Spring Trend: High-Low Hem



You can be an early style adopter, and make amazing statements, in small doses. You will feel fashion forward making simple style adjustments, and your peeps will take notice!

New fashion trends can be overwhelming! You may say – I can’t pull that off …and, I’m not spending the money to try something completely new.

Solution. My take on adopting trends is to start small, simple, and easy.  If it takes you time to feel comfortable in a new fashion trend, start in small doses.

Here’s a trend I cannot WAIT to try this spring, and ANYONE can easily pull it off.

The High-Low Hem

I’m so intrigued by this trend for a two basic reason.  It’s unexpected.  The style can be worn with a very minimalistic outfit, and adding an unexpected cut to your hemline can instantly elevate your entire style.

Do you love shoes?  The High-Low is just the ticket for you, dear friend. You can showcase your amazing stylish shoes and all their glory.  Heels, don’t hide them.  Flats, flaunt them. Booties, be bold – stomp in them.

I sourced three styles of jeans from blue in three colors to show you how easy it is to make your High-Low Hem.




Drumroll please – each pair you see costs not a penny more than $16.  Compare that to paying $120 on a factory styled “designer” pair….nope, not you!

 4 steps to your Spring Trend

  1. Go to blue and find a pair (or 2) of slim, skinny, or bootcut jean, your preference.
  2. Once home, use pair of sharp shears and cut the bottom hemline completely off.
  3.  Then, on the FRONT of the jean ONLY, measure up 2 1/2 inches on each side, and mark measurements with a pencil, or lip liner, like I used…FullSizeRender 32w
  4. Cut up to your marking on the inner seam, then…cut straight across.

Style your jeans with any top you feel comfortable and relaxed in. However, keep your top simple.  Don’t distract from your design work! You want people to notice your High-Low Hem.

You CAN be an early adopter, and make amazing style statements, in small doses.

Try the High-Low Hem.
