Asymmetrical hemlines have garnered a lot of attention this year. By now, you all have to know about the high low hem, although it goes by many other names including the fishtail and the mullet hem, that has been featured on nearly every trend watching blog out there. This week’s Fashionista kept in line with this summer’s interesting hemline trend, but in a very different way.

The surprisingly jagged hem of this Fashionista’s maxi skirt gives off a playfully bohemian vibe. The black lacey skirt is breezy enough for the summer heat, and it will also transition perfectly into fall when paired with a long, sloppy sweater. Thank goodness most sheer skirts come with a built in slip! But we still have plenty of ninety degree days ahead of us, so let’s talk about what makes this outfit great for summer.

When you wear an interesting hemline, I think it’s best to keep the rest of the outfit relatively simple with a cropped white T-shirt and chic sunglasses like the round sunnies this Fashionista dons. I also love that she mixes brown accessories with her black skirt. If you prefer to add some color, a statement necklace would be the perfect place to do it — one of my favorites is J.Crew’s Bubble necklace.  

No doubt this trend will catch on quickly, but right now there are only a few options I could find online including one from the reigning experts on boho: Free People. Anthropologie also offers us their take on the jagged hem dress.
