It’s hard to believe that it’s already spring, even though the sun is almost always shining in LA. With a new season in full swing, it’s time to revamp our wardrobes with new staple pieces and the latest trends. One of my favorite trends of the moment is asymmetrical tops, and you can wear them with pretty much anything in your closet.
Last year off-the-shoulder tops definitely had their moment, but it’s time to trade them in for their one-shoulder counterparts—for the time being at least. My favorite thing about this trend is that not only are asymmetrical tops more versatile than others, they can also be dressed up or down to fit your needs.
I recently picked up a super form-flattering version by Hellessy from Intermix, with button detailing. It’s the perfect top to wear anywhere from lunch with my friends to a more formal dinner—it just works that well.
We’re definitely not limited when it comes to having options for different styles of asymmetrical tops. If you’re someone who favors prints, you can find an array of everything from stripes to polka dots to stars—you name it. There also more structured styles, such as ruffled detailing or accentuated shoulder pads. Of course, for those who are more into crop tops or bodysuits, those are around to fill your closets as well.
From Day to Night
As I mentioned before, while these one-shoulder tops are versatile they’re even more transitional. Making a purchase is more relieving when you know you’ll get more use out of it, and what’s better than taking your top from day to night? For brunch with the girls, pair yours with a pair of boyfriend jeans or a denim skirt. If you’re headed on a date or a more fancy dinner, pull out your favorite pair of heels and a statement bag to make your outfit even more eye-catching. If your office has more of a casual vibe, you can get away with pulling off this spring trend at work too. Paired with some skinny jeans and flat sandals or chunky heels you’ll be the trendiest girl at your next meeting.
