I first grew to love the high-low trend a few years ago when I was working as a personal assistant at an alterations shop. A bride came in for alterations on her high-low styled wedding dress and I thought that the shorter hem in the front of the dress was a unique and modern spin on the traditional wedding gown. It had such a business in the back, party in the front feel! While I myself will likely opt for a more traditional wedding dress one day, I do sport this fashion on a pretty regular basis.
While initially the high-low hem trend was seen on dresses and skirts, this eventually reached tops and sweaters. I love that in the case of this white t-shirt, such a simple, average top is turned into a much trendier one! High-low dresses and skirts are great transition pieces from cooler to warmer weather. They also give you the option of showing off your legs, but still provide the comfort of a more conservative look with the longer back.
As far as how to wear the high-low look, skirts look great with a fitted top that is tucked in to really accentuate the style. High-low tops are best paired with skinny jeans or other slim pants. And dresses are perhaps the easiest because they just need the addition of your favorite accessories!
