What happens when a flowy maxi dress meets a leg-baring mini skirt? You get one of this season’s trendiest silhouettes…the high-low hemline!
A “party” in the front and “business” in the back, high-low hemlines are flirtatious, yet sophisticated. They have the power to elongate your frame and highlight your best assets, not to mention they're a fab way to show off your favorite shoes!
Rihanna, Kourtney Kardashian, Emma Stone and Selena Gomez are just a few celebs who have rocked a high-low frock. Now, it’s your turn! Here are some fun ways to take your style to new heights:
We love a high-low skirt paired with a fitted blouse. Finish off the look with a ¾ sleeve blazer.
Mix things up with a high-waisted skirt and throw on a crop top for a look that’s casual chic. Don’t worry about baring too much skin! The length of this season’s crops works magically with a higher waist...the proportions are perfect!
Grab a high-low dress or skirt in a solid color, and add a fun twist to your look with an accordion style, or pleated fabric.
