A Unique Asymmetry

It’s important to remember that the word “unique” isn’t always a good thing.

Like, when Forever 21 describes this top as being “a unique stretch tunic,” they might intend for that to be a positive, but it’s safe to say that “unique” doesn’t mean “flattering” or “appealing.”

This top is what happens when you fail your Home Ec class, but you don’t want to get a failing grade, so instead you try to explain that it’s fashionable. Or, “unique.” It apparently has two 3/4 length sleeves, but you can only see one because of the fabric draped over the left side. Don’t stare too long, though, because the fabric will make you go cross-eyed.

I don’t want to say this tunic would have been fine if it were in a different fabric, but it would be less likely to induce motion-sickness if it were in a solid fabric, rather than what appears to be “bar code.”

I also like that it comes off of a big flowy top with diagonal stripes and then tightens up around the hips with horizontal stripes, for maximum unflattering proportions. I especially like the dark chunk below the thighs, as if to highlight how ugly and ill-fitting the whole thing is. Not that you wouldn’t be able to figure that out otherwise, but thanks, Forever 21, for putting in that extra effort.
