TREND ALERT! We are obsessing over these high-low hemlines! They are incredibly fun, and terribly chic.
This style has been trying to emerge victorious for quite a while, but this seems to be its year! With designers such as Tara Keely, Oscar de la Renta, and one of our personal favorites, the lovely Monique Lhuillier featuring pieces in their latest collections, the high-low hemline is rising in popularity.
Wedding dresses aren’t the only place that this trend is blowing up. Charlize Theron donned this style at this year’s Golden Globes, and she looked stunning! With legs like that, you ought to show them off.
What is so fab about this cut is it gives you the drama of a long flowing train and the sassiness of showing a little leg (or a lot depending on the dress). The style is quite versatile, with designers using sheer tulle to satin in the creation of the train. This way you can make the look work for your personality.
On a photography note, a dress like this has plenty of benefits, but also a few negatives. On the pro side of things, these gowns provide endless interesting options for shooting. Each angle will make a different statement and very fun posing for the bride. One negative is the risk of tripping. Because the front is short, many brides forget that they have yards of fabric dragging behind them. One quick turn has tripped up many a lovely lady.
So whether you are super trendy, or looking for something super special for your big day, try one of these little beauties on. Your hemline won’t be your only high, but it should be your only low!
