As you already know, I love two piece sets. (You can see my favorites here, here, and here!) You’ve heard me say before that I love how they offer the option to mix and match the tops and bottoms to create different looks, but I’m letting you in on the reason I really love them — they are insanely flattering when they hit you in the right spot.
I’m a huge fan of skater skirts because I like how they skim over my lower stomach, hiding whatever I indulged in that day, but I also love that they accentuate the most narrow part of your waist. It looks like I legit have abs in these photos (disclaimer, I don’t. See previous post for proof.) and it’s all thanks to this set’s strategic cut. The sliver of skin from the crop top helps draw the eye up, and the defined waist band of the skirt helps further create the illusion of a smaller waist. Double points to this set because the off-the-shoulder neckline continues to draw the eye even further up!
I wore this look out to a friend’s birthday party on U Street (my debit card and dignity are still at Tropicalia from that night in case you’re wondering…), but I can definitely see myself wearing it again to a country concert or Jazz In The Garden one night. Oh and the best part? it’s only $12.
