The 90s vibe of a one-shoulder silhouette conjures up the cool-girl nostalgia of the Spice Girls and double denim era and is a shape we'll be coming back to again and again this summer season.
Post isolation evenings have looked cooler than with these one shoulder gems in tow, adding a little oomph to a day-to-night ‘fit and extending your usual ‘jeans and a nice top’ options for dinner and drinks galore.
There’s something seductive about that extra bit of skin peeping out

I love how versatile this silhouette can be, perfect for showing some skin in the summer and dialling up a daytime outfit, whilst still keeping things minimalist. I’ve gone for this simple white one-shoulder jersey with light denim jeans and chunky sandals for an understated everyday outfit that’s as good for the morning coffee run as it is for brunch with the girls. Paired with a trench coat because you know how those British summers like to go.
Now I’m going to be honest, I’m not sure how I feel about one-shoulder tops. The last time I wore one I think I was about 10. It had diamantes and a flared sleeve and I think I paired it with flared trousers, a metal belt and a denim baker boy hat (that probably ALSO had diamantes haha). I’ve gone pretty paired back and “safe” with my choice! A black body with a two-strap-on-one-side-jobby. I’d probably wear it with these paper bag utility shorts and some sliders!
I’m still loving all things lilac so this look is centred around some comfy but statement trousers I picked up from ASOS recently. They’re so flowy which means the one shoulder fitted tops works super well in adding some shape and dimension to the look, plus I love that it feels very 90s! Dressed up with some cute accessories and I’m ready for drinks or dinner in no time!
I recently purchased this one-shoulder top from Weekday and I love it, it’s really flattering and goes with so many outfits. I’ve styled it with some longline denim shorts and some Birkenstocks for a fun casual daytime look. I also found this bag on ASOS which is giving me SERIOUS Bottega Veneta vibes, but for £22, bargain!
I’ve gone for this one-shoulder body as it’s got a bit of drama with the flounced sleeve and I hate it when tops ride up! I feel like wide trousers are going to keep making their comeback and these ones with the splits are perfect for summer. Have finished the look with lovely lavender trend-focused pieces.
