As much as I love the “off the shoulder” trend, I think I might love the one shoulder top trend even more? It comes down to the fact that you can lift your arms when the urge strikes without having to worry about your top shifting out of place. This time of year there are so many occasions that warrant a bit of a statement top – local readers can attest to the elevated fashions at events such as The Devon Horse Show and Radnor Hunt. Then there’s the derby parties, showers (every other weekend!), girls’ night out that actually comes to fruition because who can refuse a midweek margarita when the weather is actually nice, alfresco brunching with champs…. do you want me to keep going because I can? Tuck this one shoulder top into a midi skirt to dress it up or even pair it with cutoff shorts to dress it down. Yes, a strapless bra is still a must (this one or this one are my go-tos), but one shoulder tops stay in place with just enough shoulder action. With any shoulder baring top, I go with a bit of a statement earring instead of a necklace.
