The Juan Carlos Obando pieces are beautiful, I love the silhouette.

I find the one shoulder look to be extremely beautiful on a woman.

Great to see all of these. I'm a one shoulder kind of girl.

I'll be honest with you. I've never hated one-shoulder tops. What is most appealing about one-shoulder tops is the romantic appeal to them. Remove a shoulder from a top or dress, and prepare to enjoy something appealing and flirty for the warm seasons. If you have appealing shoulders, this would be a great way to show off a flirty and fun side of you. For a romantic twist, a lady could probably wear a traditional bra with a bra strap showing. No one would ever attempt this. So the next best thing is to get a strapless bra.

The kinds of one-shoulder (asymmetrical) tops I've seen usually ranged from flirty tops to even something more appropriate for nightclubs. Funny enough, one girl wore a one-shoulder top to school that had its own collar kind of tacked-on. I prefer one-shoulder tops that have an even flow. My favorite one-shoulder tops or dresses from Post #1 include that gray dress from BCBG Max Azria, both Juan Carlos Obando dresses, and especially the stunning silver dress from Douglas Hannant + Erin Fetherston. I'm a bit neutral on the silver and black dress from the Jason Wu + Nicole Miller. I guess my least favorite one is the white dress from Abaeté. The one-shoulder look isn't completely clean for me with that dress. I prefer a smoothly-styled one-shoulder design. Same would go if I saw something like a spaghetti-strap tank top that had only one strap. You have to have a consistent flow to a one-shoulder design to look great. All or most of the ones in this thread have that needed flow to look amazing.

Personally I like Juan Carlos Obando's and Sari Gueron's more formal pieces a lot though my favorite of the bunch is the Nicole Miller dress. So sassy, girly and adorable I would totally wear it! What I like most about the one shoulder dresses is that it's such a beautiful way to showcase your shoulders. I always feel very feminine whenever I wear one (I should add that I already own this Kate Moss for Topshop dress from her first collection which is now hugely popular. I wonder if it has anything to do with this trend btw )

i really enjoy how Hervé Léger did the one-shoulder this season..

he played with it and tried to strap it differently.
