Why, High-Low There! online it Up (and Down) with these 10 fantastic High-Low Styles
You understand that high-low style where the material is cut higher in the front while the back flows longer? Well, I’m totally in love with the look as well as nothing—nothing—you state can snap me out of it. Their revealing-in-all-the-right-places asymmetry is an unexpected twist on the norm (dare-to-be-different confidence does it for me every time). Plus, their looks variety from dressy to laid-back as well as can go from feminine to edgy in a heartbeat.
So, you’ll have to excuse me if I get a little defensive when people begin giving this fun style Michael Bolton-esque nicknames (circa mid-’80s) like The Mullet (okay, that one does get me laughing) or make hokey jokes about designers facing material shortages.
Read on to see why we’re not kidding around with this style. right here are 10 fantastic ways to go with the high-low flow:
High-Low Styles that You must Try
Lady in Red
Knotted Sweetheart Tube Dress, $13.80 from Forever21
We believe this gown is fantastic for those nights when you want to strike that sexy-summery balance. thanks to a hem that’s high sufficient in the front to be revealing yet low sufficient in the back to be ladylike, this look is fantastic for a dressier date or a fun night out with friends.
Make Mine an LBD, with a Twist
Karen Kane Ruched Jersey gown with Slit, $94 from Nordstrom
Great restaurant? Check. That special someone? Yes. now get your sexy look on with a twist on the LBD: the H/L LBD. That’s right, provide that traditional little black gown an edge by stepping out for cocktails in one that’s somewhat higher in the front (with a slit) as well as longer in the back. I truly like that this look stays true to a traditional while incorporating a head-turning trend.
Be summertime Breezy
Love on a Hanger storage tank Dress, $38 from Nordstrom
Go awesome as well as casual in a simple above-the knee storage tank gown that’s longer in the back. It’s short as well as breezy sufficient to be summertime flirty yet has sufficient length so you can stroll about without worrying that the slightest wind burst will provide you an “oopsie” Marilyn Monroe skirt-lift.
Romance is in the Air

Go charming with a flowing floral. They’re comfortable as well as flattering without being body-clinging. This look is soft, wonderful as well as extremely trendy.
Be a Rock Star
Micro star High-Low Skirt, $19.80 from permanently 21
Get going with your inner hardcore self for moods where you’re not feeling those summertime brights or summertime anything. Go one part Fleetwood Mac “Everywhere” flowy, one part AC/DC “Thunderstruck” heavy by slipping on a (mostly) black high-low skirt that goes to hemline length extremes. Then, pair with some combat boots—or, if you must, temper the bad-ass bit with colorful bracelets or crisscross wedges.
Calvin Klein Colorblock Jersey Dress, $98 from Nordstrom
Not every high-low style has to be up-to-there high as well as wedding-train-trailing low. We believe this colorblock jersey gown is classy as well as comfortable as well as love that it’s still on-trend without going to hemline extremes.
Pleats to satisfy You
Pleated Asymmetrical Skirt, $19.80 from permanently 21
High-low isn’t always a matter of front-back length variations. believe side-to-side, like this asymmetrical skirt where the material is higher on one side of your leg as well as longer on the other. You’re not unbalanced, you’re diagonally charmed!
Simplicity that Floored Us
Mimi Chica Maxi Skirt, $38 from Nordstrom
Stepping out in this casual maxi skirt is high-low simplicity (and comfort) at its best. I particularly like that the hem forms a graduated, gentle curve that still manages to stay within floor(ish)-grazing maxi territory. It’s a low high-low.
To Tie-Dye For
