How to Wear: High Low Tops

5.15.2012 WRITTEN BY Ellie How to Wear, Shopping trends, T+P Blog Central

High low tops, or shirts with an asymmetrical hem are a BIG trend for spring! But how do you wear these? If you were as confused as me by these tops then read on.

I snapped this picture at a boutique in Wicker Park in Chicago. I love how they styled this blouse with shorts, a cute belt, and the shirt half tucked. Here’s how you can wear this fun look two different ways:

Things to remember when wearing this new trend:

1.) It’s all about playing with proportions. It can be a really leg-lengthening look (even for you shorties out there!) when paired with a great wedge heel. The shorter hem in front gives the illusion of super long gams!

2.) When going with a simple white blouse, pile on those accessories! The high-low hem sets the stage for some fun hats and jewelry.

3.) Many of these shirts are sheer, so wear a layering cami or bralette underneath — another great way to add interest and texture to the high-low look.

    Great tips! I have totally embraced the high/low trend this season as well. One of my go to looks is a solid high/low skirt with a basic white tee tucked in. Add a few fun accessories and the compliments will abound!
