The asymmetric shoulder is sweeping gracefully on to the spring/summer catwalks, bringing a touch of effortless femininity.
Also known as the one-shoulder, it will have you rivalling top fashionistas - shoulders have had such an emphasis on the catwalks, so this is the chicest sleeve to emerge this season.
This look is subtly sexy and yet reveals just the right amount of flesh, so it can be incorporated into either a casual or a dressy outfit with ease.
Designers are using the asymmetric shoulder, particularly on dresses, to feminise their looks for the season. Most alluring of all are floor-length gowns, many of which can be incredibly enchanting for an evening look.
Gucci's bold blue flowing creation has something very magical about it, and would ooze glamour on a summer's evening.
A floor-length asymmetric shoulder gown is a perfect way to look effortlessly stunning for a chic event.
Alternatively, smarter knee-length dresses can be worn into the office as well as for an evening out.
Aquascutum's petrol blue design has a belted waist for emphasis and an erratic panelled shoulder pattern, which follows the silhouette of the dress down to the hem. Of course, your knee-length version does not need to be so over the top if it is for day wear.
Meanwhile, a fun option channels inspiration from a Versace dress with a 1950s prom feel but at a mini length.
This style is perfect for a night out but can also be dressed down with a short cardigan, tights and flats for the day.
There is no standard format among these gowns and any length and detailing - such as frills, feathers and bows - is acceptable. The only consensus is rich colour, be it bold or neutral. Most designers are using the asymmetric shoulder in a dress. However, high street versions have a wide selection of tops, too, which are well worth seeking out.
Finally, when accessorising your asymmetric dress or top, you can never go wrong with multiple bangles and statement earrings.
But remember not to wear a necklace, as it will detract from the show-stopping design.
