Runway To Real Way: Uneven Territory

 

It would be impossible to ignore the bevy of asymmetric looks spotted on the Spring 2012 runways.  The good news is this is a style that can be flattering for many body types, especially given the variety of sub-styles.  It’s also a great trend to dress up or down.   Rather than wear a dress, consider a skirt with an asymmetric hemline.  It allows for more options when creating your look! 

Try this striking orange skirt from Finders Keepers (also available in white) with a simple asymmetric tank.  Half tuck the tank to define your waist while keeping true to the nature of the look.  A black leather jacket adds some edge and also provides structure for an otherwise flowing, whimsical outfit.  As an alternate option, you could pair the skirt with a ladylike blouse if you’d prefer to go ultra femme.  Espadrilles are a great choice for spring and this ankle-wrap style from Seychelles lightens up the look.   Throw on some chic gold toned jewelry and finish off with a cute clutch like this versatile nude version from Rebecca Minkoff.    You’ll be sure to project the perfect balance of classic and on trend.
