To wit: Jill Stuart showed silk, patterned one-sleeved blouses and dresses, fashion-forward label Tome showcased wrap-style versions, and Cushnie at Ochs featured a killer draped one-shoulder jumpsuit, as well as some tighter variations on gowns and cocktail dresses.
This trend is a chic, easy to transition into spring—one arm in, one arm out—so we’ve rounded up 18 gorgeous one-shoulder dresses you need this season.
