A new style trend for skirts this spring/summer features a unique high-low hemline. The high-low hemline, short in the front/long in the back, is like wearing a mini-skirt and a maxi-skirt all-in-one. This playful look shows the perfect amount of skin without being too daring.
This style is uber flattering on any body shape. The asymmetric hemline creates a lengthening effect that instantly makes legs appear longer. Showing-off a little leg can be an effective way to elongate the entire frame.
Styling these skirts is simple. Depending on the color or print of the skirt, it is always safe to coordinate with pared-down basics. Try a simple tee, tank or my favorite – a slouchy grey sweatshirt top. The high-low hemline provides the perfect showcase for this season’s quintessential shoe. Show off your favorite flats, sandals, wedges or booties.
The high-low skirt is available everywhere in a multitude of colors, prints and textures. Here are 5 under $50:
Zara ~ Skirt with Asymmetric Hem: $39.90
Asos ~ River Island Heart Hi-Lo Midi Skirt: $38.27

Summer is quickly coming to an end. Transition into fall style facilely with one simple piece. A comfy knit sweater can pair with any of your summer-basics: maxi dress, maxi skirt, flirty skirt or cut-off jean shorts. Inevitably already in your closet, a heather gray sweater coordinates impeccably with many color palettes and prints.
This fine-knit fishtail sweater by 3.1 Phillip Lim adds a nice twist to the run-of-the-mill sweater. The fishtail detail provides a modern edge and complimentary shape. Pair this piece with Fall’s snakeskin pant or leather shorts for an effortlessly casual style.

This weekend relax in a maxi skirt and racerback, or dress it up by adding some chunky heels and jewels.
The maxi skirt trend this season is one of my favorites, due to its comfort and ease. This ella moss black maxi is a great casual-chic basic that can be worn running errands, to the beach or out on the town.
Maxi skirts will be a staple in every closet this season. They come in an assortment of colors and patterns, styles and fabric. The polished and fluent look of these skirts are feminine and graceful. The maxi skirt is a trend that will continue to flourish in seasons to come.
Have a great weekend!
