Two of the season's biggest clavicle-baring trends have got us in arms (pun intended!) to figure out which one we like best. If you're having the same trouble choosing, we pit off-shouldered and one-shouldered versions of three looks against each other and let you decide. The face-off begins in 3, 2, 1...
The Look: Suiting Fabric

Crisp, timeless fabrics like poplin and linen are key. Host and blogger Kim Jones keeps things vacay-ready by donning pompom-fringed cropped flares, flat sandals, and a woven basket tote with her bell-sleeved off-shoulder top. Dutch model and blogger Linda Tol, on the other hand, reappropriates the classic white shirt into a chic one-shouldered version, tucking it into smart trousers. That's two ways to go!
The Look: Bodycon

If you got it, flaunt it! Take a cue from Shini Park of Park & Cube and match your ribbed, off-shouldered dress with a choker made of the same fabric. Vanessa Hong of The Haute Pursuit ups the ante by stepping out in something figure-slimming and skin-colored and one-shouldered. Now that's how you do sexy.
The Look: Layering

Yes, layering totally applies here, too. We love how stylist Liz Uy slides a sleeveless turtleneck under an otherwise shoulder-exposing metallic belted top, but we're just as enamored with TV host Mari Jasmine's one-armed look. Tip: Pick pieces in contrasting colors and finishes for a textured feel!
Now it's time for you to decide. Which trend are you more eager to try?
