This Is How to Wear an Off-the-Shoulder Top in 2018

Bella Hadid is practically the definition of a trendsetter in this day and age. On an almost-daily basis, the 21-year-old model steps out in the freshest brands and styles, and many fashion girls follow. While in Milan this week, Hadid did it again, but this time it was in the form of a trend that people have been saying is on its way out: an off-the-shoulder top.

Off-the-shoulder tops and dresses have been everywhere for the past few years, and just as with any trend that gets really big really quickly, fatigue can set in. But leave it to new It-girl, Australia-based label I.Am.Gia to provide a remedy. Hadid chose the brand's Naomi Top, a corset-style cap-sleeve shirt that can be worn on or off the shoulders. Hadid tucked the pretty top into a pair of black vintage-inspired jeans and added a pair of black ankle boots as the finishing touch.

By choosing a flattering top with unique details and pairing it with classic pieces, Hadid proved that the off-the-shoulder trend is still alive and well in 2018. Oh, and did we mention that the I.Am.Gia shirt is a mere $72?
