Acing the asymmetrical hemline: Find your style

One of the most versatile trends this season has been the asymmetrical hemline.  It’s popped up on everything from shirts to skirts to dresses and can either be dramatic or subtle.  With all these options, you’ll def find the perf hemline for your style—whether your style veers toward edgy, girly, tomboy or classic.
 
Edgy cool
If you’re looking for subtlety, try out a maxi skirt.  Skirts like this are great if you just want to dip your toes into this trend.  The length of the skirt means you won’t be risking a super short hem in the front and maxi skirts are so simple to style! A bold colored skirt calls for a patterned tank, some simple accessories and a cheeky bag for fun twist to an easy outfit.

Girly girl
You may be scared to try shirts with a cropped front, but they are a total cinch to rock! The hemline will draw attention without buckles and snaps adding to the drama, so ditch the jeans or cutoffs for a simple, bright bodycon skirt.  Try a pair of cute sneakers to keep you looking casual and have fun with your jewelry: zebra earrings touch on the animal theme of the shirt, but aren’t the main attraction.

Tomboy casual
Tops with higher hemlines draw attention to your choice of bottom, so choose wisely.  Take advantage of the frame by rocking some daring shorts, like these ombre denim ones, instead of a boring classic pair.  All that leg you’re showing needs a killer base, so go with a twist on a classic, like this studded smoking slipper.  An adorable animal necklace tops off this spunky outfit.

Classic cute
Looking for a one-step way to wear this trend?  Dresses are the thing for you!  Pick a fresh color, throw on a denim jacket and mini wedges and you have the perfect end-of-summer outfit.  A silly mustache necklace adds a bit of fun if you’re planning a night with the girls, but any jewelry amps up this on-the-go outfit.
