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?
Elliatt is sold at stores such as Bloomingdales, The Iconic, Nordstrom, and Revolve.

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. =)
Black is <3! I love your outfit! This one shoulder was perfectly fit to you.
Thank you Katrina! I do stay loyal to my black outfits, but once in a while I like to change it up. Hehe.
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 🙂
Thank you Aurela! I love an outfit with a “twist.” Makes for an interesting and statement look. Yes, these sunnies are one of my go-tos and they are so affordable!
i’m still totally in the off should trend!! i still remember when one shoulder was all the craze maybe 5-7 yrs ago! Though I really love the cut out effect of your one shoulder top! Makes me wanna pull out this Carriesque one shoulder dress I have.
Omg, I do too! Remember when Kim Kardashian basically only wore the one shoulder dress like ALL THE TIME? Well, it’s back! Haha. And please do pull that one shoulder dress out Diana! You must!
Absolutely loving this outfit! You have such a signature look with sunglasses and long legs haha 🙂 I am also loving your nails, they’re such a great design!
Thank you Mariann. I am a total sunnies lover (as if you couldn’t tell). I can be closing my eyes behind every photo and no one would know! =)
This off shoulder top is so original !
I’m in love.
Thank you Margot. Isn’t it such a beautiful top? Lately I am in love with all the Australian designers – they are amazing!
That top is super cute! and I love your nails!
Thank you Yuka! I try to do my own manis so appreciate the love!
Totally agree about the off shoulder trend! Loving this one shoulder top tho! Its so unique but still on trend for the season!

Remember when the one shoulder was in a few years ago? Glad it is coming back with so many cute styles!
Love this top, so quirky, im a big fan of one shoulder exposed, although it definitely depends on the cut of the top, this ones perf!

Thank you Dana! Me too, I love a one shoulder top and glad this trend is coming back!
I love the length of this dress!
Thank you Jessi!
Still obsessing over that ring of yours… and loving this one shoulder trend, especially on you! You make everything look amazing, Christine. Have a lovely day! xoxo, sharon
Thank you Sharon. Yes, this Mejuri ring is one of my favs for sure.
I’m obsessed with your top! Love every bit of this look. You look mega chic in all black!
Thank you Raysa! The top is definitely a statement piece and I love that the off the shoulder can still be trendy even when one shoulder is only bared. I do love my monochromatic black but I can’t help it, black is always chic! =)
You look incredible. I love the one shoulder look and am keeping an eye out for some good ones while I’m travelling. They’re such a nice transition from off the shoulder for Fall!
Yes, I definitely think the one shoulder will quickly take over the off the shoulder. There are already so many styles out there that I love, but this one definitely is super classy in my humble opinion.
Such a chic look! I especially love those wonderful sunglasses. :]

