Hello, high-low!

I can't get high-low skirts off the brain after catching a glimpse of one at the mall last weekend.

(Unfamiliar? You may know them better as mullet skirts, a look pioneering Deal Diva Stephanie introduced unto us last year.)

The one I liked resembled this effortless, slightly Boho skirt from dELiAs.


See? Flirty, accessible, breezy. And it makes me think about bell curves, and other mathematical things I long abandoned for word devotion. What could be so wrong?


Arden B., $79. I heart this sweet one-shoulder dress, bearing many trends in a single look. Color-blocking: HOT RIGHT NOW. And it seems like a flattering, flowy fit for girls with curves and without 'em. But, $$$.


I'm admiring the tumbling chiffon raked in by a thin belt. But $59.99? Yeah, I just checked, and none of my friends are getting married this summer. There will be no attempts to justify excessive purchases today. Not here, not now. Next.


Dillards, $29.40. I loved so much about this dress -- the stripes, waist tie, simplicity, etc. -- until the critical high-low part, stained with Kool-Aid, I guess. Why did it have to be this way?


Target, $24.99. I see a chunky leather waistbelt to offset the ruffles. Strappy sandals. A breezy lightwash denim jacket, sunglasses and a picnic basket for the beach. With a baguette.


We could try it with this cheerful tangerine take from Forever 21 ($22.80). (And think of the much-needed tanning opportunities!)


Forever 21, $19.80. This curve is as modest as it gets -- perfect for ladies who just want to nibble at the trend without ringing alarms. I would add a chunky necklace.

These dresses are everywhere, folks. Has anyone else taken a dip? And don't be shy if you don't like the business-in-front, party-in-back fad.
