Asymmetry is in

Symmetry may be beautiful, but asymmetry is interesting - and if you're looking to turn some heads at your next formal event, a dress with some uneven detailing could be just the way!

There are lots of ways to go asymmetrical in your next formal outfit. One easy way? A one-shouldered look. This stylish cut is totally trendy right now, so you'll have lots of options - from a simple embellished strap to a single long sleeve that goes all the way down to your wrist.

  High-low and uneven hems are another great asymmetrical look. A high-low dress features a full-length, floor-grazing hem in the back that gradually slopes upward in the front - a "best of both worlds" option that lets you have the sexiness of a minidress with the elegance of a formal gown. The shift can be dramatic, revealing those hot gams, or subtle, just showing off the tips of your shoes.

Another way to show off your unique side is with some asymmetrical detailing - like a frill that only runs down one half of the gown, or an embellishment pattern that's totally unexpected and one-of-a-kind.

 Want to incorporate just a tiny touch of asymmetry? Consider a pair of earrings that match but aren't identical - like a key and a lock.
