Fall ’08 Trends. Fall’s Hemlines

July 30, 2008 • Fashion

Sorry it took so long. I know we have been avoiding discussing fall. What can I say? Summer is too short and I’m still enjoying my cotton dresses and thong sandals. However, the time has come do deal with the fact that fall is just around the corner. Is it just me or are the leaves already starting to turn?

Every fall one of the first questions we get asked is…where do hemlines fall for fall? Are they up? Are they down? Do I need to alter all of my skirts and dresses or just scrap them and buy all new? Well, I’m here to share the good news with you now. Hemlines are all over the place for Fall 2008. Anything goes! Can’t commit? This is your lucky season!

Short, Short, Short!
