Hold on while you still can.
As summer weather rages on, you’re probably looking for any way to show a little more skin. While ’90s-era tube tops and spaghetti straps — in the form of slip dresses and tiny tanks — remain a wardrobe staple, it can’t hurt to try something different. According to brands like Monse, Tommy Hilfiger and Alexander Wang, it looks like everyone is all about the one-shoulder look right now. It shouldn’t come as a surprise, though: Chanel showed a one-shoulder bodysuit as early as its Spring 2019 collection. That same season, Oscar de la Renta designed a more romantic long-sleeved version, and Fendi took a more utilitarian approach complete with layered belt bags.
Plus, the trend most likely won’t be going away anytime soon, as we’ve seen it pop up on the Fall 2019 runways, too, including Balmain and Givenchy. But for now, we’re loving this silhouette for the summer, especially when you want the warm-weather season to last a little longer. We couldn’t pick a favorite between one-shoulder tops and dresses, so we rounded up 22 of the best options of both styles to get your hands on right now, from floaty frocks to cropped tops.
