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.
