Hi-low hemline trend slowly creeped into stardom. Now, hi-low dresses and skirts are well-loved by girls for summer. Many celebrities were also spotted wearing the trend. Some creating casual playful takes while others went for elegant looks. Several hi-low dresses were also paraded in the catwalk.
There is something sophisticated with the hi-low hemline. Perhaps it´s its ability to elongate your vertical line. The peekaboo at the front shows more skin, and since the hemlines usually hit just a little below the tip of your fingertip, the front look is very proportion to your height; both contribute to the lengthening of your vertical silhouette. The back look adds modesty. You only how off skin at the front but the back is well covered.
Inspired by these four celebrities: Nicole Ritchie, Eva Amurri, Vanessa Hudgen, and Nina Dobrev, here´s how to wear a hi-low dress fabulously.
1. Wear a monochrome dress with matching shoes
Going monochrome the entire look makes you look taller than you really are. This is especially perfect if you´re petite. As seen here on Nicole Ritchie, choose a monochromatic hi-low dress in cut that flatters your shape and add a matching pair of heels.

2. Throw a jacket over a printed hi-low dress
Eva Amurri looked very elegant in a printed hi-low dress polished by a jacket. She chose the jacket that complements the dress and finished the look with sandals that match the jacket. This is a very put-together look.

3. Go for an airy white dress for a casual summer day
To get Vanessa Hudgen´s fresh and relaxed summer look, go for a white roomy dress with hi-low hemlines. Pair it with nude platforms or statement flats, then accessorize with long tribal necklaces. This is all about creating a boho look so feel free to grab your drape bag.

4. Express yourself in a playful and girly hi-low dress
For a playful take on this trend, mimic Nina Dobrev´s style. She wore a dotted hi-low with sheer detailing. Also, the volume in her skirt made her look much younger. Add metallic shoes to accent the polka-dot.
