Showing one shoulder is a daring move. Get it right and you’re pure Bianca Jagger , commanding the room in a Grecian-style caftan, a French film star bedroom eyes and her lover’s button-down slightly askew. But go wrong? Toga-party town.
But this season, a fresh crop of chic single-side necklines (as seen in more than few spring 2017 shows, including Monse, Rodarte, and Saint Laurent) are bringing the risk-factor way down. Keep scrolling to shop six outfit-making takes on the style that do all the heavy lifting for you—you just need to find the right bra! ( This can help with that. )
Where layering a separate crop top and button-down may be a long, drawn-out struggle, this two-in-one style instantly nails the look—and holds it in place!
