There are styles and then there are styles which catch your attention for all the right reasons. On the red carpet recently, we spotted a style that has been doing the rounds with popular celebrities at different events – that of an asymmetrical hems at the front and back.
Seeing the popularity it has always enjoyed and continues to enjoy till this date, our style inspiration of the day is wearing asymmetrical hems at the front and back.
Casual asymmetrical front and back hem skirt
Earlier this month, we spotted Heather Morris at the Glee academy screening in Los Angeles, donning a boho chic printed skirt with a shorter front hem and a longer back hem.
Heather sported the look rather casually, teaming it with a fitted pink and black vest and wore wooden white block heels over black socks. The thin beige belt worn over the skirt and the minimalistic street jewellery further added to the casualness of the asymmetrical hem skirt. Heather chose to keep her makeup minimal with blown dry shoulder length hair left open and just a hint of pink on her lips.
Formal asymmetrical front and back hem dresses
While heather chose to don a casual look with the asymmetrical hem skirt, the style of asymmetrical front and back hems can really be updated to be far more stylish and formal.
You would know what I am talking about when you see the asymmetrical hem dresses donned by Marielle Jaffe and Stephanie Pratt at the 4th Annual Night of Generosity Gala Event at Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel last week in Los Angeles.
Marielle wore a beautiful sleeveless, border print beige and green dress, with the front hem skimming her mid thighs and the back hem being ankle length. Her black wedges and almost no accessory , nude made up look, ensured that the focus remained on the asymmetrical hem dress.
The shorter front hem length suited Marielle beautifully as it tastefully showed off her well toned legs.
At the same event, TV serial “The Hills” star Stephanie Pratt looked radiant in an asymmetrical front and back hem Marc Bouwer powder blue draped wrap dress.
The dress had a cinched waist and a slightly wavy lettuce hem. The front hem reached Stephanie just above the knees, whereas the back hem of the dress was floor length. Stephanie looked hot with the metallic flower necklace and her ensemble was further enhanced by her strappy beige sandals.
