When you want to look modern and a little bit edgy, think about wearing an asymmetrical dress. Asymmetrical dresses with diagonally sliced hemlines are one of the new “it” styles for spring.
Up until now, most of the asymmetrical dresses we’ve seen have had high-low hemlines, which in all honesty haven’t fared so well with the 40 plus crowd. Many of you told me that you found high-low dresses too short in the front and that they reminded you of a bad 80’s mullet haircut!
Take a look at these new asymmetrical shapes and you will see they’re quite different. Here are a few asymmetrical dresses that will make you think again.
Beautiful in Blue!
Wow, this Estella Asymmetrical dress is a showstopper. It combines color blocking with the modern vibe of an asymmetrical hemline. And what a gorgeous shade of blue!
Great for a special party or event where you want to get noticed!
Black and white always looks chic, but this asymmetric dress is extra special with its high drama striped color blocking.
This would make a great top to wear over leggings as it is on the short side for some.
Feminine is the feeling that comes with this pretty prism dress with asymmetrical chiffon overlay. This dress has a rich vibe and would be lovely a for a special night out.
Style Tip: Elongate your legs in an asymmetrical dress by wearing low contrast shoes that match your skin tone.
If you’re a gal who likes to be noticed, then this show-stopping dress is for you. I love the bold lines and bright colors on this striped Ottoman sheath that is really quite a conservative dress that has a daring touch of asymmetrical drama.
This is a knit dress so it will really show off your curves. My favorite!
Go with the Flow
Not everyone likes a crisp, sharp dress. Many women look better in a softer style and gentler color. If that’s you, then this dusty rose, jersey bateau dress by Eileen Fisher is for you.
This is a low-risk dress to try for women on the conservative side. The color, style, and hemline are more subtle – a very wearable option.
|Feminine Handkerchief Hemline |
Here’s another dress that is definitely a head turner. A chiffon halter maxi dress gets a modern boost with the addition of an asymmetrical handkerchief hemline.
Feminine and little flirty, this dress would look fabulous for a summer cocktail party with a fab necklace or glam bangle bracelets.
Slinky, Slimming Black
Did I mention the asymmetrical hemline is a great dress to wear if you are on the curvy side? A little black asymmetrical dress like this puts your legs on display which means no one is looking at your tummy or hips.
Plus, black is always slimming. I love the simplicity and luxury of this fab dress.
