Hemlines reach new heights

Weekend Glitz | Elaine Chung and Cara Chen 16 Apr 2021

Summer hasn't officially arrived yet, but cool miniskirts are already on the scene.

Miniskirts and dresses can be seen throughout new collections from fashion houses such as Dolce & Gabbana, Miu Miu, Versace and Isabel Marant, all in their distinctive house styles.

Miu Miu's spring/summer collection is a combination of sporty elements and retro style. An embroidered cady skirt stands out with its luminous all-over embroidery, an exquisite motif that blends modernity with retro touches.

Dolce & Gabbana takes "Patchwork di Sicilia" as its seasonal theme, combining collage details and Sicilian style to bring an eye-catching visual effect in Italian chic.

To make your lower body seem slender, pleated and ruffled skirts are go-to items as their width and texture help shift the visual focus upwards, while wearing a tight dress with heels also elongates the body in a sexy way.

But for office ladies, flats may be a better choice than pumps as they allow you ease of movement while commuting.

But that doesn't mean your footwear has to be plain as slips with various details such as color-blocking, rhinestones, studs and crystals are available at Dolce & Gabbana, Giuseppe Zanotti, Jimmy Choo and Roger Vivier.
