CATWALK TREND DECODED
HOW TO STYLE AN ASYMMETRIC SKIRT
By Joanna Kyte, 1 August 2017
For 2017, designer JW Anderson successfully struck the fashion middle ground between adult and cool. The result? Fresh-as style made up of a one-sided pleat skirt, trophy-textured jacket and back-to-school brogues.
Bringing the asymmetric trend into the land of daywear, this street styler is giving alt tartan vibes that you’ll want to cop, now. Match your skewed-style midi skirt with a logo tee and a distressed, oversized jacket. Fancy mules encouraged.
Try it out
With two mega examples under your belt, it’s time to test the trend for yourself. Enter this gingham-print wrap skirt with XXL ruffles from Stylenanda and you’ve got a prize piece to work with. Last decision: dress it down with socks and sneaks or step into the evening with your best going-out heels.
