There comes a point in every trend's life when it must decide: Should I stay or should I go? The off shoulder top, which has been trending for a couple of seasons now, is one of them. A fave of 60s icon Brigitte Bardot, it's sexy without being too sexy, and is universally flattering. The thought of it going out of style - gah! We're not ready!!
Well, we can all keep breathing easy, as according to our Style Bible survey of designer labels' Resort 2016 lookbooks: it's here to stay. Yay! Here's how you'll be wearing them through the end of 2015:
On a sweet dress, but with edgy shoes.
Jimmy Choo's founder (she's not with them anymore) ironically suggests keeping it sweet and dainty.
Ovoid off shoulders? Why not!
Zac by Zac Posen
Fearless forecast: We'll continue to see more of the style at formal events.
Cool girls will wear them with flared trousers and Chucks.
Oscar de la Renta
In true dela Renta style, embellishments are always welcome.
This enveloping cut will always scream class.
Because everything looks good in shades of grey and ruffles (the next big trend!) are love.
Riccardo Tisci made one by draping around a corset. Groundbreaking.
A mid-length dress, with creepers and folksy jewelry? This one's for the fashion girl.
