Spring Peek: High/Low Hemlines

What's the saying? When the economy is tight, hemlines go up? Yes. So when the economy is really tight, hemlines go into a frenzied high/low hemline state? Apparently. This skirt silhouette, seen mainly on dresses on the Spring runways, is part provocative, part princess. However, Balmain's bondage high/low dresses were positively provocative (left). The princess was spotted at Nina Ricci and its Edwardian frocks and Temperley's dreamy poufy white dress. Just when I thought I'd experimented with every hemline, Spring presents a new one. Rocky economy aside, these are rockin'.

This trend does nothing for me...it takes you from something that could be cute and chic straight into "Flamenco dancer" territory, and that's a place I just don't want to go. I'll keep my thighs under wraps, thanks!
