Go High-Low: The Season's Hot Hemline

by Jill Manoff

Ultra-flattering and the best of both worlds (It’s a mini in the front, a maxi in the back!), it’s no wonder the high-low hemline is one of the top trends of the season. We’re seeing it everywhere, on a wide range of styles—from tops and flirty skirts to dresses for day and night. Want to know how to wear them? We’ve got your guide.

High Low

Tops
Weather you choose a work-perfect button-down or an easy weekend tee, avoid cinching it and let it flow. Our fave takes include light-as-air styles with fishtail hems that extend to the knees. We finish them off with super-dark skinnies and slim-fit jackets cropped at the waist. (So chic!)

Skirts
We vote this style “Best for Showing Off Great Shoes” (especially wedges!). Wear it high on your waist, and with a simple tank or cami. Feeling more daring? Go for a bandeau instead. As for the skirt itself, most anything goes; we love all of the new floral styles (They’re two trends in one!), but—as the shape “makes” the look—feel free to skip a print.

Dresses
Party in the front? Don’t stop there. Thanks to its cascading hemline, a high-low dress moves when you walk—which gives it look-at-me drama from all angles. We wear it to make an entrance or exit, or when we simply want a style that flatters to the max. (It hides flaws and elongates legs!)
