Cascading skirts and dresses that flow in the breeze are always a favorite of mine during the summer months. I can never have enough maxi dresses or short sundresses. That is why I love this week’s featured trend so much; it incorporates both! I’m talking about the high-low trend: the garment is longer in the back and shorter in the front. High-low dresses and skirts are all over the place. In fact, the day I spotted this Fashionista I saw four other people wearing the trend, too. Clearly Fashionistas everywhere are in love with the high-low trend this summer as much as I am.
This Fashionista’s dress is a perfect example of why this trend is great for summer. The lightweight fabric is airy and flows beautifully. It is simple, feminine and effortless. The pattern of the dress as well as the lace detail along the bottom make it unique. Use this Fashionista’s sense of style as your inspiration this week by incorporating the high-low trend into your wardrobe. This black dress has a similar lace detail to the one on our Fashionista, while this dress has similar coloring.
The bright color of this dress screams summer and the ruffle top shows off your tan shoulders. Complete the look by wearing tan strappy sandals and an oversized sunhat. Skirts are a great way to sport this trend, as well. The gold chevron design on this skirt gives a little shimmer when you walk! Pair it with something as simple as a tank top for a perfect look day or night. High-low dresses and skirts are a trend that flatters everyone because it allows you to show a little leg while still having the chicness of the maxi skirt. This is a great trend especially for those of you who feel you are too short to wear a maxi dress. Get the best of both worlds and wear a high-low dress.
