Say Hello to High-Low Dresses & 5 Reasons to Date a Guy With a Mullet

It’s a party dress in the front and a formal length gown in the back. I’m talking about the high-low trend (aka the mullet dress). Did the high-low dress may stem from all the men fed up with the super comfy, yet somewhat shapeless oversized maxi skirts? Where ever this trend originated, I recently found one at Forever 21 and while I wasn’t gaga over the print, it’s a spring style I highly recommend.

I also wanted to share a few of my NEW favorite Spring makeup and hair products along with a recent “Hollywood Dating” scenerio that truly translates to real life relationships…

I’m seeing more & more Coachella chatter on Facebook these days…Are you going?

‘Mullet’ Mania

Of course, the mullet is an outdated hairstyle that is more of a Kenny Powers (jokes on him) kind of look these days. But hypothetically speaking, it seems like there are two types of men in this world personality wise. Although I know this is oversimplified, there is the kind of guy who would walk out of the house rocking a mullet and a guy who would never be caught in such a silly look risking the possibility of getting laughed at in public. 
  

Hollywood: ~ There were photos snapped of Michelle Williams on a date with Jason Segel earlier this week. While people may seem a little surprised by the pairing, it got me thinking about whether most women would want to date a ‘Don Draper’ character for the long term or a Jason Segel Forgetting Sarah Marshall” (serious, but yet a goofball) type? Which leads me to:

5 Reasons to Date a Guy with a ‘Mullet’ Personality
1. You don’t have to be a “comedian.” But if you can laugh at others, please be able laugh at yourself.
2. I asked around a bit and one female friend told me if she’s out and sees a group of guys paying attention to one guy in the group making them all laugh, she’ll take notice of him.
3. Real Housewives of Orange County Case Study ~ If you watch this show, do you notice how Slade (currently dating Gretchen) is a bit of a slimeball, yet perpetually dates housewife after housewife and has them eating out of his hand? He’s fine with the women making fun of him, doesn’t take himself too seriously, and recently wore a mullet to their 80′s party and had them all cracking up laughing (except for Vicki).
4. Post Grad Comedy School? I have a friend who actually wanted to increase his comedic qualities, so he took comedy courses (although he didn’t need it as he’s quite charming & funny in his own way)
5. There are all kinds of temperaments and men shouldn’t try to be someone they’re not. But just remember, in the long term, a fun-loving personality goes a lot farther than a six-pack for most women. Unless you’re Kim Kardashian icon wink

Stylist to the Stars & E!’s Fashion Police judge George Kotsiopoulos considers leopard print a neutral, (not sure I agree) but I threw it in mixing up patterns & colors.

Did you watch the season premiere of MadMen? Don’s new wife throws him a surprise birthday bash and serenades him singing in front of all his friends. Not only is he unamused, he’s completely embarrassed by her and visibly uncomfortable when the guys in the office made fun of him. I totally get the appeal of Jon Hamm’s character, but would you really want to be married to him?

Do you like the high-low dress trend this Spring and are you more of a Don Draper, Jason Segel, or a combo? icon smile

Have a great weekend,

    you look beautiful, love this post and lovely dress

  2. That's My Mama says:

    LOL @mullet dress! Thats totally what they look like. You look great in it. Its funny but most dresses end up looking like this anyway when you have big boobs lol. They always pull up the hem in the front of the dress :)

  3. Vanisha @ Vanishas Life In...Australia says:

    I’m not sure about this trend on me personally but it looks great on you (and others) maybe I’ll just have to give it a go! Have a great weekend Dale <3

  4. Ashley says:

    HAHAAAA I laughed out loud at “mullet!” So funny for some reason! I really like that dress, it looks really cute. Perfect blend of being short and long. I love maxi dresses, but they can be a little boring sometimes. I love the palm trees and sun, where were the pictures taken? You look gorgeous!

    xo,

    Haha mullets are soo funny! I love that outfit though!

  6. Brandon Lostinidaho says:

    I think I’m a Jason Segel mixed with Jonah Hill. And women seem to love it! I’m happily taken, but sometimes have a hard time turning off the charm…

  7. Veronica says:

    YOu are soo gorgeous as always! I really love the print of that dress. Awesome find!

    P.S: “mullet” dress made me laugh!! hehe =D

    Beautiful jacket you are always beautiful. The ring type “CAMAFEO” IS ADORABLE!

  10. Aquí says:

    I love this dress! So beautiful! I have yet to bare my legs without tights. It’s been raining so much! I’m having a hard time coming to terms with the fact that sf is chilly during the spring and summer months.

