Trend Alert: Tail Hems

As hems rise at the front
hems lower at the back.

This new seasons trend gives us a very happy medium between showing too much leg and looking like a hoochie mama or showing none and feeling like a nun.  If this is how you are feeling this summer, hoochie or nunish, try the
tail hem
on a skirt or shirt!

For those who enjoy a little history when it comes to their fashion:
a tail hem on a shirt was traditionally shorter on both side seams and had a longer tail than front.  - very similar to most mens work shirts today

However, contemporary trends have transformed the look to generally be shorter at the front & longer at the back

"These hems fill the void between mini & midi;
or between midi & maxi.  
They cover yet expose"

This style is a very fresh & playful look, perfect for the new year, the warm sun & summer breeze!
