Most of my clients enjoy wearing knitwear with high-low hemlines (hemlines that are higher in front and lower in the back). I do too. For one, the styling detail has reinvented pullovers for those who wear knitwear for at least half of the year. Nice change! Second, the asymmetrical hemline provides structure to the oversized silhouette. The shorter front prevents that feeling that you are drowning in the style. Third, the shape is comfortable and cozy. And fourth, the visual effect is interesting. 

High-low knitwear comes in various lengths and shapes. Some of the silhouettes are as short as cropped tops in front, and I like those versions best with roomy bottoms like baggy jeans, baggy pants, slouchy trousers or a pencil skirt. Longer high-low pullovers look fab over sleek bottoms like straight legs and skinnies. And every so often, a roomy and longer high-low pullover looks amazing over roomy bottoms (the “volume on top of volume” trend), but that is a harder combination to get right. 

Do you enjoy wearing high-low knitwear, and do my reasons for liking the silhouette resonate with you?
