High-low dresses are a great item to have in your closet. In the front, the short hemline hits just at the knees--or in some cases it hits above the knee--but the back of the dress is an entirely different story. High-low dresses can swing low to the ankle in the back, or they can even come with a dramatic train that grazes the floor. Whether you’re looking for a casual day frock or something for the evening, high-low dresses are super easy to style. Here are some ideas.

Styling high-low dresses for daytime


Shop brands like BCBGeneration and Alice + Olivia for relaxed dresses with an asymmetrical hemline. Slip on strappy metallic sandals and cinch the waist with a thin woven belt and you’re ready to go.

Styling high-low dresses for the evening


Look for something with some drama. Brands like Haute Hippie and Laundry By Shelli Segal make high low dresses in delicate chiffons and soft silks. Slip on a pair of metallic high heels and a sparkling necklace for a cocktail party or night on the town.

    Please read before ordering! I actually call this dress: ' i will love you forever, no matter what size you are' size: one size fits s-m-l fabric: vintage wash brushed poly blend, it is supper soft but a bit sheer, therefore nude undergarments or shape wear is recommended. Hand wash, hang to dry. A belt made out of the same fabric comes with this dress. Choose the style of a belt: braided or thin strap. This dress is designed to balance a figure with narrow shoulders and wide hips. I would recommend it to anyone who is size s-m on the top and any size on the bottom. This style will make you look elegant at any moment of your life. It does an amazing job for pear-shaped and hourglass figures. It is longer in the back almost to the ground if you are 5'4', and shorter in the front just above the knee. It is draped on both sides. Our model wears size xs on the top and size m on the bottom, has b-cup, height 5'6'. Her shape is a pear.
