Style File: High-Low Everything!
by ATFDC Contributor Jessica Danyele Gold
This season, high-lows are taking over fashion. Blouses, skirts, and even maxi dresses are cut into this design allowing the person wearing it to be elegant, yet sexy. High-low clothing looks exactly how it sounds like it would. The back of the blouse, skirt, or dress is usually significantly longer than the front; some are even cut asymmetrically. High- low blouses look great on every because they complement every body type. High low skirts and dresses however compliment taller and slimmer figures more than any other type. The length of the skirt/dress goes along with their height. If you are shorter, high -low skirts/dresses appear more flattering when paired with a chunky heel. Taller women can get away with wearing a simple sandal.
Looking for high-low dresses in the D.C. area? Arzo Boutique, a men’s and women’s clothing store located at 1019 U Street Northwest D.C. is the place to visit! They are open Monday-Thursday from 12-8 pm, Friday & Sat 12-9 pm, and Sunday 12-6 pm.
