One of the biggest trends this fall is hemlines with a little personality, and the proof is in the pants (and jeans, skirts, sweaters, and more). Anything with a prominent or striking hemline was fast-tracked to becoming a highly covetable piece thanks to the street-style stars flaunting them between shows during Fashion Month – think perfectly imperfect hems on light-washed denim, playful fringe detailing on midi skirts, and the iconic slip dress made sensual with a finishing of lace.

It may just be a small element of tailoring, but it’s significant enough to elevate an entire look. And because hemlines are now taking center stage, Savoir Flair shows you three of the most interesting styles within this fast-growing trend, with a couple of retail picks to get you on board.

1

Asymmetrical

With a particularly cool and futuristic appeal, the asymmetrical hemline adds a whole lot of understated edge to jeans, knits, and even the simplest of shirts.

Fringed

Fringed styles are not newcomers to the fashion scene and have been a hot topic for a while now. Take your 70s-inspired pieces on a year-long stroll as we anticipate this hemline trend to only get bigger.

Lace-Trimmed

An extension of the lingerie trend, the romantic and playful lace trims spotted on both casual and dressy pieces add an unexpectedly flirty style element.
