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