Get comfortable with the high-low hem trend: How to wear it now and later

Posted on by Alyssa Thomas

It’s everywhere: the high-low hem. It can be seen on skirts, dresses, tops, tanks and even jackets. I have found that some people are skeptical about this trend ["I love this! Except for this weird hemline. What is that all about?!"] so I thought I’d show how easy it is to wear and how cute it is! I love that designers are playing with hemlines on ready-to-wear, comfy, easy-to-wear clothes. Just another great example of how style and comfort can – and should – go hand-in-hand. :)

Bethany and I put some outfits together with pieces with high-low hems – how to wear it now and how to wear it later, for spring/summer.
