High-low hems, one-shoulder style elements – asymmetry in fashion

Sometimes you are just in the mood to add a curve-ball to your outfit and give it a certain flair. As trends come and go, asymmetrical hemlines and necklines have been there, more or less depending on the trends of the moment, as a styling option to add a bit of dare. Asymmetrical hemlines (also called high-low, mullet, waterfall or dip hemlines) came to the fore in recent fashion history in 2011. Before that asymmetrical hemlines appeared in the 1870’s and 1880’s and again in  the 1920’s and early 1930’s.  A bare shoulder or a bit of leg can say ‘demur but daring’, ‘classy but sassy’. See how these stars model the allure of this style element.
