While you're probably totally excited over your new edgy inverted bob, you're also likely confused over what ensembles are most ideal for enhancing your new 'do. Also known as an asymmetrical bob, this hairstyle has a geometric appearance with shorter layers in the back that gradually become longer toward the front. Whether your cut includes a soft shift toward longer layers near your face or an intense, angled appearance with sharp points, opt for outfits that put the attention on that chic hair of yours.
Little Black Dress
When you're rockin' an inverted bob, creating a look for a night on the town with friends or a date is simple. Rather than opting for busy prints, keep your look super simple so your tresses steal the show by pulling on an LBD. Go for a scoop neckline with spaghetti straps so the front layers of your hair graze your collarbones -- super sexy. Imagine your dress falls a few inches above your knees. Step into a pair of black platform pumps and your look is ready.
Opt for geometric detailing in your look to enhance the strong, angular lines in your inverted bob. You can approach this in two simple ways. First, imagine yourself in a pale blue, round-neck blouse with fold-over, rectangular fabric detailing along the neckline. For a more casual take, visualize a light blue V-neck graphic T-shirt with all-over black triangles. With either top, pull on a pair of dark charcoal skinny jeans and slide your feet into black leather booties.
Bateau Neckline, Scooped Back
Play up the idea of inversion -- just like your hair is a reversal of the classic bob, so is your top. Opt for a light purple, silky top with a bateau neckline and a scooped back. Your top, though classic, looks as though it's been rotated. Your angled hair looks just as shocking over a clean, solid color in the front as your shorter back layers look over your exposed back. Pull on a black high-waisted miniskirt and pop your feet into nude stiletto-heel sandals. Perfect.
Amp up your style even more by having extra fun with angles. Go for a one-shoulder sweater to create a ton of visual interest next to the long front layers of your inverted bob. Envision yourself in a black, one-shoulder sweater with a banded hem that falls to your waist. Slide into a pair of medium-blue boyfriend jeans rolled at the ankles. Step into nude flats for a laid-back, playful look that both complements and softens your angular hairstyle.
