If you hike your waistband all the way up to your bra, is it now a bustband?
One of my old tricks with knitted skirts like this it to wear waistband as high as possible – either just below or even over the bust – to create a different look. That trick didn’t work so well, today. The band stayed in place for photos but not for real life.
Kimono, Carole Little (thrifted). Sweater, Banana Republic (consignment). Skirt, Outlander (thrifted). Tights, We Love Colors. Boots, Steve Madden. Necklace, Taneesi.
I used to have another knit skirt, with a smaller waistband, that I’d wear above or well-above the waist to get different looks:
The downside was that it was terribly itchy, so I eventually sent it back to the thrift store.
