Playing with the cut of a garment has always been one way to spice up an outfit. Whether it is with this summer’s favorite trend, the high-low skirt, or with an asymmetrical dress, straying from traditional cuts creates an instant and modern edge. This Fashionista emphasized the asymmetrical cut of her sweater, giving her look an unexpected twist.
Just like last week’s Fashionista, this Fashionista used a little black dress as the starting point of her outfit. She covered her legs by adding sheer black tights and tall black boots. Rather than opt for a classic sweater to cover up on top, this Fashionista covered up with an asymmetrically cut sweater. As the back hung lower than the front, her sweater remained the focal point of her outfit. By extending past her lower back, her sweater created volume to balance out this Fashionista’s small frame.
To complete her outfit, this Fashionista accessorized with simple jewelry. On her wrists she wore a few bangles that added a subtle edge to her outfit and on her neck she wore a simple necklace with a few meaningful charms.
To achieve a look similar to this Fashionista’s, try wearing one statement asymmetrical piece as the focal point of your outfit. This bright blouse from Topshop would make a great statement if paired with dark jeans and nude heels. The cut in this ASOS black dress makes it an edgy alternative to the typical little black dress and looks great with a pair of black booties.
