CATWALK TREND DECODED
One (shoulder) love in 2017
By Maybelle Morgan, 3 January 2017
Kick off 2017 right and get to know one of the new season's future obsessions, the asymmetric shoulder. All about proving that the charm's in the (bare) arm, see how David Koma did subtle-cool, Bella Hadid went full throttle and ASOS Insider Shope made it your new weekend must.
Cool doesn’t even cut it, as the girls at David Koma SS17 took to the catwalk in hybrid chic-meets-goth get-ups. Sleek bardot tops were revamped with one-shoulder double straps and matched with leather straight-leg trousers and boots. Major goals.
Warning: not one for dinner out with the girls, but Bella gave us serious inspo with her Christina Aguilera circa Dirrty outfit. A statement one-shoulder top with side cut-outs were paired with lace-up everywhere trousers and pointed black heels. So noughties.
Try it on
Proof that asymmetric is so right for your day thing as well? ASOS Insider Shope bringing the cool with a knitted one-shoulder longline top. Take notes and keep the rest of the outfit plain. Case in point? Shope’s pinstripe trousers and fresh white sneaks.
