Do you know what a handkerchief dress or skirt is? It's dress or skirt that has an asymmetrical hem with several corners. Imagine a square handkerchief, pick it up in the center and that's what this hem looks like. Up until last year, I had associated this hemline with ballroom dancers and figure skaters. And why not? the corners or points of the dress help to create a lot of movement. If you're someone who likes to twirl in dresses, this hemline is definitely for you!
