One shoulder tops and dresses are a thing that I actually didn't think I would ever like.
Or ever like again. To me, they were a typical early 2000's thing along with Von Dutch caps, Juicy Couture tracksuits and short denim skirts. But then, again, Rosie Assoulin comes along and challenges all my small minded fashion prejudices. Her SS16 collection was full of one shoulder tops and dresses and nothing there reminds me of the styles I wore as a 14-year-old. A whole new perspective. And though many designers feature one shoulder dresses or tops in their summer collections (often in a shirt fabric or look), it's somehow slim pickings on the high street. I found two lovely but very simple tops at H&M but that is pretty much it. Come on Zara, you're usually much quicker at picking up trends.
When I was wearing the dress I am wearing in the cover picture by the way, my dad asked me if my dress was broken and where the other half was. So I guess be prepared for concerned questions and the odd joke.
