Spring 2015 Trend of Asymmetrical Hems Skirts: How to Wear
The asymmetrical skirt hems are back on the runway and they look sexier than ever in the spring/ summer 2015 fashion season. We’ve already seen the high slits – they’ve been spotted in all the top brand stores already. Now, we’re looking at the skirt with longer sides and more legs shown, albeit in a classier manner for the most part. Some pieces seem to hit the top of the thighs though and that is a bit on the racier side. The fashion industry serves to appeal to the masses though and if there’s a market for a specific style, it will be walked down that runway.
Spring 2015 skirts reimagine the sex-appeal and slice up those hems, sometimes diagonally, sometimes in more relaxed draping, often sassy or flirty, and at times even cascading down over the knees. The idea is to be sexy without trying too hard as the asymmetrical skirts are the next season’s biggest statements. From sturdy fabrics to diaphanous chiffons, the skirts are worn in all lengths, all style, both with bold prints and subtle designs. In order to keep your outfits chic and refined these are the best ways to wear your asymmetrical skirts and dress hems in 2015!
Easy and Breezy
During the day you want to keep things effortless, flowing against your silhouette with weightless fabrics and relaxed shapes sporting more pastel colors. If the hem start high on the hip, let it fall somewhere around the knee to keep things more appropriate and chic. To show your playful side, add some prints to the mix and pair the outfit with textured waves in natural boho style, ankle straps and perhaps button-downs. If you are wearing a dress with an asymmetrical hem, opt for the parachute silhouettes, wear your hair in a bun and go for flatter sandals.

Add an Edge
Leathers, black coloring and more tomboyish lines are great if you want to be wearing this signature piece from the runway with a really distinct edge. Diagonally sliced miniskirts look great with matching leather jackets while the tighter fit of the leathers are eased up a little with a looser sweater with slogans written all over. It’s an effortless balance and can be worn day or night. You can also go for a dress that you layer over with a slightly transparent but tailored blazer while boots add a bit more of a tough edge to the look overall.
There’s a new trend with sports-luxe tones all about it and the asymmetrical skirt is certainly getting into the mix as well. This way we have the sex appeal in the luxurious athletic quality of the style. What you should be doing here is choosing one of the two trends to dominate while the other becomes more of an accent. For example, you can have a sporty dress with an asymmetrical hem that looks pretty amazing when also mixed with the bare-faced trend and the ponytail. Add heels and you have a great combo. You can also layer the sporty sheer top over a bandeau and skirt combo, toning down the sexiness without compromising the appeal of the look.
Talk About Glamour
This is stepping into evening-wear territory and you can hardly go wrong at this point. Young and short needs the refreshment of the trending hem, with graphic accents and a hit of color, finished off with bolder makeup on the lips and an even bolder pair of pumps. Soft pastel hues also look pretty amazing and positively lady-like with minimal makeup and a simple hairstyle to finish it off while you can opt for either flats or heels.

The Little White Dress
Such a pretty look for the spring season, the little white dress looks positively dashing with the asymmetrical hem to add to the sensual essence of the perfect warmer-weather staple. During the day, it’s best to look effortlessly put-together with a shirtdress exposing shoulders, tightly belted and a simple heel to complete it while hair is let down in a center part. At night, however, shine like a goddess with a mix of bodycon and fit-to-flare designs. A single shoulder design gives it edge, while the hem adds to the sexy. Ankle-strap heels are a lovely way to finish off the look.
The hems in this cut are sexy unto themselves so when you try to bring out an edgier sexy look, you really get more than what you bargained for. The casual fall of uneven lines that highlight the legs and reveal just about enough skin to pique the interest of a potential partner often whisper pure sex appeal. These styles work best after the sun sets and you are ready to rock the town. Go for the glamorous look along with the sexy, keeping styling to a minimum and adding a pair of statement heels instead while the actual outfit has subtle cut-outs at the hemline, is of darker hues and sleeker silhouettes. The ultra-sexy look would include a super short hem with a chic button-down shirt that has been unbuttoned part of the way, and/or a lovely blazer that can either go extremely sexy with little left to the imagination or a bit toned down but enough to look positively risqué. In either case, these asymmetrical skirts are a whole load of sexy so you don’t need to try to be.
