Hi-Low Mother of the Bride Dresses

High-Low dresses for the Mother-of-the-Bride are in for 2017-2018 weddings! The high-low hemline is nothing new, with this cutaway front style being first seen in Victorian times, and coming back into fashion during certain decades of the 20th century. Most of the 2017 versions of the high-low hemlines we’ve been seeing offer a balanced look that offers just a little peek of the ankle and calf, but still keeps the gown at a formal length. These modern classic silhouettes make for a great choice for fashion-forward mothers seeking a gown for their daughter or son’s wedding, especially when done in a beautiful flowing chiffon fabric or in a silk or taffeta ball gown.

Lately we’ve seen so many high-low styles we love, we’ve decided to dedicate a few points to this look, starting off with these choices for mother-of-the-bride dresses. The emerald green style above would be ideal for a fall wedding, but we’ve seen hi-low hems in dresses for all seasons. Here are a few more favorite looks!
