Blunt ends on skirts are soooo last year. Haven’t you heard? High Low is the new Black ….If I had to type like that more than 3 sentences I might kick myself in the head. But it’s true! Everywhere gyaru brands are doing different skirt hems for summer.
High low skirts are great for those ladies who want to show off their legs. They’re also kind to legs. Cellulite is more evident on the back of the leg where the lack of big muscles are. Knees and big quad muscles tend to break up the evidence of minor cellulite.
Lots of styles to choose from and you may notice it totally differs how HIGH and how LOW the skirt goes. Mini, midi, maxi they’re all here. Side high, front high, just no back high (that’d be hella funny though :yayforyay: ).
Handkerchief skirts are kind of a rift of the high-low. Enough were showing up to make note of them. I really love the dancer-style Lip Service one.
If you didn’t notice pastels are showing up with this trend. They work so well with layers and chiffon as well. Handkerchief skirts are best for those who aren’t too confident with their legs or just don’t want to show them. The emphasis is on the bottom which draws away from hips and thighs.
These skirts are difficult to balance with a top. The off shoulder type like Laguna Moon and Lip Service above works best. Nothing puffy or dolman sleeved unless the skirt is short, like Love Boat’s styling.
Western brands are showing that they can do high-low. However a) the price was around $60 on the karmaloop & nastygal ones, so pretty much the same price as gal brands ….and b) they’re not as visually pleasing as some of the better chiffon layered ones above.
