The staple of this outfit are the high waisted black shorts Rihanna is wearing.  These high waited black shorts from Nordstrom are not only incredibly flattering but a much more acceptable high waisted black short to wear to school.

First of all, the denim shirt is a huge trend this fall so get one.  Secondly, SEVEN DOLLARS.  Yea, you heard it here first.  Go run out and get yourself one cause this cut is adorable and if you tuck this shirt into those high waisted shorts it’s going to be edgy, but fun.

This is the kind of look you’re going to want to create a silhouette for.  In order to do this we need to keep all the colors on the botto half of your body the same.  So with these black tights we’re going to continue to elongate the leg and pair them with a black booties to complete the bottom half of your look.
