Say Goodbye To The White T-Shirt, Asymmetric Tops Are The New Wardrobe Basic

Say bye to boring with these cool asymmetric tops.

Bored of the usual outfits and ensembles you cycle through day in and out? Give your wardrobe a much-needed rejuvenation and a zap of style with these distinctive asymmetric tops. These designs are playful and fun, and they would most definitely show off your impeccable sartorial sensibilities.

Read on for a few of our picks.

Silk-jacquard top, US$1,505 (S$2,036), Oscar de la Renta
Drawing inspiration from traditional Indian scarves, this Oscar de la Renta pussy bow top features a unique nature print that departs from the usual florals. With its lightweight silk material, it’s a perfect summer-friendly top. Wear with a pair of cigarette pants and pointed heels for a sharp work look. Crepe top, US$826 (S$1,118), Roland Mouret
The asymmetric sleeve detail on this Roland Mouret top is masterfully balanced with an extra long bow, making the piece modern. The sleeve detail also has a slit that will flutter as you walk, revealing little peeks of skin. Totally sexy and definitely a conversation starter. Silk-chiffon top, US$716 (S$969), Caroline Constas Mallory
With its puffed sleeves, gathered, ruffled detail and sweetheart neckline, this piece from Caroline Constas gives a nod to Victorian era dressing but with a contemporary twist, thanks to its trailing asymmetric hem that gives a floaty feel. Econyl bikini top, US$57 (S$77), All Sister Pyramid
Much like a bralette, a bikini top can be easily styled for work — just a slip into a blazer to complete a sexy yet professional look. We’re loving this All Sister design as it uses eco-friendly Econyl fabric that’s said to be made from litter found in the sea. Silk-charmeuse top, US$431 (S$583), Michelle Mason
This wine-coloured silk-charmeuse top will help you nail that corporate look. Its slinky handfeel is pure elegance, but to look even more polished, finish the look with either a pair of wide-legged pants or tailored trousers. Both warm gold or cool silver jewellery will work with this versatile hue. Knit top, US$99 (S$134), Jacquemus
This light knit top – and Jacquemus asymmetric signature – is the perfect switch up from a basic white tee, without steering too far from its practical sensibilities. Pair with a pair of jeans for that casual, weekend look. Stretch-cotton jersey wrap top, US$449 (S$610), Rosetta Getty
This Rosetta Getty cotton wrap top switches things up with the asymmetrical detail being at the bottom half of the top. This wrap-around design is extremely flattering to the waste and the light fabric makes it breathable and a great option for all day wear.
