Length of the skirt: When it comes to skirts, you just can’t ignore the length. Doing so can turn out to be disastrous and ruin your whole outfit. Since there are many kinds of lengths available in asymmetrical styles, make sure you know which length is suitable for your body type, before buying one.

Mini skirts: An asymmetrical cut essentially lends an angle for skin revelation. Hence, ideally, mini or micro-mini skirts should not be asymmetrical as they are already too revealing.

Short skirts: Asymmetrical short skirts have a tendency to make you look a bit taller. So it’s a win-win combination to show off some skin while keeping things comfortable.

Mid-length skirts: For modest dressing, choose a calf-length asymmetrical skirt.

Knee-length skirts: Knee-length asymmetrical skirts are the most suitable for office but they work for cocktail parties as well.

Full-length asymmetrical skirt: The perfect pick for bohemian feel. These skirts can be worn formally on a beach wedding or a desert safari tour. Wearing an oversized asymmetrical skirt to work meetings or formal events can ruin your impression, so better avoid that completely.

Shoes With asymmetrical Dress/Skirt: Nude stilettos or pointed toes pumps are the two shoes that will sure-shot look amazing with short to knee-length asymmetrical skirts. You can experiment a lot in terms of shoes when it comes to full-length skirts especially. Sneakers and even flip-flops sometimes look cool with a maxi length asymmetrical skirt.

Dressy and sassy

First things first – you are free to wear either tights or pantyhose with asymmetrical skirts, so have no doubt about that. This is also a reason why these skirts make a really chic choice for office. Just remember to take into consideration the color and fabric of your skirt while opting for it for a formal occasion or to work. For light-colored skirts in thinner fabrics, go for pantyhose, while for thicker and darker ones you need to wear tights.

Even without tights or pantyhose, you are absolutely good to go with a formal top tucked into the skirt and color-matched accessories. Now, you want the skirt to be the main focus of your outfit, so it’s better to choose simple and neutral color footwear and draw everyone’s attention up to the skirt. Take a look at the images below for some outfit inspiration.
