Asymmetry Does It Every Time
I don't actually believe there are shortcuts to good style. Real style is about knowing ourselves and understanding how to use clothes to tell that story. While I know this to be true, I also know that certain clothes are most helpful when it comes to getting the fashion right, even if we're still figuring out the style. And as far as I can see, nothing works better at creating the illusion of style than a little asymmetry.
As a tool in our sartorial arsenal, asymmetry can be deployed in varied ways. A top, for example, can be gathered at the hip, or accented with a dramatic train in the back. Ditto goes for pants. Here are a few notable examples.
I'll brb. I have to go cut off the fronts and sides of all my clothes. I'll report back.
