Breaking the Symmetry

I don’t know if it’s the above average temperatures in Chapel Hill or the rapidly approaching New York Fashion Week that is making me excited for spring trends, but I’ve been anticipating the upcoming season by scoping out fashion websites for must-have spring pieces.

One of my favorite trends for the upcoming spring season is asymmetrical, solid-colored skirts and dresses. I’m talking maxi skirts with an edge. This look is the perfect combination of sexy and subtle. It’s conservative, yet reveals just enough leg to keep you guessing. Whether chiffon, cotton, or some other material, let’s face it—they’re fun, flirty, and perfect for the spring. Check out Miranda Kerr in this pastel pink Eva Brazzi dress. She looks gorgeous.

You can find this modern-age Cinderella look on websites like and Here are a few:

Anthropologie Skirt $138

Preen Skirt $462

Kevork Kiledjian Skirt $750

Blue Life Skirt $108 dress- currently not sold in the U.S.

The beauty of these skirts and dresses is that they are statement pieces. You really don’t have to do much else to make these outfits look good. In fact, for an awesome day look I would suggest pairing your asymmetrically-cut skirt with a simple top—a basic cotton tee will do! If you’re looking to dress this look up for a night on the town, try pairing it with a chunky, bright-colored necklace and some sexy heels. I’m telling you—it’s so easy! These pieces are sure to make you stand out in the crowd.

The signature IT necklace

To add flavor to that simple t-shirt, jeans and boots, add a chunky statement necklace to make your outfit pop.  These bold necklaces transform boring outfits and immediately catch peoples’ eye.  According to, these necklaces are known as Bib Necklaces.  Shaped similarly to a bib (but of course much cuter and smaller), these necklaces are an accessory must have!  For additional flare, the sparkly statement necklaces look amazing, especially with that perfect LBD!   In addition, colorful floral necklaces are a must for this spring! For a more mature look, try a statement necklace that layers.  I have found, either a chunky statement necklace or layered necklaces make any outfit that much better!
