ONE | SHOULDER

August 15, 2016

As much as I love the off the shoulder trend, they are everywhere. Doesn’t make it a bad thing, just an overdone thing. So pulling back from the off the shoulder trend, but still loving showing off some tanned collarbones, here comes the one shoulder.

This fashion-forward top from Australian brand, Elliatt, is one of my favorites. Not only does it still give off major sexy collarbone vibes, the swoop of fabric across the front helps to create an illusion of some décolletage! The final touch is the built in choker which makes accessorizing this top a no brainer because you don’t have to.

This top can be worn with just about anything, but since it’s still hot out, I chose a pair of black shorts and nude heels to complete the look. Keeping this outfit chic and classy, I wore my favorite minimal pieces from Mejuri (see the post on these pieces here).

So which trend do you love more, both shoulders exposed or just one?

Perfection! This one-shoulder top looks so stunning on you. Such a chic piece! I really admire your style…it is so bold, monochromatic and you find the most unique statement items that really make your outfits stand out!

Thank you Kate! I am pretty basic and minimal when it comes to my style, but I love a statement piece that speaks for itself. As much as I love the ots trend, I’ve been seeing a lot of one shoulders lately now too which is equally flattering in my opinion. =)

Sexy collarbone indeed ! You are obsoletely right, this top it is sexy with a twist. Total black and nudes together are such a chic combo. The sunnies are my favourite! I need a similar pair 🙂

I love your fierce style, Christine! I’m loving the one shoulder look, it’s so chic and sexy. I love how you finished the look with nude sandals. I do love the off the should trend but I’m really top heavy so it isn’t the most flattering style on me lol. One shoulder is definitely more unique 😉 <3, Sharon

I love this trend!! I agree, OTS’s are literally everywhere and it’s great to add a little touch of both worlds with this look! Plus I love that you don’t constantly have to worry about your neck line creeping above your shoulders like an OTS.

You styled this beautifully!

Thanks Jenn. You’re right, the worst thing an off the shoulder top or dress can do is crawl up the shoulders! So I actually love when the sleeves are separate from the body of the clothing so that you can move your arms freely without worrying about the sleeves coming onto the shoulders. =)
