If you're not particularly interested in getting all dressed up, you can still embrace the trend in a casual manner. Wear a high-low maxi instead. Add wedge heels or flat sandals, and you're good to go.
Due to its asymmetrical hemline, a high-low dress can go from brunch to happy hour with ease. The high waist top, with full, spin-out bottom makes this style a must-have for your closet. It's trendy, comes in numerous colors, patterns, and lengths, and is ridiculously versatile. Many would argue that this dress is best kept for spring or summer seasons. However, it does possess the potential to rock autumn months if you know how to style a high-low dress correctly. Regardless of when you wish to wear this dress, take a few pointers on accessorizing a high-low dress, and look chic.

The Cocktail Party Dress

Add femininity and drama to your next cocktail party with this gorgeous green dress. Although there are many colors that complement a green dress, gold accessories are my personal favorite. However, if you'd like to try something different this time, you can opt to go with accessories in beige, white, black, and even dark green hues. Just remember that all the items provide your outfit a "finished" look, rather than a forced one.

Meeting your fella for a cuppa? Perhaps a "not so obvious" high-low dress can awaken him! The subtle color and hemline surely makes this dress a true winner for the occasion. Accessorize with some care and subtly; the overall look doesn't require any bold statements. Aim to look classy, but with an attitude that says you're not overlooking the "fun" aspect.

Office parties can be boring. But that doesn't mean your ensemble should correspond with the ambiance. Switch on some drama and pizzazz with a leopard print dress, and accessorize smartly. Since we don't want to make the outfit too revealing or "much too much" for an office party, wear a cute lace shrug.
