Fashion Review: The Asymmetrical Skirt

Asymmetricallity. It's all over the place. Almost any one who's been in-tune with the fashion scene would know that the trend has officially taken the fashion world by storm. If you don't, well... May the ghost of Coco Chanel haunt you for all your days.

Of course, there have been a variety of asymmetrical clothes. But the one I'm gonna talk about today, is the asymmetrical skirt.

While some may deem it weird, I actually find it beautiful. Sure, it's unusual. But it's interesting. It makes your ensemble interesting. And lord knows how much we need this on the fashion scene. A girl who rocks the asymmetrical skirt right, will have tons of admiring glances where ever she goes. 

I mean, look at it. There's just something about that piece of flowy, floaty, dream-like skirt that makes the entire outfit look altogether lovelier. The way it flows along with your body as you move, makes you almost queen-like.
See what I mean?

However, this is a downside to this beauty. Because it's so unusual, it's a bit difficult to find the right type. You see, not all of us are born with perfect bodies. So the same skirt can look different on different girls. The asymmetrical skirt pretty much draws attention to the legs. So if you're leggy, great. You can pretty much carry off any asymmetrical skirt.
If you're a bit skinny, get a skirt with ruffles. It'll give you a fuller look. But if you're a little on the chubby side, try to avoid asymmetrical skirts with long hems. Get the ones with shorter hems, preferably up to the knee. And if you're petite, don't even consider wearing the skirt with flats. Go with the highest heels you have. Stumpy is not and never will be the new sexy. Period. Neither is dumpy. 

The only exception to this rule, is if you have the body of a supermodel, or the asymmetrical skirt you have is short-hemmed. But then again, the asymmetrical skirt is typically worn with heels. Go with simple heels, by the way. No neon coloured or out of this world shoes, sister. You do not want to draw attention away from the skirt. You can, however, pair the skirt with boots, which looks super cool. Note: Only do this if you possess va-va-voom legs, or slim legs at least. You'll want admiring glances, not gawking haters.
Now, despite how difficult the skirt can be, you'd be surprised at how versatile it is. It depends on what look you're going for, really. A simple tank top, heels, a nice belt, and good bag is perfect for a casual day out. Pairing a bustier top, a sash, heels and a clutch with the skirt spells romantic dinner date. It's easy to go from day to night with this skirt.
Or, you could turn it into beachwear. 

The verdict:
Hot. But with many, many, MANY conditions. It's a beautiful piece to add to your closet, but for the love of Anna Wintour, choose wisely. 

Till next time. Au revoir, beautiful ones. XOXO
