understated genius.

The mullet cut seemed to really take “try, try again” pretty seriously. It didn’t work on hair in the 80’s, 90’s, or the 2000’s, but the mullet wasn’t fazed — decades later, it’s back — this time in our skirts, shirts, and more (and this time, it’s business in the back, party in the front!).

Though we’ve seen the trend on the runways of Wes Gordon, Jason Wu, Diane von Furstenberg and more, it seems to be getting more attention on high street than in high fashion. For a style that’s so sartorial and universally flattering (really, how often does that happen anymore?), I’m disappointed — so to spread the word, here are some of my favorite dip hem items!

Parker Strapless Ruffle Dress, $286.00, Bloomingdales

Hello, graduation dress? It would look great with my fave pair of brown leather Stuart Weitzman wedges…so I think yes.

LOVE Berry Crinkle Asymmetrical Maxi, $75.30, In Love With Fashion 

That flowy chiffon is gorgy. The wrap effect in the front (check out the link above) adds to the movement of the skirt, and the way fabric moves is what I’m most inspired by.


Sparkle & Fade High/Low Knit Midi Skirt, $49, Urban Outfitters

No midi skirt has ever looked good on me except for this one, which, on my 5 foot frame, is practically a max skirt. Oh well.

Meanwhile, I’m on the lookout for a high-low sleeveless chiffon button-up…let me know if you see one somewhere?
