Sometimes all you need to liven up your wardrobe is a fresh, new angle. Asymmetrical tops and tunics give you just that! Take a look at these slightly off-kilter favorites that pair so perfectly with leggings.
I’m a fan of Asymmetric tops worn with leggings for many reasons:
1. Asymmetrical Tunic Tops Give Off an Artsy Vibe
Even the most conservative of us have days when we want to look a little more creative. An asymmetrical tunic top tunic worn over leggings is a subtle way to express the artsy side of your personality.
The recipe is simple: Take a solid colored or patterned tunic, add black leggings and a great pair of riding boots. Finish with a bag that makes the outfit pop, and you will look like one chic mama.
2. Asymmetric Tops are Easy to Style
This black embroidered top angles down in the middle to create a handkerchief hemline. You’ll also find tops with hemlines that cut straight across the front and then dip down much longer in the back, or that slant downwards on one side only.
Wear this outfit as is for a slightly artsy look, or crank up the creativity by adding funky jewelry or some layering pieces. To see how to make an asymmetric top and leggings outfit look artsier, check out this post.

3. Asymmetric Tops are Youthful
When you look a little edgy, you look modern, and that translates into youthful. Notice, I’m not saying young- none of us wants to look like a teenager, but youthful (vibrant) is good. An asymmetrical top with leggings ( especially leather leggings like these below) makes you look updated and more hip than if you wore a pair of blue jeans and a button-up shirt.
4. Asymmetrical Tops Worn with Leggings Are Slimming
Bonus! Asymmetrical tops with their uneven hemlines draw the eye upward creating a long, lean line that makes you look tall and slender. Plus, these tops flow, which means they camouflage any belly bulge beautifully. Just be sure your top is not too baggy. The loose over long silhouette is flattering, so long as your asymmetrical top is not too voluminous. You want your top to resemble more of a dainty, floaty tunic than a bulky, heavy blanket.
For gals who love to wear color, a color blocked asymmetric tunic, also helps sculpt your figure. (Visit my post on color blocked dresses to learn how this works.
5. Asymmetric Tunic Tops are Super Comfy and Easy to Wear
I’m a stickler for comfort, but I also want to look chic. An asymmetrical top with leggings is an outfit I can wear sitting at my computer, out to dinner, shopping- you name it. It feels good. An outfit like this is soft and relaxed and makes me want to curl up. It’s casual, classy and easy.
You can even wear an asymmetrical top with a jacket if you want even more of an edgier vibe. Just keep the jacke within the same tonal range as the top so you don’t come off looking like a colorful chopped up puzzle.
