I’ve mentioned my love for asymmetrically cut garments before and today I’ll say it again: there is just something about an uneven hemline that gets me all excited. I think I like that it looks a bit spunky and unexpected, as if saying, look at me, I’m not quite the stuffy academic you thought I was, I’m wearing an uneven cut cardigan! How’s that for risqué?
Ok, so maybe’s it’s not that riqué, but it is somewhat unconventional. And it usually allows for the garment to be styled in a plethora of ways. Just check out the Moth Possibilities Sweater and all the ways we three Chics have worn it, the Wonder Wrap, and today’s example. I have worn it simple and belted or with the longer ends tied together. Yesterday, I tied the shorter ends together while letting the longer uneven ones hang down.
What do you think of asymmetrical cuts? Do you share my passion for their unconventionality or are you rather weary of all that ambiguous fabric and questionable design plan? S.
