I am forever grateful to my sister-in-law for introducing me to Bill Cunningham, New York Times photographer and street style guru.  How did I not know him?  He is amazing!  He rides around the city on his bike and gets great perspective on today's fashion.  Get to know this man; you'll be glad. 

He recently reported on the "hi-lo" trend.  You know the look --dresses that are shorter in front than in back.  For a while, designers made the difference in length look almost like a mistake, rather than an intentional design.  This summer, though, it seems like dresses and skirts are making a more meaningful statement with extreme contrasts in hem length.  I blogged about (and purchased) this one from Shopbop, which has already garnered tons of compliments (and is incredibly comfortable):

No longer available at Shopbop, but I found it on sale at Amazon.
Bill (Mr. Cunningham?) has a way of finding the interest in every trend, even if you get the feeling he doesn't care for it.  I still don't know how he feels about this hi-lo trend, though I suspect he doesn't hate it.  He compares it to a woman's perfume, which stays with you even after she passes you by on the street.  Take a look at his video:

What do you think about the mini in the front/maxi in the back?

Do you need some suggestions on what trends work for you?  I would love to help you make all of these ideas part of your everyday routine. If you want to know more about my personal styling services in Richmond, VA, I would love to hear from you. Let's connect!
