Trend of the week: One shoulder

Feeling the cold shoulder? You're bang on trend, writes Annmarie O'Connor.


Looks like fashion has taken a new angle. Although the Bardot and keyhole shoulder trends still pepper our Instagram feeds, style savants are now more asymmetricallyinclined.

One-shoulder sleeve and strap detail are creating multiple looks that allude to both modern geometry and breezy boho. Sharply cut with graphic prints or edged with rococo ruffles - the choice is yours.


Layer a tissue-thin underpinning beneath a one-shoulder top for extra coverage and visual interest. Add a blazer to sharpen the look.

Pair a ruffled one-shoulder top with love-worn vintage jeans and block heels for off-duty elegance.

Layer a one-shoulder dress with an asymmetric hem, over a pair of cigarette pants. Add a light polo neck for cooler weather.

Pair a one-shoulder dress with statement earrings (we love Parfois and Mango), a clutch and single-sole courts for wedding guest glam.
