Have you bought any of the short in front, longer in the the back skirts or tops? I was never a fan of uneven hems because they seemed too trendy or just weird and funny looking. I own an Oilily dress that I wasn't wearing much until I got the hem tailored to make it all one length (and then it instantly became one of my favorites), I also have an old, high-low style skirt, that never wore because it is shorter in front and longer in the back. So when those uneven hems started popping out everywhere last year, I thought I will definitely sit this one out.
However, without really planning it I have recently bought not one but two of those tops. One is the t-shirt that I got at Anthro (see it here) that is currently my favorite t-shirt to wear with jeans. The other is a cashmere sweater from 360 Sweater.
I never heard of the brand before until Jody from About Last Weekend mentioned it in her comment on my blog. If you are not yet reading Jody's blog make sure to check it out. Her style is California laid back fabulous, her house is an eye candy, I want to visit all the places she travels to but she is refreshingly candid and one of the most hilarious blogers I read regularly.

I ordered a sweater in Medium, since they listed it as TTS in designer sizes and I think the fit is correct. It is supposed to be a loose fitting sweater. It is big all over but I think it works. The sleeves are long and not too tight.
The color is beautiful and exactly what I was looking for. The drape is great. The cashmere quality I think is comparable to J.Crew, as far as softness and possible pilling. Cashmere sweaters all feel a little scratchy when you try them while it is 90F outside. Only time will tell about the pilling. The price I paid was comparable to J.Crew sale price.
Surprisingly, I really like the high low design. I actually have problems with some of my cardigans being too long in front, especially wearing them with skirts and dresses. And I like the longer back, I think it adds visual interest.
Overall, I decided to keep the sweater, I love the design, slouchy shape and I think the color it will be great with jeans, blacks, browns and camels.
That's all folks!
Have you heard of 360 Sweater?
What do you thing of the uneven hems? Is this something you'd wear or deem too trendy?
