I finally figured out exactly why high-low hemlines appeal to me so strongly. It's the graceful movement of the fabric created when the wind flows through, as well as the drama and unexpected shape of a hemline that's both demure and flirtatious at the same time.  Sans tights, they allow me to simultaneously show and hide some skin. Furthermore, such hemlines lend themselves well to slightly breezy days, especially if opaque tights and a carefree attitude are involved.
