Funky hems for the sheer love of fabric

When it comes to forecasting fashion trends, Mercedes Benz Fashion Week is the place to be. Among the bright pops of color expected in spring collections, we've also caught on to the high-low hems and racy slits that were sent down the runways.

3 fashion week trends for everyday style

While these runway trends from Mercedes Benz Fashion Week don't look like something you can wear for everyday style, you might be suprised to find other variations of these dress trends that will fit into daily lives quite nicely.

1The high-low hem:

This trend has already started to his the streets and red carpet events. Selena Gomez rocked it in black during the VMA preshow event and her BFF Demi Lovato wore a yellow Max Azria high-low hem to the Teen Choice Awards.You can opt for a more glamourous take on the dress style for nights out, but the trend can also be office friendly and sophisticated.

2The slit dress:

Maxi skirts and long dresses with slits are proving the maxi style to be a timeless fashion take for any season. We love the off-the-shoulder look above. You can also pair a long skirt with a simple tee and a scarf for a casual weekend look that will make the cut for work appropriate fashion attire when Monday rolls around. Try these long skirts for fall and keep them handy for spring.

3Sheer and Chiffon:

The sheer fabric that keeps catching our eye is making the fine line between casual and dressy a fun line to walk. Keep your eye on dresses in sheer fabric with a flowy essence. Long dresses with a sheer skirt are a fun way to show off those legs in a sophisticated way. More about how to wear the sheer trend right >
