Sexy yet understated, there’s an undeniable appeal to flaunting a little shoulder. And the single-sleeved look is slightly more innovative and slightly less popular than last year’s off-the-shoulder trend—two reasons we love it. From cocktail hour to Sunday strolls, this versatile silhouette can work for any occasion. So check out our 8 favorite ways to wear the trend.
1. Streetstyle Star
How are the fashion girls wearing this trend? With a leather mini, of course. A structured ruffle top adds a dramatic flourish to a simple skirt.
2. The Updated Classic
The jeans and white shirt get a stylish upgrade with a crisp one-shoulder top. The cut out reveals just the right amount of skin to make this look unexpectedly flattering. Perfect for weekend outings or casual Fridays at work.
3. Night Owl
Hitting the town? A sleeveless one-shoulder and sexy black skinnies make the perfect outfit for a night out. Add some sparkling gold accessories to finish off the look.
4. Pattern Play
The runways were studded with one-shoulder crop tops like this adorable Self-Portrait number. We love it worn with a high-waisted skirt in a contrasting print. But why stop there? Go for a full-on monochrome look by mixing and matching patterns.
5. The Shirtdress
An asymmetrical hem and a cut-out shoulder make a simple t-shirt dress extraordinary. The options are endless when it comes to styling this piece, but we say give the Western trend a try with a pair of cowboy boots and inspired accessories.
6. Cocktail Attire
For cocktail parties and more formal events, look no further than a classic one-shoulder dress. Keep it simple with a pair of pumps and a dark lip. It’s the perfect look for anything from work gatherings to gallery openings.
7. Little Red Number
This quirky trend deserves a playful look in everyone’s favorite color of the season. Red. With a twisted-knot top and high-waisted shorts, it’s got a fun vintage poolside feel.
8. Day to Night
One of the best things about these trendy tops is they translate amazingly from day to night. Toss on a pair of colorful trousers and a fun clutch, and you’re ready to go from daytime to drinks on a whim.
