The key characteristic of the asymmetrical dress is a slanted hemline or neckline, with the most common design featuring a one shoulder bodice. The degree to which the slant occurs in the skirt section of the dress can vary greatly ranging from a subtle slant in one direction to more severe slants which go both ways to create a peak in the centre.
This asymmetrical dress style first came to the forefront of fashion back in the 1970s when top American designer Roy Halston released a series of dresses featuring the style. Halston took the concept of elegant cocktail dresses and blended them with Grecian gowns to create this eye-catching design.
Any dress with an asymmetric hemline comes under this category. With a high-low hem, these dresses can be worn by anyone and everyone. Just make sure yours fits you perfectly.
An asymmetrical dress is an excellent option for those who aren’t sure of the formality of an event or party. An asymmetrical dress will have two sides of a different length. Sometimes the dress is longer at the back than the front, or shorter on one side. You can also find asymmetrical dresses that are sleeveless on one side and with a long sleeve on the other side. There are so many variations of asymmetrical dresses that flatter any body shape!
