Sure, skirts that are short at the front and flow into a sweeping train at the back have been on your style radar for a while now, but have you met their slicker older sis, the angular hi-lo hemmed skirt? You'll spot it by the straight cutout hem, which creates a peekaboo reveal at the front. Levels of sass are variable, as you can see on (from left) Aluna Francis, Constance Jablonski and Bella Heathcote. At a swanky party in Hollywood Bella (Dark Shadows actress and face of Miu Miu) went for a structured knee-length option, limiting the flash but none of the cool. Then at the other end other scale, singer Aluna worked a hawt slashed-and-sheer dress version at ELLE's Women In Music event in LA, while model Constance went for a hi-lo hem somewhere in between at a Chanel party in New York. Whaddya reckon – up (or down) for it?

Why off-the-shoulder tops and dresses are on the radar.
