High/Low Hem Revolution

I'm sure you've seen it everywhere by now. It's totally old hat for me to even mention high/low at this late date in the season. But if you haven't actually bought yourself a piece, you're kind of missing the boat on a major spring/summer trend that's incredibly easy to wear and highly affordable. You can find them everywhere in blouses, knit tops, sweaters, skirts and dresses. As always, I find that a dress is the easiest place to start for a wardrobe staple. It's one piece, just needs accessories to head out the door, and is flattering on everyone. This dress is the perfect workhorse. You can easily doll it up with strappy heels and some gold accessories for an effortless chic night out. A belt and blazer with some flats make it workplace appropriate. Or, wear it casually with a wide belt and some flat gladiators; maybe even a floppy straw hat for a hot summer day. There are myriad solid styles or prints to choose from and Polyvore is an excellent site for browsing. The important thing is to have fun with fashion and try something new.
