Designers are giving us the cold shoulder this season with tops and dresses featuring just one shoulder and perhaps a sleeve for good measure.
The fluid nature of the look is best achieved using soft satins and silks and so lends itself more to evening than daywear.
Team tops with simple skirts or linen trousers - the bold style needs little embellishment. And when it comes to pattern - less is more.
Some of the best styles come in the season's acid colours which are ideal for showing off tanned shoulders - well, one of them anyway.
Key to this look is the right underwear. A strapless or multi-way bra is essential - bra straps will simply spoil the line of this statement look.
