As I particularly insist on going minimalistic and making the best use of your resource to get your paisa's worth, I share some of the most useful yet common style tips, which are not so common when we do a binge shopping.
What Type of Look You Want
This kind of a dress makes you look a class apart. You stand out in a gathering. Here, you should be clear the kind of effect you want. The look you want, that nobody could miss - an asymmetrical look.

What Fabrics would be Right
A high-low asymmetric dress is designed to give the effect of a fall from one side or both sides.
1.To get the perfect look, flowing fabrics like Chiffon, silk or polyester or other synthetic materials are used.
2.Glitz, shimmer, pearls, beads, feather, crystals are used to decorate the fabric / dress for special festive occasions. While you buy such a dress or fabric, make sure that there are no cuts and defects in design.
3.Some dresses are embroidered and have lace work on them. These are delicate pieces so you much check the color fastness and cleaning instructions beforehand.
Synthetic laces are less expensive but harder than cotton or silk/satin work, so you can check your skin sensitivity accordingly to the season, when you will be wearing the dress.

The Unique Selling Point of these asymmetric hemline dresses is their cut. Ideally, they are cut on Bias fabric to give you a body hugging bodice but a flowing hemline.

Pleats, frills can be added to get added style to your look.
The noticeable hemline is knee length from front and long gown from back but you can also get a look where you get one side falling from another shoulder.
