June 18, 2011

Taylor Swift in Alice & Olivia's Kellye One-Shoulder Dress... Scroll down to find out where to buy it!

One-Shoulder tops and dresses often get a bad rap. With so many styles cut incorrectly, it’s easy to give up on this lopsided trend. That said, I’d like to reverse that thinking — one-shoulder styles done right can be a gorgeous addition to your look. I’ve found 6 one-shoulder tops and dresses that are both sexy and chic. Dress them up with jewelry and heels at night, or tone it down with casual denim during the day. It’s a trend that’s here to stay!

Gryphon brings us a chic little 100% silk blue and white tie-dye print off the shoulder top. Love it styled with white jeans as seen in the photo…
