Gone are the days of asymmetrical hemlines being seen only on the red carpet. These leg-showing lines are popping up on the streets and seem particularly popular among the college fashionista crowd.

When it comes to formal gowns, asymmetrical hemlines (like the one seen on Carey Mulligan, below) can make a dress stand out from the crowd. They also allow you to show some leg and showcase your shoes while still maintaining the floor-length look. For everyday, the look will instantly make any outfit edgier. (See the photos above.)

Personally, I think this look is a bold way to mix up your wardrobe, and it's a fun twist on your everyday dress for both day and night. If you're still unsure about this trend, here's an example outfit to get your inspiration going:

Let's discuss!

Would you rock the asymmetrical hem? Is this uneven look a little too unbalanced for your taste? Would you wear this look for day or do you think it is more suitable for night? And most importantly, how would you wear it? Make sure to leave a comment below with your thoughts!
