STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Hello High-Low

Style Advice of the Week

The high-low trend has been amongst us for nearly a year now and I applaud anyone who can still rock this look. A lot of times with trends like this, they die down simply due to lack of creativity and innovation. It's important that Fashionista/os bring life and energy to what could be a dying trend.

This Fashionista in the park, in the most simplest of ways, has given the high-low trend a new life. The white T-shirt had a lot to do with it, but maybe the shirt in conjunction with the motorcycle boots combined with the ripped shorts played to my inner bad girl. Whatever the case may be, the relaxed nature of the outfit was enough to intrigue myself and my camera. 

I’ve always been a fan of the high-low look. It’s kind of like a reverse mullet — party in the front, business in the back — and has a place in every conceivable venue. While this Fashionista opted to wear this trend in the form of a T-shirt, high-low silhouettes have found their way into our hearts and into our closets.

Take this cut-out jersey dress from LuLu's. While the difference between the front and the back isn’t as dramatic as this Fashionista’s, it still gives off the same vibe. Or what about this maxi cardigan from Free People? It gives you that chance to play with the high-low trend without necessarily making it the focal point of your outfit.

Playiing with this trend, especially in the fall, is a great way to add dimension to your outfitts. Take pride in rejuvinating a trend on the brink of extinction.

STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Hello High Low

Style Advice of the Week

Ever wonder how to pull off the bohemian look without looking too hippie? This fashionista does it well. Attending many music festivals herself, this stylish lady knows how to embrace her personal style.  Hair accesorries, fringe boots and a jean jacket compliment each other perfectly for a music festival feel. She doesn't overload on any certain aspect which leaves this look simple, and classy.

The high- low skirt is the trendy piece out of her look, and by wearing this she does not let the style of our generation get away. This CollegeFashionista accomplishes her look much like Free People would.  The high-low skirt can be seen many different ways. Jason Wu designed a high-low skirt with pleats giving it a preppy feel, this was seen on Spring 2012 Runway. This ensemble is perfect for Florida's brutal heat, a high-low skirt being the most comfortable thing to wear to easily be cooled off.  If you are not from the South like us, pair it with some type of boot and a sweater and you can still rock this apparatus. To add more of an edge with your skirt, try a solid color high-low skirt and accesorize with studs and cuffs. If you prefer a more girly look, scope out bold colors and pretty patterns in the skirt.

If you love Nikki's costume but just want to change it up a bit, stick with the floral printed skirt, add strappy gladiator sandals, and many gold bangles the bohemian feel will come!