Thank you Carmen! Yes, these Quay sunnies are definitely one of my go-to pairs (as if you couldn’t tell). =)
This is so beautiful! You look gorgeous!
Thanks Julie! I hope you are having a great week so far!
I love one shoulder more than off shoulder (should say I dun like off shoulder at all)! The fact that just one shoulder is showing makes the whole look sexier!
http://www.maleemaleehong.com | http://www.facebook.com/maleemaleehong
I am surprised you haven’t caved in yet for the off the shoulder look. =) But I agree, there is something even sexier about a one shoulder look indeed. Thanks Margaret!
the top shows of your bone structure so well <3 it doesn't matter if the style is overdone as long as you pull it of really well <3
I totally agree with you Angel, it’s mostly in the way you wear it and the confidence you exude. Anything looks amazing if you werk it!
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
Thank you Sharon you are so sweet. I think the one shoulder is definitely a way to keep up with the off the shoulder trend and is more flattering on all body types!
Thank you Olga! I hope you are having an amazing week so far!
Loving this wild look in your one shoulder romper Christine! BTW, I’ve dropped you a DM on IG earlier – not sure if you have seen it 😉
Thanks Aldora. I do love this trend too…maybe more than the off the shoulder. Hehe. I will check my DM, must have missed it!
This is the coolest one shoulder top that I’ve ever seen! You are so fierce, I love it!
Thank you Tina! It is pretty edgy isn’t it? I am obsessed with these Australian designers lately, they definitely have major game!
You look so gorgeous hun…great photos luv…
Thank you Neha! I hope you are having an amazing week babe!
Girl! how many chanel bags do you have =P
You are too funny. I love that your eyes always go to my shoes and bags! =)
Loving the top x
Thanks Yuliya! I am loving the one shoulder tops lately!
I’m still loving the OTS trend but this one shoulder is amazing!! It’s different and unexpected, which I think is fantastic!
Allison / Joy and Ivy
Me too, I still appreciate the off the shoulder, but I am loving all the one shoulder tops I am seeing lately. Plus it is a good transition into Fall. =)
Wow this romper is amazing and I love how you styled it! You look great from head to toe!
xx, Carmen – http://www.carmitive.com
Thank you Carmen. This outfit is actually a two piece, but I can see where it looks like a romper. =)
You are seriously so fabulous, Christine! I love the shape of this outfit. Such a good transition to fall.
Thank you Christina you are so sweet! I am so excited for fall fashion to arrive, but until then, let’s keep it up with the cold shoulder trend!
I love this one shoulder top. You’re right about showing off some tanned collarbones. Pairing it with a black shorts and nude heels made this outfit so chic and stylish. Awesome styling!xx
Thank you Kandja! Everyone and anyone has beautiful collarbones so why not show them off!
Such a simple, but amazingly stylish outfit. You look stunning in it!
xo, Lora | http://www.cherrycolastyle.com
Thanks Lora. Yes, I am all about simplicity but making a statement with certain pieces. Basics always take you far but they definitely don’t have to be boring!
I am loving exposed shoulders any old way! Off the shoulder or one shoulder.. I can’t wait to be wearing both come Spring!
Killer outfit as always!
Hi Emily! This off the shoulder (one or both) is definitely here to stay. There are so many amazing options out there and can’t wait to see how you style them all!
It’s impossible to choose, I love em all and will rock the “cold shoulder” trend until it dies! You look amazing in black!!!
You are the queen of off the shoulder and rock everything so well Amy! And as much as I love you in floral, you also do all black very well too!
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. =)
You look drop dead gorgeous in this outfit, wow! I love the asymmetrical design – it really shows off your figure! Fab manicure, by the way.
Thank you so much Gabrielle! I am a big fan of asymmetrical hems on top or on bottom so I guess that was another feature that drew me to this top! I’ve been playing around with some mani designs so thanks for noticing! xoxo!
Beautiful combo! xoxo
Thank you Dolce! I hope you are having an amazing week (almost weekend woohoo)!
This outfit is so chic! –Hanna Lei
Thank you Hanna! Have a fab weekend babe!
One-shoulders are sexy and lovely. You look wonderful!
Thanks Missy. I completely agree, yay for the one shoulder!
You always look so effortless, love it! I remember when one-shoulders became trendy in Europe I was in middle school and I would beg my parents to buy me some haha
Hi Cassiopee, what a beautiful name! Thank you so much. Yes, the one shoulder was trendy a few years ago (remember when Kim Kardashian couldn’t stop wearing them?), and now they are back again!
Wow! These photos are totally magazine worthy & you’re stunning!!
Thank you so much Syd, you are so sweet! Hope you have a great Friday! xoxo!
Love this outfit! The one shoulder top looks amazing on you!
Thanks Julia! The one shoulder is different than the off the shoulder but still works beautifully, doesn’t it?
Loving this unique top – and your mani is perfection! Have a great weekend!
Thank you Lauren. I love finding unique and statement tops. Hope your weekend is amazing!
I seriously love the one shoulder look! SOOO chic.
Thanks Lauren! You are too sweet. I hope your weekend is off to a great start!

Have a great Sunday evening,
Ein super Look, liebe Carolin! Die Choker Kette steht die einfach unglaublich gut! Ich habe mir bis jetzt noch keine zugelegt, da ich mir nicht sicher bin, ob sie auch wirklich zu mir passt. Ein Faible für schmale Schals habe ich aber allemal 🙂
Dir einen schönen Abend,

Beautiful outfit, so stylish 🙂 thanks for sharing!
Thank you Camille!
