Reader Beth e-mailed me this question:
I’ve started branching out into asymmetric pieces. Nothing too dramatic but I often find myself unsure of what to do with them. For instance, I have a dress that has an asymmetric neckline and I love it, it’s totally my style and it’s comfy/fun to wear. But when I start looking to add accessories or a cardigan or something else, I feel like I’m not doing a great job of making the best of the asymmetry. It looks… not right. Any tips on how to integrate asymmetrical pieces into your wardrobe?

I was wondering if you consider doing a blog post or offer some advice on styling long cardigans so they don’t look frumpy. I just bought my first one [and] it seemed like a good way to convert some of my summer dresses into fall or winter ensembles, and I see outfits with long cardis that I just love on other people. But I’m not sure what I think about making ti work for me. I’m on the tall side with a proportional curvy figure. The cardigan I bought is nice (and I love the belt that comes with it), but it has pockets that make it not lie super-flat over the hips. And basically it just didn’t look quite “right” when I tried it with some of the dresses I’d been thinking of.
