While there’s nothing new about layering, there is a new way to pile on your clothes this fall. Layered hemlines are all over the runways right now and it’s a trend that we’re pretty excited about. Donning several layers in fall is logical, but adding multiple hemlines to your look is just plain fashionable.

There are several ways to do this. If you haven’t already, you will notice skirts and dresses with two visible layers available in stores. Or, you could create do-it-yourself versions by wearing a short dress with a longer slip underneath (as shown below) or layer two skirts of different lengths. It may sound funky, but it’s an easy and practical way to achieve this ultra-trendy look!

Here’s one way to rock this trend for fall…

    This is a cute idea! I could see myself trying the example you provided. I think the slip adds a touch of sensuality to the casual dress.

    If I layered my dress over a long slip it would just look like I can’t dress myself

    I’m not a huge fan of the look. To me it just looks a little odd. And I was always taught that a slip should NEVER be visible under a dress.

    I don’t think I’d do this with a slip, especially not paired with such a casual dress as in the example, but I can see it working with the right combo of skirts/dresses.
    I’ve done it as color-blocking (one bold dress with a black skirt underneath, or vice versa) and it looked great!
