The asymmetrical made its first appearance on the fashion scene in the 1970s when American designer, Roy Halston, released a series of dresses in the style. Taking the concept of elegant cocktail dresses and blending them with Grecian gowns, Halston created this eye-catching design.
After Halston, British fashion designer and businesswoman, Vivienne Westwood created the asymmetrical top in the 80s, and then other designers emerged using the style in other items such as the half-jacket worn by Kourtney Kardashian from French haute couture and prêt-à-porter fashion designer, Jean-Paul Gaultier.
The asymmetrical look is best suitable for when going for a simple, defined look where you want to highlight the parts that correspond to one another in shape, size, or arrangement of your outfit. Although it can be a great fashion statement, asymmetrical items need to be worn with caution as they can be distracting and confusing.
The bold asymmetrical look signifies sex appeal, strength and confidence and these celebrities define it in all aspects with the following looks:
