This season one shoulder tops are the new of-the-shoulder tops making them a bit more weather appropriate while still showing a glimpse of bare shoulders. They are very versatile, very easy to wear and can be a great for a festive season.
Depending on what you wear them with, one shoulder tops or dresses can be chic and glamorous or casual. Either way, though, they come with a little bit of sex appeal. If you are looking for a different and dramatic look, you can’t go wrong with a single shoulder – they provide a coquettish glimpse of skin, but cover enough to keep you comfortable.
As you probably remember from posts here, here and here I had a loving affair going with off-the shoulder tops but now I am ready to move on and try the single shoulder silhouette. There’s something intriguing about seeing one shoulder, probably because it’s a little unexpected and a different way to show some skin.
When it comes to wearing the one shoulder top is all about creating clean lines and showing off a bare shoulder. Here are a few do’s and don’ts on how to best wear this look this season.
Make the shape of the top the main feature of your outfit. The eye is going to be automatically drawn to this area, so keep the rest of your look quite minimal so they don’t compete.
Pick your bra wisely. One-shoulder styles demand a strapless bra. Your bare shoulder provides the beauty of this look – don’t clutter it with a bra strap!
Keep your hair off your bare shoulder. You’ve got it on show so don’t cover it up.
Take extra care of your skin. Your shoulders will be taking the centre stage and you want to create a beautiful glowing effect. You can use a little of illuminator on collarbones and shoulder for an evening event.
Wear a necklace. If you’re going to wear jewellery, go for a cocktail ring or statement earrings – you don’t want a necklace competing with your neckline.
Drape a shoulder bag over your bare shoulder. You’ll completely ruin the line the top is creating, instead wear it over the other shoulder or opt for a clutch.
Cover your shoulders. This is a style that is made to be seen, not layered over.
