Style Tips for the Modernshopgirl: The Hi-Low Skirt

AKA the mullet skirt. All of us Modernshopgirls are crazy about this trend! It is universally flattering, shows off your fabulous shoes and shows a little leg without the worries of a mini skirt. What is not to love? We are loading up on them for summer and here are some ways you can rock this party in the front, business in the back skirt!

#1 – Pick a pattern! The easiest way to wear this trend is to choose a pattern with several different colors, this give you a lot of options on top! This zig zag skirt is the perfect blend of color and neutrals. We paired it with our fav Michael Stars short sleeve dolman in navy.  Add wedges and a statement necklace and you are ready!

#2 – Black is back! We know, we know. Color is in for summer, but black is the perfect counterpart to summer’s bright colors. Check out Ella Moss‘s tie dyed tank, we knotted the bottom to make it a bit more fitted and a bit more bohemian. Bangles and a matching necklace keep this black anything but basic.

#3 – Lady like detail! The Modernshopgirls are swooning over this polka dot hi-low skirt. With brass buttons up the front and sheer soft fabric you will be lunching like a lady. To make the skirt pop, we added a the cowl neck tank in turquoise by Michael Stars.  A simple Chan Luu necklace adds the perfect lady like touch.

Style Tips for the Modernshopgirl: White Trousers

We are back and tackling the white trouser! A lot of women have reservations about white pants and with good reason, but release the fear with Hudson‘s white cotton trouser. This fabric is cool, comfy and flattering. We decided to go for three completely different looks to get those creative juices flowing, check it out!

#1 – White pants can look a little preppy sometimes so we toughened this look up with Chaser’s Iron Maiden tee. It gives a relaxed look and the muscle tee style balances out the fullness of the pant. Add tough accessories like a tribal print messenger bag, woven belt and Chan Luu‘s wrap bracelets. We completed the look with Michael Stars amazing new aviator, the Flyer.

#2 – Add a pop of color! This is kind of a no brainer, but don’t be afraid of bright colors and white. The white adds a crisp clean anchor to Bailey 44‘s orange zig zag tank. We added Nakamol‘s beautiful turquoise necklace and neutral cuff. Grab a straw tote and Michael Stars Eclipse sunglasses and you are ready for brunch by the beach.

#3 – Black and white will never go out of style, but instead of basic black try a fun print! We are all drooling over Free People‘s polka dot blouse. The basic black and white give you freedom with your accessories. We snagged a turquoise necklace and bag to balance out the black and white. Michael Stars new cat-eye, the Glam adds glamour to any outfit!
