Trend Alert: High-Low Skirts/Dresses

It is without a doubt that the high-low hemline is IN for this summer. It’s everywhere! Have you ever had a hard time deciding between wearing a mini skirt or a maxi skirt or between a mid-length dress or a maxi dress? Well, high-low skirts and dresses serve as a great compromise. Think of it as having the best of both worlds! The unique hemline adds a flirtatious feel to these clothing items, allowing for you to show off your legs in a new, eye-catching way. Paired with a nice pair of heels, your outfit can instantly be transformed into one suitable for a dressy occasion – maybe a first date? OR wear your high-low skirt or dress with a good pair of sandals or wedges for a more casual feel. Below are two ideas for styling both a high-low skirt and dress:

Trend Alert: Fair Isle Sweaters

It’s that time of year again when it starts getting cold enough to numb your nose and toes. So it is of no surprise that you see everyone sporting their favorite sweaters, particularly fair aisle sweaters! I’m sure you’ve seen them too. You know, the ones with the unique patterns that are reminiscent of what people refer to as “tacky sweaters” but with a more fashionable twist.

Fair Isle actually refers to a type of knitting technique that uses multiple colors and patterns. The name stems from an island located north of Scotland. These sweaters became popular after the Prince of Wales – or Edward VIII – wore a Fair Isle tank top out in public in 1921. Talk about starting a trend!

There are many ways to wear this type of sweater. You could keep it simple and pair it with jeans and riding boots. If long enough, you could wear it underneath leggings, jeggings, or tights along with a cute pair of flats or oxfords. Also, don’t neglect your accessories! I love wearing long necklaces and some arm candy with sweaters to take my outfit to the next level.

Want to indulge in the trend? Check out a few of the fair aisle sweaters I have found below:
