Thanks to an abundance of very creative fashion designers, we’ve been able to get over the stereotypical box shaped skirt into more interesting and eye catching silhouettes. When Christian Dior introduced the “New Look” in the late 1940s, fashion starved women embraced the new shape, and the style spread like a wildfire. Can we dare say the same about the high-low skirt? While we don’t walk around with fancy fans while wearing it, the high-low skirt makes casual day regal and has spread its wings from red carpets to college campuses everywhere. While this skirt is passed its introductory year, it’s become a staple of warm weather and a wardrobe must-have.
High-low skirts are easy to wear and can replace your sweats on a “comfy day.” They are also a great way to transition into warmer weather. With this trend you can show off just the right amount of leg and shoe without showing too much. With the right length, this can also give us short girls a boost. Try a high-low skirt with the front hemline above your knee and the back hemline almost floor length. This will give the illusion you’re a little taller than you really are. Take this Fashionista into consideration; she’s giving us mini-skirt from the front but ball gown from the back.
This Fashionista not only rocked the high-low trend, but a few others as well: neon and ruffles. Both trends complement each other as her skirt dons a few light ruffles too. Her printed top also serves as a perfect match for her neon bottom. Try your neon with a darker print to give a glam punk look.
One of the best things about high-low skirts are the never ending variations you can find. There’s a high-low skirt out there for every adoring girl. Don’t leave it at just skirts with this trend either. Try high-low shirts and dresses too. Try this neon lace high-low dress from Forever 21, Urban Outfitters’ UNIF Acid Cat High/Low Oversized Tee and Topshop’s Lace Insert High-Low Maxi Skirt.
Try them all and don’t forget to flaunt how fabulous you are when your piece billows in the wind as you walk.
