Asym­met­ri­cal neck­lines are in. Here’s how to wear this stylish off-cen­tre look

The trend for col­lars and hems is asym­met­ri­cal, writes Philippa Ger­rard

Grow­ing tired of off-the-shoul­der tops or those straight-and­nar­row midi skirts? The rules of sym­me­try have their place, but there is a fresh look in town for au­tumn. Asym­met­ri­cal neck­lines are well and truly in, and this of­f­cen­tre look al­lows us to break away from the rigid lines we’re used to. Worn in the cor­rect way, an asym­met­ric col­lar will neatly wrap around your col­lar­bone and ac­cent your dé­col­letage.

In­ten­tion­ally un­even hem­lines also work sim­i­lar magic on your bot­tom half by high­light­ing the slimmest part of your legs.

This un­bal­anced look cre­ates a mod­ern and strik­ing sil­hou­ette which re­quires min­i­mal ac­ces­soris­ing to look pol­ished.

The one-shoul­der look is also far more prac­ti­cal than last sea­son’s off-the-shoul­der bar­dot style cut which con­stantly needed ad­justed to pre­vent it rid­ing up on your arms through­out the day.

In­stead, this trend is stress-free and stylish, and one which is likely to con­tinue through into the win­ter months.

Gen­er­ally speak­ing, off-kil­ter tops call for the bot­tom half to be rea­son­ably sim­ple, so an A-line mini skirt or dark high-waisted jeans will suf­fice.

Or, for a touch of glam­our, you could take your in­spi­ra­tion from the runway where the likes of Calvin Klein and Fendi show­cased a se­ries of glam­orous gowns that wrapped around mod­els’ shoul­ders and twisted at their col­lar bone.

Which­ever way you choose to wear yours, re­mem­ber to keep the rest of your look sim­ple and sweep your hair off your shoul­ders for the big re­veal.
