The Asymmetrical Jersey Skirt

If you've been following my style for a while now, you would know I've got a bit of a skirt obsession going on.

This obsession is currently being fuelled by my new LOVE for asymmetrical jersey skirts. If you're familiar with these skirts, you would know it's synonymous with one of my favourite labels, Helmut Lang. Now don't get me wrong, I'm completely aware that asymmetrical skirts (i.e. short at the front, long at the back) have been around for ages, but right now I'm loving the wrap element seen at the front of these style of skirts in particular.

Not only are these skirts super comfortable thanks to the jersey material, but they're also a great transitional piece (perfect for Melbourne weather). They also have an amazing ability to transform from an effortless day look to a more edgy night look.

If you're in love with this skirt style like I am but prefer a more lighter on the wallet option (it's actually an absolute steal), I've found this DIVINE alternative from a label I've been loving recently called Shilla.

I've seen quite a few of these skirts around in different colours but still think a classic black or marle grey would be the most versatile option!
