Being a shorty at only 5"1, I've never been too keen on maxi dresses or skirts. I admire the boho chic look but it's just that I always thought I could never pull it off since I don't quite have long enough stems for it. Not only that, but it's extremely difficult to find any ankle-length skirts or dresses that don't utterly consume me and require 6 inch heels...until I found this little gem - at Forever21 no less so you know the price was right!
I love high-low skirts because they balance out a petite frame and allow your legs to be shown off without the inappropriateness of a mini. They're playful and flirty and can easily be dressed up for the office, glammed up for a night in the city, or worn with trendy casual pieces for a more downtown vibe.
