We love this trend; take a dress and jazz it up a bit with a short front and longer, trailing back. Be warned, this trend doesn't suit all body types - it's all about choosing the right kind of length differentiation. If you're short, go for a maxi-dress length, with a short lift in the front (like number 4 and 5). Petite girls will love the shorter dresses that expose the legs a bit more, like number 6. Try on a host of different size variations and see what you feel most comfortable in. Summer is almost over, so take this trend by the horns and wear summer out with pride.
1// This high-low white skirt is the perfect addition to any office or weekend wardrobe. Wear it with flats for a casual weekend day and rock it out with platforms for a mid-week fashion rush. We love the versatility of it as a skirt - you can play with the top half of your outfit and get a lot of looks from one item.
2// This lacy little number is perfect for date night or a special occasion The lacey middle will show off a little bit of flesh, while the dark colour and longer length keep it formal.
3// This is for the fashion diva's out there - a bold print with a razor back top is perfect for a day on the beach promenade Keep the crazy to a minimum and pair this dress with simple, black accessories like chunky bracelets and gold sandals to accent the belt.
4// This is a great staple dress that can be dressed up or down because of it's solid colour. Gold accessories will really make this dress pop, so add a waist belt and some chunky earrings to complete the look.
5// We love the different pattern of this dress and think it would look great with tribal and earth inspired accessories like a woven clutch and wooden bangles. Team it up with a black blazer to formalise it a bit more.
6// This is a great formal cocktail style dress and would be perfect for a wedding or any other special occasion. Keep the accessories to a minimum to let the dress speak for itself. Strappy heels and a silver clutch should do the trick.
