My first post is about the high-low phenomenon. Technically, high-low hems have been around since the Victorian era (think 1870s) when evening gowns were cut shorter in the front and longer in the back, but today's fashion is on a different level. There are even high-low hems for tops. I honestly hope this trend sticks around for awhile; I love mini skirts but a longer hem adds an edginess and class at the same time. High-lows are the best of both worlds. Here are some of my favorite looks, as well as a couple of my own pieces.
Supermodel Miranda Kerr in an Eva Brazzi evening dress

The "Abbey" skirt by UNIF. $60 on Urban and UNIF

Reverse high-low? This tank showcases high-waisted bottoms...
My favorite high-low skirt - Akira Chicago Fall 2011. This phone picture doesn't do it justice
