One of my new favorite black skirts is this Collective Concept skirt from Nordstrom. In the past I have had a fear of fashion styles that are associated with being low, such as low rise jeans and drop crotch pants. But this item will now break my fear. Not only do I adore this skirt but I also now own a few styles of drop waist clothing.
This silhouette is a throwback from the 1920s and is known for the longer bodice section with a shorter skirt. Wearing this silhouette is very versatile, I have paired this skirt previously with a blazer and heels (see here), or you can go a little more casual with a sweater.
The only concern with wearing a drop waist item is the body type issue. For someone who does not have a long torso or is short, a drop waist might make them look shorter. This is why I normally wear heels with this skirt. If that’s not what you’re going for, try on different sizes to achieve the look you want.
