Spring ’13 Fashion Trend: Hi/Lo Summer Sweaters

May 22, 2013 • Fashion Blog, Trends


I have a confession. Hi/Lo skirts and dress make me crazy. I actually call them ‘mullet’ dresses since they are a party up front and all business in the back or visa versa. At any rate, I can’t stand them and hope they die a quick and painful death. However, when it comes to hi/lo sweaters, I feel quite differently. I love the way they compliment the body and cover what needs to be covered, yet show off a great belt. They are also perfect for layering. So if it comes up a little short on you in the front and you don’t want to expose your abs (nor should you if you are over the age 30) the wear a fitted tank or tee underneath. For summer look for loosely knit cotton or linen. Helmut Lang has mastered the hi/lo sweater. Here are 10 hi/lo summer sweater styles you should consider adding to your wardrobe for those upcoming cool summer nights:
