I must admit, the thought of wearing one to work certainly did cross my mind, however, I decided that it may be a slight stretch for my conservative professional working environment. Nevertheless, I never lose hope, perhaps with time, I shall transition this piece discretely and seamlessly into the common repertoire of office-wear =)
Asymmetric, especially, high-low skirts have been quite popular in recent months, particularly over summer. I can certainly understand their popularity; they do not discriminate against girls of certain heights. I like to think of them as the result of a special morph between a mini and a maxi. Super cute and so easy to wear, particularly during hotter months of the year. Formally, a skirt/dress with a longer tail is known as the fishtail, but the informal term is the high-low/mullet dress/skirt. It is such an interesting and ingenious design that manages to show some leg while maintaining the elegant fun-factor of a train, a little party at the front and serious business at the back.
Love it or hate it, this polarizing trend has infiltrated a multitude of runway shows and many have already taken advantage of its versatile powers. If you have ever been conflicted between choosing a mini and a maxi, as it turns out, you can have it all! Should you be in that world of indecisive hemlines and have decided to embrace the high-low skirt/dress, I have no tip other than to make sure you have on a fantastic pair of shoes! =)
