Spring Essential: High-low skirts
Posted by on April 16, 2012 | 2:16 pm EST

Our list of spring must-haves is growing by the second. With designers’ spring collections slowly filling up stores and online retailers, we’ve been keeping watch of the ones to nab. First on our list is the piece we’ve been seeing everywhere lately—the high-low skirt.

These edgier spring essential offers the flirty aesthetic of minis, while leaving a trail of modesty captured by maxis which are exactly the precise reasons why we’re counting these as a must in your spring wardrobe. We’ve gathered three of the best variations of this trend, which should be in your spring shopping list if you know better.

Christopher Kane | Pleated cutaway skirt | $1,032

This Christopher Kane cutaway skirt will be an easy piece to wear all throughout the spring season. The collision between the accordion pleats and the high-low hem took this otherwise pink-and-simple skirt into a closet necessity. The back hem which falls just above the back of the knee, and the front hem which grazes mid-thigh, creates a slightly flirty finish—just fitting for the season.

Jason Wu | Cascade-back charmeuse skirt | $990

Jason Wu was one of the designers to heavily feature the high-low trend on the spring catwalk, thus it’s only fitting that we pluck out a standout skirt from the lot. The punchy citron shade of this charmeuse skirt quickly caught our attention, but it wasn’t until we spotted the voluminous cascading detail on the back that we really zoomed in on this piece. This refreshingly different approach on the high-low trend made for one elegant and vibrant skirt worthy of a space in your spring wardrobe.

Patterson J. Kincaid | Ziggy feather detail high-low skirt | $168

There’s something enigmatic and dramatic about this high-low skirt from Patterson J. Kincaid. Although maxi skirts remain every bit on trend this spring, the floor-length back hem of this skirt has us thinking of sending our favorite maxi skirts into retirement. The drawstring waistband exudes a hint of bohemian inspiration while the deep purple crepe fabric lets your look transition from day to night as well.
