Crimes of Fashion, Dresses

The high-low dress gets a makeover, is still inexplicable

high-low dresses

When we heard that the high-low dress had been re-invented, we were ecstatic. “About time!” we said. “These things have only been fashionable for a short time, and we’re already sick of the infernal things!”

[For the benefit of the uninitiated, a “high-low” dress is one which is short at the front, but long at the back – or sometimes long at the sides, with two floaty side-panels surrounding a mini-skirt. You may also know it as the “mullet dress”. We certainly do.]

It’s not that we HATE the high-low dress, you understand. As fashion crimes go, there are much bigger ones out there. It’s just that every time we see one (Which is a lot. You can’t look at fashion blogs these days without encountering at least one high-low dress for every few minutes of viewing) we just wish the wearer would make up her mind. Mini or maxi: it’s not rocket science, folks!

So, what we’re trying to say is that we’re glad someone (in this case, our old friends Acne. And no, we still can’t type that brand name without wondering what they were thinking, naming themselves after a skin disease…) decided to do something a bit different with this style. We’re just disappointed that it turned out like THIS. Seriously, guys, you could’ve done anything, but you chose to  just move the mullet section off to the side. Is the model experiencing different weather conditions the left side of her body? Did she only have time to shave one leg?

In the absence of other explanations, we’re going to go with that last one. Shaving is such a pain, isn’t it? Thank goodness we can pay $580 for this dress instead!
