Shoulder cutouts, completely off-the-shoulder looks, x necklines, and other shoulder-bearing silhouettes are all over the runways this year. As the off-the-shoulder neckline is uber-flattering and unexpectedly unique, you're going to want to fill your closet with these styles.

Scroll below to see three trendy off-the-shoulder looks that you can wear just in time for spring and summer.

Street-Styled Shoulders

Products: Dress, Sunglasses, Backpack, Sneakers

Who says off-the-shoulder has to be girly and romantic? This incorporates the trend with cool, urban pieces. A frayed denim off-the-shoulder dress pairs well with your favorite pair of white sneakers. A holographic backpack and cool mirrored sunnies keep this look fresh and cool.

Crisp Collarbones

Products: Shirt, Skirt, Sunglasses, Clutch, Loafers

Stay crisp and clean in this off-the-shoulder look. The white blouse looks sharp with the structured army green mini-skirt. The white loafers are slightly expensive but they perfectly pick up the white from the blouse and keep you totally on-trend. The cool geometric sunnies and the matching clutch are the perfect finishing touches to your all-neutrals look.

Bardot Bare

Products: Shirt, Skirt, Scarf, Purse, Flats

Make like Brigitte Bardot and bare your shoulders in a striped tight-fitting top. Paired with a billowing a-line midi skirt and lace-up flats (or lace-up heels if you want extra hight to balance the longer length of the skirt), this off the shoulder look has a ton of old world glamour and romance. A satchel pairs well with the classic look. A silk scarf tops off the look and can either be tied around your hair like Bardot, around your neck, or around the strap of the bag.
