Work All the Angles With These Asymmetric Neckline Tops

Necklaces are an easy way to instantly upgrade even the most boring top. Now some even come with necklaces already attached. But there’s another way to liven up traditional tops. We’re talking about asymmetric necklines.

When we say asymmetric, we don’t mean those one shoulder-exposing tops popular back in the early 2000s. (Although they do have their time and place.) No, we’re referring to tanks, tees and sweaters that look like someone accidentally slipped their head into an armhole. When, in reality, the illusion comes courtesy of a cut-out, mismatched straps or two tops layered over one another.

Regardless of the how, why you should add them to your wardrobe is pretty clear. They have the power to amp up any skirt, pair of pants or shorts in your closet. If you’re dressing for the real world, stick with straightforward slacks or skirts. If you read from the bible of street style stars, take a risk by teaming them with acid-wash jeans or not-so-basic khakis.
