In any recent conversation about global fashion trends making the rounds currently, the topic of asymmetrical hemlines is bound to crop up. Widely versatile, easy to carry and flattering for body types that are trickier to style, asymmetrical silhouettes are a contemporary blessing to the world of fashion, and by the looks of it, here to stay awhile.

In India, asymmetrical ethnic apparels have been all the rage lately. Spotted everywhere from celebrities to movies and the runway, the imperfect beauty of asymmetry has proven to be an effective fashion choice for the curvier Indian body type. Moving beyond kurtis, the trend of asymmetrical hemlines has also morphed into asymmetrical dresses, skirts and jackets, and we are so on board!



The most relied upon choice for styling an asymmetrical hemline, especially for a top piece, is to go with a skinny pair of leggings or pants. But the truth is, the versatility of asymmetrical hemlines can be best seen in the wide range of styling possibilities they come with. Long story short, when you're styling an asymmetrical hemline, the world is your oyster! To help you with the cause, here's a round-up of 4 effective tips for styling asymmetrical hemlines. 


1. Experiment With Silhouettes

When it comes to asymmetrical hemlines, there's no specific type that caters to each woman. What works for you, might not for the woman next to you. The best way to figure this out is to experiment with silhouettes that are not the obvious choice. Try pairing an asymmetrical kurti with flared culottes, a top with breezy linen palazzos, or go bare on the bottoms by donning an asymmetrical kurti as a dress.

2. Let The Asymmetry Take Centre-Stage 

Asymmetrical hemlines are, in themselves, bold fashion statements. When you decide to sport one, the idea is to put together an outfit that lets the asymmetrical hem grab the attention, first. If you're wearing an asymmetrical dress, stick to a solid-coloured shrug or a chic denim jacket to top the look. If your asymmetrical top has bold prints, go with lower options that are more laid-back and plain.

3. Don't Be Afraid To Play With Accessories 

When you're styling an asymmetrical hemline, try to use your accessories judiciously, wisely and fashionably! Think, neon tassel earrings, statement neckpieces and wide leather belts. However, if you're going with a bold accessory, pick only one and avoid going over-board as that can take away the attention from the inherent style quotient in your asymmetrical hemline.

4. The Right Shoes Can Do Wonders 

If you're opting for an outfit with an asymmetrical hemline, don't take away the flair by donning a boring pair of flats. Instead, pick shoes that complement the drama in your look. A pair of classic peep-toe pumps for a formal, tailored look or some ankle-length boots for an effortlessly chic vibe, whatever you pick, the right shoes can either make or break your asymmetrical look.
