Design Element: The High-Low Dress

1. Michael Stars Alba Dress $168 (photo via but link is to Revolve because they have all sizes in stock). 
2. Forever 21 Sleeveless High Low Dress: $29.80.
3. Forever 21 Ruffled High Low Dress: $22.80.
4. Urban Outfitters Reverse Lattice Waist $68 - A little cowgirl, a little floral and you have to be a lot brave to wear this (the middle section is open).
5. Phoebe Couture Pleated High Low Dress $390.
6. Delias Floral High Low Dress $44.50.  I think this is the best buy out of all of my picks! The picture on the site of the dress on the model gives a much better idea of how cute this one really is.
7. Forever 21 Flounce High-Low Dress $24.80
8. Parker Ruffled Strapless Dress $262.

Did you notice how my collage is shaped like a high-low hemline.  NO?
Use your imagination :/
DVF Carsandra Dress (that's not a typo) $375, all sizes available here.

Readers: what do you think of this trend? I particularly love it on longer dresses with hems that graze the floor.  Do you feel this is a passing trend that should already just...pass?

Haha, you're too funny (re: collage shape). I like the look where the high/low isn't super pronounced... those dresses where it's really short in the front and touches the ground in the back are not my faves.

xo, alison*elle

Personally, I like the high-low hems. Plus, once it eventually goes out of style, you can chop off the back of the hem and have a shorter dress!

I have been into dresses at the moment, find them to be so comfy, stylish and cool for the summer. Love them all.

OOH I really like this post so much (and you know I like this trend hehe) but I think it's such new style and #5 on here I love. Wish it was a little lower priced, but oh well. :) The floral one is so cute!

Thanks so much sharing these
