This Once Passé Trend Is Now a Fashion-Person Staple

There was once a time when off-the-shoulder and one-shoulder tops reigned supreme in the shirting realm. Then, like many items as they travel throughout the trend cycle, they sort of fizzled out in recent seasons in favor of trendy mock-neck styles and the sort. But asymmetrical tops, in particular, are pushing their way towards the sartorial forefront again, and the chicest fashion girls are taking note. There's nothing passé about this neckline right now.

Yep, when I scrolled through my Saved photos on IG to get some cool outfit ideas, I was delighted to uncover that quite a hefty chunk featured one-shoulder tops styled in a plethora of modern ways. I’m talking neutral bodysuits teamed with wide-leg trousers and cardigans, statement tops with jeans and bold accessories, and everything in-between.

To showcase this newer fashion-person staple even more, I rounded up some of the said ensembles I'm into featuring the asymmetric shirt front and center. And naturally, I also shopped out each inspired look as well if you're looking to jump back on this trend wagon again.
