – similarmore skull bracelets

I like the way the lines and draping of these pieces look like waves, curvy and fluid.

I will say, though, that this skirt and a supercool pair of Helmut Lang pants I scored at more than 50% off have proven themselves tricky to style. When a garment’s point of interest is just below the waistband, you’ve gotta pick your tops carefully or you obscure the best bits. This skirt actually has an exposed elastic waistband, so tucking isn’t even an option! (I’ve tried.) But it’s comfy and elegant and works nicely with this Alternative top and a few others I’ve already got, so it’s definitely sticking around.

    I thought that was actually a dress, Sally, so good job styling it! I love seeing you in stuff like this, because it’s things that I love but don’t suit my style and would never wear myself. Seeing you in them lets me live vicariously through you!

    Looking fantastic. Very good of you to find the right tops with the skirt. I have a few items myself, which took me forever to style (some I still don’t know how, but I am not a very good stylist).
    Sandals are very trendy too.
