How To: An Asymmetrical Hem
I've realized that without even noticing it, most of the skirts or dresses that I've bought lately all inexplicably have uneven hemlines. Most often shorter in the front and longer in the back, adding a sweep of elegance with every step and a bit of leg with every foot forward. I'm still a proponent, but I also like the look of a drape that is angular on the side. They look great with a cropped jacket and on a longer hem (think near maxi length). It's the perfect transitional piece for Summer into Fall and layers well with booties for a day to night look.
