How the One-shoulder Top Became the Shirt of the Summer

Some trends just lose their luster once everyone and their mother picks them up. We’ve seen this happen with the button-down, A-line, denim skirt; culottes; Stan Smiths; and crop tops. Now, it’s the off-the-shoulder top that’s ventured into overexposed territory. The loose silhouette was a novel trend in 2015 (with the arrival of the best-selling Rosie Assoulin Tulum shirt that featured balloon sleeves), and has since moseyed into designer collections and worked its way into almost every high-street store. If you’re looking for a fresh alternative that has a similar feminine appeal, opt for the one-shoulder top instead. The asymmetric style makes for a chic rendition that delivers flattering results. Ensure your look is current with structured styles from Johanna Ortiz and Rosetta Getty, or look for iterations that feature dramatic sleeves and cascading ruffles. In the slides below, shop our edit of one-shoulder tops to stay a fashionable step ahead this summer.
