Believe it or not, style does not come from clothes but rather from what you do with them. Case in point: celebrities wearing a variety of loose-fitting tops off to the side to reveal one shoulder. This is a trick that works no matter what fashion sense you embody, whether its classic and polished like Olivia Palermo, boho like Alessandra Ambrosio or full-on sexy like Chrissy Teigen. As deliberate as this look may be, it gives off the essence of a stylish accident.

Yes, you might get some Flashdance flashbacks since this trend was popular in the '80s, but the idea is to pick a shirt that isn't too baggy. You want to achieve a tease of skin, not an oversized fit you'll be tugging at all day. The best part is you could do this with a top you already own. Draw some inspiration from closeups of stars' versions of the look, below.

Alessandra Amborosio used this styling trick with a paisley blouse from her own clothing line to add playfulness to her music-festival ensemble at Coachella.

Olivia Palermo adapted the look to a nude chiffon piece, fit for her signature lady-like taste.

Chrissy Teigen gave off some "too cool to care" vibes when she wore a baggy sweater with a topknot and matching booties. It definitely worked.

Anne Hathaway stuck to a safe bet with all-black, but a little shoulder kept it far from boring.
