Hello Chic girls! As summer comes into full swing we are constantly wearing dresses. You can wear sun dresses, cocktail and even formal dresses.. for example prom dresses! But when it comes to dresses, who is able to step out of the norm? What is going to be the new thing, the way wedges were to heels? At Chic to Chic we consider the “High Low” dress, the fashion statement to go outside the “dress box” this summer!

Most see the “High Low” dress as a daunting feat that can look awkward or strange depending on height and body shape, but I am here to show you lovely Chic ladies that these fears are filed under false pretenses! EVERYONE can rock the “High Low” dress this summer!!!!!

When wearing a High Low dress everyday, most girls are scared due to┬ámyths of being too short or not the “right” body shape. But these fears are irrelevant in our Chic world! For ladies that fear the height restriction, us Chic girls recommend a high low style that is not as dramatic. This will elongate your legs by showing more skin to create the illusion that you have more to show!

Casual High Low –

Making a high low dress casual can be done in multiple different ways. Try pairing it with sandals and simple jewelry or a jean jacket and a messenger bag. The perfect Chic girl summer outfit is completely and totally accessible with the high low style.

In this super cute high low look, we paired the skirt with a crop top and statement necklace. Pulling the gold tones from the necklace, we were able to finish the look with this to die for metallic messenger bag.
