With superb versatility and totally contemporary pizzaz, the asymmetrical skirt is one of the hottest fashion trends for summer 2014. This innovative concept has produced the tiny mini-skirt for wearing on a night out, the mid-length version which is perfect for workwear, and longer designs that can be worn to a more formal occasion.
The popular mini-skirt has made a great comeback this season, and a little asymmetrical skirt will certainly turn heads. Drawing inspiration from the tennis skirt, you can choose from a fantastic variety of overall designs. Opt for pure simplicity with a pencil skirt version featuring offset front panels, fashioned from a textured jersey-knit fabric for interest, and worn with a sheer long-sleeved tunic with shirt cuff detail and strappy wedge sandals. For a truly modern take, choose a dual-colour design with innovative turned waistband and a matching tailored jacket that reflects the two-tone colour theme. A striking monochrome skirt featuring black panelling with wide contrasting edge bands can be worn anywhere, whilst the black leather asymmetrical mini-skirt is an evergreen classic given a new edge.
Mid-length designs are also a popular choice this summer. For a delightfully feminine touch, try a scooped hem design. A mini-pleated version worn with strappy sandals and sparkly top is fabulous for a summer party, whilst a pencil outline matched with tailored blouse and flat court shoes lets you arrive at the office in style. Gentle pleats teamed with a light sloppy-joe tunic and soft boots gives casual appeal, whilst a figure-hugging wrap-around skirt made from stretch jersey can sweep from mid-thigh to mid-calf with panache.
The longer length is a wonderful option for evening wear, and you have a wondrous range of designs for ringing the changes. With frilled rustic attraction, a handkerchief hemline design in a pretty floral print will swirl gorgeously at mid-calf as you move, creating a delightfully feminine look. Wear with gathered rustic blouse and wide leather belt to emphasise your waistline. A floaty chiffon version looks stunning when teamed with a close-fitting stretch tee and high heels. But for breathtaking impact, a starched satin full-skirted design with echoes of the glamorous Fifties will draw every eye at a formal event, especially matched with a couture blouse and stiletto platform shoes.
With such an unbelievable choice of lengths and designs, the asymmetrical skirt leaves you plenty of ways to make this fashion trend completely your own.
