It’s the latest ‘90s-inspired trend to hit the stores for spring this year and it’s one of our favorites – the one-shoulder trend.
Whether we’re talking tops or dresses, asymmetric shoulders are making a serious comeback and it’s the perfect ‘jeans and nice top’ or cute LBD styling. Choosing from Shop It To Me’s hottest brands, we’ve done the leg work for you and picked out our favorite one-shoulder pieces online right now so that you can nail the trend no matter what your style.
The best one-shoulder tops and dresses
This trend looks so so good when paired with the fine knitwear trend of spring. Is this the perfect combination? We think it just might be.
Choose anything from black or neutral to brights but make sure the knit is soft, fitted and choose either one-shoulder strap details or full one sleeve knits. Style this look with tailored pants for effortless chic style or add to straight-leg jeans for the perfect off-duty-model weekend look.
Here are some of our top knitwear picks.
Simple stretch knit from The Range nails the look.
And we LOVE a knit tank. Paired with the one-shoulder strap, it’s a pair of jean’s BFF.
This Autumn Cashmere knit pairs up the one-shoulder trend with the pull sleeve trend – blog coming soon! – and we are here for it!
Not just tops and sweaters, knitted dresses lend themselves perfectly to the one-shoulder look too. This simple pick from L’Academie is the perfect spring choice.
The one-shoulder trend really is a ‘90s detail. Therefore, it makes sense to keep it totally ‘90s when doing this look. What does that mean? Simple and black.
Minimal. Fitted. One-shoulder.
Again, super simple. But this stunning Susana Monaco dress also includes some flattering waist ruching as a simple added detail. LOVE THIS. Style as you see it – simple strappy heels and a flash of glitz with statement earrings.
Add some ‘90s feathers? Sure, why not.

If you’re looking for full-length and want to nail this trend this year, this BCBG Max Azria dress exudes ‘90s supermodel aesthetics. We LOVE the front cut-out and the full-length single sleeve. Not only is this dress super flattering and elongates your body and your arms but it’s effortlessly on-trend too.
Add some sultry detailing and lace accents and this is what you get…
Alexander Wang was always going to nail this look. This gown is currently reduced to under 50% of the RRP so if you love designer dresses but not the price tag, this is an awesome find.
If you’re just as obsessed with the sweatpant trend as we are – and super happy that styling sweatpants with sneakers is now considered 100% street style – then you’ll like this look. Just add simple stretch bodysuits and tank tops with one-shoulder detailing to your loungewear and sweatpants and you’ve nailed the trend for the season without breaking a sweat.
Perfect simplicity – opt for a one-shoulder bodysuit instead of a simple racer or tank bodysuit when styling your most laidback outfits this season. This pick from Commando is the ideal shape and the quality of these suits are unquestionable.
Prefer a full one sleeve bodysuit? We love this flecked red one from Urban Outfitters.
Looking for the one-shoulder alternative to a classic black t-shirt that has become your go-to staple? This is it from Philanthropy. Love the short sleeve cut and obsessed with the subtle ruffle detail that makes it easy to dress up or down and pair with anything from sweats to leather or denim pants.
This asymmetric tank from Autumn Cashmere is a spring and summer essential in every way possible.
On the pricier side, we just had to also include this awesome Ben Taverniti Unravel Project tank because it nails the look.
If you’ve got a special occasion, wedding or gala event coming up in 2020 and you’re not sure what to wear, why not make it on-trend and effortless with a one-shoulder evening dress? This look is graceful, elegant and subtly on-trend without being OTT. Event wear perfection? Maybe.
Fun, flirty and statement? Opt for red, one-shoulder, and super short with this bright and beautiful creation from BCBG Max Azria.
If you prefer a looser fit, this stunning draping special occasion dress from Halston is style perfection. It’s white so steer clear for weddings, but christenings, charity events, garden parties or any other summertime special occasion – this is ideal. And the price is currently half from through Shop It To Me.
Switch last season’s simple slip to a one-shoulder slip dress to nail this season’s look. This floral Reformation dress is spectacular. Perfect for any formal event and easy to dress down so that you can wear it time and time again.
Or go all out…
This Carmen Marc Valvo oozes Hollywood vibes.
It’s not just clothing that looks great with an asymmetric shoulder. This year, some of the best pieces of swimwear we’ve seen so far have included this chic trend.
A one-shoulder swimsuit is the perfect option when styling with a skirt or shorts, giving you a chic and stylish bodysuit look with the practicality of a swimsuit at the beach or pool. One-shoulder bikinis make for an edgy choice – just remember to pull the strap down when you’re in the sun to avoid dodgy tan lines!
These are some of our musts for this summer.
Keep it super simple but with a gorgeous pop of color from Mara Hoffman.
Or add a touch of extra detailing with this tie strap swimsuit from Lisa Marie Fernandez.
We’re obsessed with this one-shoulder swimsuit from Norma Kamali. The cut-out waist gives you the look of both a bikini and a swimsuit – two in one!
If you’re looking for something particularly special – maybe you’ve got a bachelorette party on the horizon? – and you don’t mind investing a little more into your swimwear, you need to know about the brand, PatBO. These swimsuits are all about extra flirty and feminine styling with some seriously cute ruffle and print details.
Simple solid color always goes down a treat at the beach.
Lastly, we LOVE this one-shoulder bikini from Self Portrait. It’s just as beautifully made as any of the SP tops or dresses but this baby is for poolside. Also love the high-waist, ultra-flattering bikini bottoms.
No matter what your individual style, a one-shoulder look can be worked into your wardrobe this season and it’s the perfect balance of feminine and edgy that will continue to look stylish long after this spring and summer.
