The Necklace That Makes Last Year's Off-the-Shoulder Tops Still Look Relevant

Last year, an off-the-shoulder top was almost always accompanied by a choker necklace—whether it was a velvet ribbon or tied leather. However, Bardot tops now have a new partner in crime. The off-the-shoulder trend might have died down slightly, but we are still taken by the shoulder-exposing blouses from Caroline Constas, A Piece Apart and Zimmermann. When it comes to styling these necklines, the Instagram crowd is pairing them with simple pendants on fine chains—whether that's an Alighieri medallion or a single gold shell. The key is to opt for discreet, minimal necklaces (and especially if you wear just one or five). Keep scrolling to see how influencers have been wearing this double act, and then shop our edit of the best duos below.
