Spring Trends. Carrying the Weight of the World on One-Shoulder

January 30, 2008 • Fashion

Marchesa RTW Spring ’08

You don’t have to be a Greek Goddess to pull off the hot look for spring, the one-shoulder or asymmetrical cut. So many designers showed this ultra-feminine cut on the Spring ’08 RTW runway including; Dior, Monique Lhuillier, Marchesa, Michael Kors, Versacae and Givenchy. Since a one-shoulder cut draws attention to the neckline the style should be worn with minimal jewelry, so opt for a killer cuff and earrings , but go sans necklace.

  1. This is interesting, because I normally say that I hate the one-shoulder strap, and under the arm look (reminds me too much of Wilma Flintstone).
    However, I loooove that first dress. The blue dresses are also nice. So, I guess it depends where the strap is, the angle, and if the strap looks like a strap or just an extension of the top.

    Funny! I totally agree with you! The look has grown on me and yes, it does depend where the strap is situated. It also depends on your body type/shape.
