High Low Style

Today's "2-Part Fashion Cocktail" is a gin & tonic all about high & low. If you have a low-cut top, you're going to want to balance that out with a long hemline on the bottom. And if you're attemping a crop-top, make sure to pair it with something high-waisted so you're only showing a couple inches of skin at most.

Confession: My midsection is not my favorite part of my body. I would never have dreamt I could pull off a crop-top, had it not been for my years as a tap dancer. In many a show I've worn a 1930's style high-waisted "tap short" with a little tied blouse. {I was wearing that ensemble bought from Salvation Army to book my first Broadway tour!} While I'm well aware this look will not work for every body type, put on something generously high-waised {sitting at the narrowest part of your waist} with a non-skimpy crop top so you're only showing a couple fingers of skin & give it a try. Worst-case scenario you take it off. But at least you experimented!

P.S. Tell me in the comments below. What's ONE style that intimidates you that you're going to try on in the dressing room next time you see it? Perhaps a hemline, waist, neckline, color, era, trend?
