Hemlines go in new directions this season. In fact they have a split personality!
A lesser person might think this an identity crisis. Fashionistas know that the graduated hemline is super chic. Turned out with couture like precision in polished fabrications for spring or in airy, almost sheer fabrications for summer, the looks is eye catching, easy to wear and accentuates one of women’s best assets, a well turned ankle.
From sleeveless to long sleeve, from dressed up to casual, the season’s split level hemlines, short in front, floor length in back are garnering a lot of attention. We like them as they’re light and airy for summer, striking for spring. Some designers are even showing them over slim pants for a super chic easy style.
As with most new items of attire, the right proportion must be balanced with footwear and accessories. A platform sandal or high heel wedge strikes just the right note. Graduated multi-strand or stone earrings and shorter pendants or necklaces, or a pendant on cord provides adjustability. Add some bracelets and you’re the center of attention.
