Asymmetry means without symmetry — with no mirror imagery. Asymmetry proves that it is possible to achieve balance without symmetry.
This trend is seen in various forms like the asymmetrical neck line – one sided or off shoulder tops, and the asymmetrical hem-line – in the form of hi-low tops/dresses/skirts. This type of asymmetry is seen in color blocking approaches, modern patchwork techniques and multiple textile design construction.
A few things to keep in mind while purchasing asymmetrical clothing:
- It should be in solid colors with minimal pattern (avoid loud graphic patterns).
- It should be styled with utter simplicity and not heavily accessorized.
- When you opt for asymmetrical cuts make sure you don’t over do it; if you are working with an asymmetrical neck line don’t go for a hi-low skirt or an asymmetrical hem line as well.
- Usually this is a very fun style and it should be worn in flow-y light fabrics, a tight fitting asymmetrical top/dress is a major no-no.
Moving onto my outfit, I paired my asymetrical top with black leggings and a belt to give some shape to my frame. I wanted the look to be clean so I wore a pair of silver beaded flats and a black ring necklace to bring the look together. I braided my hair and wore pink earrings to add a little bit of feminine touch to the over all look.
