Summer Go-To: High-Waisted Skirt and a Crop Top

Hi-lo skirt and a crop top

I know. It’s fall. But I have a couple lingering summer looks I haven’t posted yet, so despite the fact that I’m huddled in a sweatshirt, freezing on the couch this morning, we’re talking summer. The crop top and high waisted skirt combo was by far my favorite summer trend, and while color palettes change with fall, the crop top itself isn’t going anywhere. Think long-sleeved crops and sweater crops…and think lots and lots of ab workouts (<–check out my new Ab Workout category page! It’s so much more organized than the feed I used to have!).

High-waisted bottoms are great because I only have two abs, right at the top of my stomach, and they are arguably not even abs at all and actually just ribs, so the fact that this clothing combo shows those off while conveniently hiding the rest is just perfect. Fake it till you make it, right?

This cotton hi-lo skirt is awesome because it can be easily dressed up or down. I went the casual route with this outfit, throwing on a pair of sneakers.

  1. I love the new way you have organized your workouts tab! It is so easy to find the exact kind of workout that I want to do. I found your site a few weeks ago and am enjoying everything you have done here. Thanks so much!!

  2. Hi! So Im going straight foward (and Im sorry cause I know this is an old post!!): I got my prom this year and since dresses are just out of question for me, Id really like to wear a skirt like that cause its just beautiful jesus, but this is an old post and the website you mentioned no longer has the skirt… do you know where can I look for a similar one? Its really important, thank you!!

    • I would look at — they have a big variety of skirts and you could probably find something similar. Have fun at prom!! 🙂
