Everyone this season seems to be pushing down their sleeves in favor of an ever-so-subtle flash of shoulder. The trend started on the fall runways, and now has found new life in the summer’s best tops.

Scroll below for 13 off-the-shoulder tops that’ll get you in the summer mood — choker optional, of course.
