I've often referred to them as mullet skirts--short in the front, long in the back. They've never been my favorite look on celebrities or runways. Most of the time, it seems like a better idea just to commit to a skirt length. However, the most recent crop of high low skirts is more casual coming in jersey knits and summer prints at stores like Target and H&M. Something about them makes the pig-tail-wearing, dress-up-playing little girl inside me squeal, "Pretty! Princess!" I keep trying them on, but I just don't care for how they look on.
What do you think? Attractive as a mullet or princess pretty?
I love Miu Miu's harlequin themed show from Spring Summer 2008, especially this sweetly sexy striped mini dress. Kensie created a cute green version that's more wearable for everyday life. It's $118 at Macy's and perfect for spring. Now if I could find an inexpensive version of that show's teacup heels...
Thank you 3.1 Philip Lim! You've appeased my co-desires for wearability and an edge of funk. Love the ruffled sequin tops. Love the layered zips. Love the ruffled shoes. The shoes!!! Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Anna Sui was fabulous Anna Sui with all the prints and colors and tribal influences. Of course, I'm biased in favor of anything that looks like a hippie-gypsy-pirate. Happy! Happy! Again, the shoes are amazing. Kudos to her also for sending out happy models, because smiling should never be out of fashion.Vera Wang, always one of my favorites, was just as sleek, romantic and modern as I would hope. I always like her neutral palette with occasional splashes of color. She used lots of sheer fabrics in this collection, but it's more ethereal than daring. The shiny details also keep things exciting. Image source style.com.
