If you’re looking to update your date night wardrobe, there’s only one piece you need this season to get your guy’s head turning – the asymmetrical hem skirt. The modern mini, and even some midi, has gotten a sexy update it’s a look you don’t want to pass up.
This style skirt comes in a multitude of lengths and styles so there’s one out there for everyone. If you’ve been looking for a way to amp up your skirt collection then take a look at these amazing options of one of the season’s hottest trends.
Free People Ruched Asymmetrical Skirt, $69.99 (on sale). If you’re looking for a version with a little more length, this is the one. You still get the effect of the asymmetrical hem but you also get a little more coverage that most styles won’t give you. This one is perfect for pairing with an oversized sweater and some ankle booties for a great winter boho-chic look.
Codeya Applique Contrast Asymmetric Skirt, $35.20. This version is perfect for packing some subtle, yet serious punch. The leather and mesh detailing on the front will add some sexy edge to your look without overpowering it. Pair with a t-shirt with leather sleeves to play off the details in the skirt or try a classic silk blouse and layered necklaces for a softer take.
ASOS Pencil Skirt In Mono Abstract, $81.67. This is a fantastic sophisticated take on the asymmetrical hem skirt. Definitely an option that can take you from day to night when you’re meeting the girls or your guy for an after work drink. Paired with a pretty blouse for work, this look will take you to happy hour by just changing up your jewelry and adding a bold lip. Also great for weekend nights out when paired with a great ankle bootie, fitted tee and topped with a moto jacket.
Milly Full Pleated Tweed Skirt, $159. This skirt isn’t for everyone, but if you’re really looking for something different then this is an amazing option. The interesting pleats create the asymmetrical hemline and also give the skirt some extra shape. This skirt will get along well with just about any style top and I would top it all off with a long, oversized coat. This skirt is great for a girl with some imagination so have fun styling this one.
Cameo Some Nights Skirt, $116. This is by far my favorite asymmetrical hem skirt. I love the how it’s longer in the front and gets shorter in the back. It’s such a different play on the trend and oe that looks incredibly chic. You can pair this a million different ways – with a cropped sweater, a classic button-up, a slouchy boyfriend t-shirt and a cropped blazer – the options are endless.
Forever21 Cutting Edge Asymmetrical Skirt, $19.80. Definitely one of the edgiest versions out there. This skirt has some awesome biker inspiration with the leather and zippers and is definitely a great going out go-to. This skirt can be dressed up or down depending on how you want to play with the details. Try a graphic tee and a bomber jacket paired some motorcycle boots for an edgier take or try a pretty fisherman style sweater for a toned down look.
Club Monaco Lula Asymmetrical Wrap Skirt, $149.50. Here is the toned down version of the biker style above. This pretty white piece is given a hint of edge with the visible zipper, but the overall look of this skirt is sleek and clean. This is the skirt to get you through your holiday party schedule and can be styled to fit every occasion. To get festive try pairing this with a pretty metallic top and some sexy pointed toe pumps.
Nasty Gal Razor Sharp Shirt, $48. I love this two-toned version – the nude against the black is incredibly chic and the cut is also slimming. Perfect with a black turtleneck sweater and some mid-calf booties for a perfect night out look.
findersKEEPERS Oblivion Skirt, $135. This quilted skirt is a great way to add some texture to your look. Pair this one with a pretty printed top or a light long sleeved sweater layered under a real/faux fur vest. Finish off with some ankle or knee-high booties and you’re ready for anything.
Talula Berklee Short, $45 (on sale). Maybe you’re not a skirt girl, but that doesn’t mean you can’t rock the asymmetrical hem skirt trend. This skort gives you the illusion of the skirt but the comfort of a skort, but it’s still just as sexy. Pair this with some sheer black tights, lace up oxford shoes, and top with a sweatshirt (you can even layer this over a button up for some extra prep).
Take a fun fashion risk this season and indulge in a little trendiness by giving this look a try!
