Something I'm curious about one-shoulder tops... is there ever any real preference as to which sholder to show off? Like, is there a such thing as a girl who likes to maybe have a one-shoulder top with the lone strap on a girl's left to show off a tattoo or something on her right shoulder?

i don't think there is really a preference or standard as to which shoulder is revealed when it comes to this style..

I'm sure the thing you mentioned John could be true in some cases but I don't think that girl would NOT buy something because it shows off her other shoulder..

i think the concerns are more about how the strap or neckline is cut.. whether the fabric is loose or tight.. whether the girl can wear a bra if she needs it..
those are just more practical things to think of..

some of the necklines will certainly be more flattering than others..
you don't want it too look like the fabric cutting across your chest is too close to your throat so it is cutting across your neck..

there seem to be 3 main themes with this look though...
the first is more like a toga..
the second is more fluttery/70s/bohemian Farrah Fawcett I think..
and the third is more along the lines of a structured strapless dress with a sleeve/strap on one side...

The one-shoulder was absolutely everywhere for spring/summer and is going absolutely nowhere for autumn/winter - it's beautiful and i'm glad it's staying

The one-shoulder look was hot at the Academy Awards this past Sunday. While I didn't see it, I did see the "Fashion Police" review of Academy Award fashion. One segment highlighted on the one-shoulder dresses. The one-shoulder look is exceptional for dresses. It can also be a romantic look for casual fashions. This is an ultra-feminine look that would appeal to all or most body types to perfection.
