I saw the most beautiful ecru lace Victorian looking blouse on some show (not a shopping channel).  It really caught my eye, then they pulled out to a full length shot.  She had paired this creation with the most shredded pair of jeans I've ever seen.  What a disappointment.  Since the blouse was obviously very expensive, I'm betting the jeans were, too.  Just stop it, people.  I'm ducking now.

Soften the edgy-look of distressed/ripped jeans by wearing them with an elegant top. That's a style thing these days.

I  can understand your feelings.

 

In the same idea, I am over some of the "high-low" mixes.  Some are plain unappealing to me to the max degree!

 

If anyone likes all of the high low mixing, enjoy.

My guess is, that person is very young and you.... aren't.

@ECBG    I have to agree... I am so tired of the high low thing.  Maybe it is because I am on the petite side...Those styles look like maternity clothes on me.  🤦🏻‍♀️.  I tried it once, and knew I just could not carry it off.  I'll stick to the classics.

Sometimes I appreciate a contrast in looks, I would have to see this one to decide. I'm not young.

Re: What a way to ruin a look.

You are right, I'm not.  (young).  I also am over the high-low, some pieces in my closet I bought because I loved the item in spite of the high-low.  There was the cutest denim jacket on Sat. Fashion Day, princess seamed for a streamlined fit.   Just under  100.00, it was some in brand I've never heard of.  But, I saved the $100.00 because it had the dreaded high-low look.  To be honest, I thought it was passe, just like cold shoulders.

Mine comes from the look of those black and white high (or low) top sneakers.  I hated them when I saw them as a child.  "Trainers" or tennis shoes as European stylists refer to them are like nails on a chalk board when I see them with a nice outfit.

 

There are many comfortable casual shoe lines like Earth.
