This week I was feeling a bit uninspired and couldn’t decide what to write about. I needed to recharge my fashion batteries, and finally it hit me. Display windows. What better way to get a quick look at upcoming and current trends than a place that was meant to entice the modern-day consumer on what to wear and how to wear it?
So I got up bright and early before opening hours, so as not to be distracted by the hustle and bustle, and went on a trip to the Chapel Hill Mall to browse from one display to another. Some hit the spot and made me feel re-inspired, while others left me disappointed. One display that really caught my eye was the ever-glamorous Charlotte Russe. Their display was not only pleasing to the eye, but also well organized and a great take on the high-low skirt look.
They styled the first look in the form of a dress. With its pastel blue color and floral pattern, it’s a great look for the upcoming spring and summer months. With the high-low bottom, a girl can be flirty without being dirty. Pairing it with the nude open-toed heel and the cream leather jacket they made the look young, fresh and fun.
The second look was a slightly different interpretation on the high-low look, but no less appreciated. With the cut accentuating the legs diagonally, all I
could think of when I saw this look was sass. Just check out the styling, extra adages weren’t necessary because the soft pastel purple and the pattern of the dress speak for itself.
The third look was a purple pastel skirt that, although it may look plain, is a perfect contended in the high-low category. I liked the fact that it was a skirt as opposed to a dress because it allows you to play with colors, patterns, and shapes through to tops and jackets. The length of the skirt was also appealing. The fronts are
long enough to be modest, yet short enough to add some attitude.
So for the spring and summer, don’t be afraid to show off those legs you’ve no doubt been hitting the Rec for with the high-low look. Add some cool pastel tones to your wardrobe, because guess what, they work for everyone!
