Spied on the Street: High Hemlines

Persons of Interest, Street Style  /   /  By Sarah Wetmore

With all the love we’ve been showing for ‘70s-inspired fashion trends here on Style Stories, it’s about time we share the warm fuzzy feelings with another—equally as fierce—decade of fashion. Which slice of history do we have to thank for clean lines, mini shifts, graphic eyeliner, black ankle boots, round-frame sunglasses, and structured satchels? The majorly mod ‘60s, of course!

Spotted on Carven’s recent runway and NYFW street style savants, high hemlines are officially having a moment, and we’ve got hot tips for how to flaunt this flirty silhouette. Mimic unofficial ambassador for all things mod Alexa Chung by pairing shift dresses with chic turtlenecks, patent leather ankle boots with lots o’ leg, A-line button front suede skirts with tights plus a little silk neck scarf, and cropped jackets with mini skirts.

Naturally, Topshop is a great label for ‘60s-inspired footwear. Keep in mind that patent dresses up your look—perfect for holiday party season! For round-frame sunglasses, search for retro styles by The Row, Miu Miu, and Prada. When it comes to a sturdy structured leather bag to balance the amount of thigh you’ll be flashing, look no further than Saint Laurent, Gucci, and Mulberry. And for an effortless graphic black cat eye to complete your look, no one can touch Benefit’s they’re real! push-up eyeliner.
