We noticed a distinct trend during our latest Pinterest browse—something a little different, a little out of left field. That's right: unusual silhouettes. Forget your standard top, your standard pants (or hairdo), we're all about gravity-defying pieces and silhouettes that scream "atypical."

Click through for 10 reasons that straightforward is looking rather boring right now.
