Love it or hate it, high waisted swimwear is in fashion this season. Feminine contemporary designers like Rachel Pally and Hayden-Harnett showed stand-out examples this season while the Urban Outfitters-owned line, Silence & Noise, never fails to pick up on a trend. It's peripheral examples such as these which will bring this look to life, however, don't expect to find a shortage of regular swimwear anytime soon. We doubt the day will ever come when a teeny bikini is difficult to find.
The full short skirt trend, which we think is a most flattering style, seems to be keeping in stride this Fall 08--from Opening Ceremony to Roberto Cavalli, there's an option at any price point. Pair a feminine piece like this with masculine elements like motorcycle boots, a schoolboy blazer, or a collared shirt and you'll look as sweet as pie.
