Quite often we opt for the cocktail dress when we are going out for dinner or an artsy event, it somehow is the default and safer option to look all dressed up, but we like to stir things up a little by wearing a statement asymmetric midi skirt for night. Staying clear from the ballgown effect that comes with this more demure length, we think that there are plenty of original options at the moment, from J.W. Anderson to 3.1 Phillip Lim and Alexander McQueen that will get you noticed. All you need is a fitted crop top with a cross-over detail to add some architectural details. We opted for cream and white because the look works equally well in summer and winter.
If fabrics are completely mismatched do not worry about it, as the different textures will only add more depth to the outfit. Style simply with statement pumps that also echo cut-out details or an exaggerated pointy toe for maximum effect. We can’t seem to take off this purple pair by Christian Louboutin, which goes with literally any colour of the colour spectrum. Carry a colourful clutch for maximum effect or keep the look elegant with a Valentino Glam-lock shoulder bag. Asymetric midi skirt by J.W. Anderson, Crop top by Elizabeth & James and a stack of pendants from Monica Vinader.