  11. Gail and Rhoda says:

    I love the high low trend! This is super cute on you! -Rhoda

  12. Chic 'n Cheap Living says:

    The high low dress trend is something I’d rock! Oh and your list is too funny but true. If a guy can chill out and have fun, it does make him more attractive!

  23. winetastegirl.com says:

    Love this post! I saw the Housewives and Mad Men episodes you are talking about. I was so embarrassed for that girl singing that song for Don. Although, I did have it stuck in my head the rest of the night! Love the dress you are wearing here. I’ll have to go get it this weekend since I have a jacket very similar to the one you are wearing it it looks fabulous!

    • Dale Janeé says:

      Thanks so much and yea I’m sure that dress is still there. I just got it last week and I had to laugh because I had that song stuck in my head too when she was singing it. lol

  24. Mad For Fashion...For Less says:

    You look super cute and I love your dress!

  25. Aimee L says:

    I don’t like the high-low dress/skirt trend! But then again I didn’t like the maxi dress trend either, until now…and now I’m dying to get one.

    Kinda bitter I didn’t catch the season premiere of Mad Men but I can always catch it On Demand. From your description, Draper sounds like an ass…been there/done that with men, and not a fan of that type.

    • Dale Janeé says:

      Yea I totally agree and I think you’ll love the Maxi dress if you get one. Maybe by summer you’ll try a high low skirt too hehe

      You’ll definitely have to see MadMen on Demand

  26. Carrie says:

    I’m not too sure about the mullet dress for myself, but it looks adorable on you! Maybe the next time I’m in f21, I’ll grab one and give it a try!
    Thanks for all the nice comments on my blog! :)

    ps – I took my new purse out yesterday and received a TON of compliments :)

    • Dale Janeé says:

      I think it would look great on your Carrie and I’m so happy you love the purse. Definitely do an outfit post this Spring with it. hehe

  27. Marion says:

    Just getting caught up on reading my favorite blogs (of course you are one of them!) I LOVE the high/low dress trend. This F21 is gorgeous…so I’ll def be looking for it next time I’m there!
    And I didn’t know you played tennis?! That is awesome. If we are ever at the same bloggers conference, we’ll have to hit some balls!

    Enjoy your weekend!
    Marion

    • Dale Janeé says:

      Thanks Marion! And yes, we definitely have to hit sometime and if I ever visit family in Denver this year, I will for sure let you know

  30. The Fashionable ESQ says:

    I saw this floral high-low dress when I was browsing through dresses to make my latest post. I liked it but didn’t post it b/c it was too similar to a Delia’s one I had up.
    I <3 your hair color.

  40. hautegamer says:

    That dress is hot! Can it be a combo? Don Draper’s style and Segel’s humor? Haha

  41. Rejina Tyson says:

    I love your floral print high-low hem dress! Your jacket perfectly matches it too. You look amazing!

  43. Vonae Deyshawn says:

    I love this look. I’m not sure if I’m all that into the high-low dress thing though. I’ve been trying to decide on it. : ) I do like this one because it’s fun in the front and maxi in the back. I’m not too fond of the one’s that are fun in the front and then mid-calf in the back. They just seem confused. lol. I love the mineral highlighter. It’s so pretty! You have a great summer glow going on.

  45. Rachel says:

    Your hair looks gorgeous here. But I will never understand the mullet dress. haha.

  46. Mary Ann says:

    I really like the high low hem, it’s fresh right now. But when it does eventually go out of style, you can always cut off the back and have a short even-hemmed dress. I love when trends have versatility! Thank you for stopping by my blog and saying hello!! ;-)

  47. Cari Cantrell says:

    Love your blog! and lovin’ that “mullet” dress!

    Your dress is awesome! dating a guy with a mullet, not so awesome… My husband loves kenny powers however he would probably never wear a mullet, well maybe for an 80′s party like Slade did! :)

    I’m kinda loving the mullet dress trend, I just haven’t found a dress I like enough to buy.

    I’d totally rather have a funny guy than someone with no humor in his life!

  61. Diva In Me says:

    Definitely the high-low dress. I think they’re cool. I had 2 pieces for myself last year but I kept it for the longest time and I didn’t even wear it. So I sold it already. You look really great in the high-low dress!

  62. Jayme and Mendi says:

    Love the high-low trend going on now! And you favorite makeup picks right now are so pretty. We love a great highlighter and lip gloss!!

    It’s funny I read this post right when I was scouring the internet for a high-low skirt (I’ve also heard them called tail skirts…same thing?).
    I’m loving the trend and can’t wait to buy one!
