The High-low skirt

A high low skirt is one that is cut shorter in the front and flows longer in the back. The style originated during the Victorian era, when dresses and gowns were often created with this style of hem, which was known as the “fishtail.” High low skirts were popular in the mid- to late 1800s, and reappeared in late 2011, soon becoming a worldwide fashion trend.
The playful look of a high low skirt has inspired clever nicknames among fashion designers and writers. Some call it a “waterfall” skirt because of the cascades of fabric that appear in some designs; others refer to the style as “asymmetrical” because of the uneven hem. Tabloid newspapers around the world dub it the “mullet skirt,” a derisive allusion to the popular 1980s mullet hairstyle that is short in front and long in back. Although mullet haircuts are now considered passé, some fashionistas have embraced the term for the skirt as a whimsical fashion reference.
