It’s a great time to test drive modern dress silhouettes for your weekend festivities. Not sure how to make heads or tails of these cool new cuts? Here’s a breakdown of three trending styles, along with tips on how to style them for an elevated look.
For a little party in the front, business in the back, look no further than a hi-lo hemline. This style offers a cascading effect as the hemline gets longer in the rear. The trend debuted last year & is making a comeback! Look for this hemline on a sleeveless shift dress, then layer on a cargo vest or cropped denim jacket for a concert or casual night out. Opt for a jacket/vest that is tailored to define your waistline which will create a more slimming silhouette.
For some added whimsy, give this dress trend a try! Bohemian flair on the rise, so it’s no wonder that we are seeing this uneven hemline around. The jagged edges & flowy fabrics ooze carefree spirit. When styling, keep your accessories to a minimum so that the dress remains the center focus. Strappy gladiator sandals with a few stacked bracelets is all you need to make an impression.
The asymmetrical hemline is the sister the hi-lo. Typically you will see this cut on skirts & fitted dresses in solid colors for both daytime & formal affairs. It’s a great way to show off all the hard work you’ve been putting in at the gym by letting your gams play a game of peek-a-boo out of a swooping side slit. When worn with a casual skirt, a slouchy boyfriend tee loosely tucked in will balance out the fitted nature of the skirt. Let your shoes shine through a little more with this dress with an embellished sandal.
