It seems like every couple of years a neckline style remerges and completely takes over as a trend du jour. Off-the-shoulder tops have been dominating the market for the past handful of seasons but now, one-shoulder tops are set to dethrone them. Thanks to designers with the likes of Preen, Calvin Klein, Fendi, and Isabel Marant, who all championed the trend on their spring 2019 runways, the asymmetrical style is set to be the silhouette of the summer — for once, giving a cold shoulder is highly encouraged.
If you were born in the mid-90s or earlier, chances are you remember rocking a one shoulder top at some point in the 2000s. Those in scarf print or bedazzled form were mainstays when it came to celebrity style, and seeing as all things early to mid-aughts are having a resurgence in popularity, it makes sense they're back — excitingly, they're also better than ever. Whether you're looking for a dressier, more refined style to wear to an upcoming summer wedding or you're looking for something a bit more playful to wear out dancing, there'll be a style you'll love. Below, 20 of the best options on the market right now.
