When talking about the one shoulder trend, it’s hard not to conjure up the iconic image of Jennifer Beals in Flashdance from the ’80’s. At the time, that mere hint of skin was considered daring, dangerous, sexy and demure…not bad for something so easy to wear! The one shoulder trend is still popular and sexy; especially when it’s a one shoulder party dress. The key here is to keep it simple, just like Selena Gomez. Avoid cluttering the look with accessories like scarfs and necklaces. Let the shoulder do all the work, which is the beauty of the one shoulder trend: there isn’t much to it, but it sure leaves lots to the imagination 🙂 If you don’t go strapless, be smart about the strap and either use a clear strap (not my first pick, but effective) or a cute bra strap. And keep it casual so you don’t distract from the shoulder!

What’s your take on the off-the-shoulder top? Better left in the 80’s, or a fashion trend to embrace for the summer of 2009?
