Yes, it’s the monsoons season, but with no sign of the rains it seems more like the summer. And summers are the perfect season to flaunt the season’s must-have fashion essential dress… the High-Low. The high-low hemlines are soaring into every fashionistas wardrobes this season for its unique and gorgeous asymmetric lengths in beautiful flowy fabrics. With the hem being high in the front and low at the back, it’s the perfect dress to show off those summer tanned legs. Most common style of high low dresses is either halter or strapless, exposing the cheeky collar bones or those sculpted shoulders. The best ones are the ones in bright tones with floral or animal prints that you can pair with shaped accessories as they complement the exposed shoulders. 

Sometimes it is a great idea to crunch the dress with a broad belt just below the bust line to break the solid monotone aspect of the dress and accentuate the waistline. You can also add a bolero with a high-low dress that completely changes the entire look. Ideally the right shoes to wear with an asymmetric dress is high heels, wedges or boots as they add height and allow a beautiful flow to the dress. 

On my recent trip to Sri Lanka, I wore this gorgeous High-Low dress from Marks & Spencer's Holiday Collection for my date with the tea plantations. It was a perfect choice to stand out during our tea plantation tour at the Heritance Tea Factory Hotel; orange against the green the perfect backdrop. However I chose flats instead of heels as it was a good 2-3 hour walk around the plantation and with a baby in tow who wanted to risk falling down. I accessorized my look with a simple rectangular beige-brown earring pendant combo and beige-brown Miss Bennett London ballet shoes. 

It was a perfect color to flaunt in the gorgeous blue-green backdrop of SriLanka. 

Hit or Miss?
