Ready to show a little skin, just in time for summer? The summer’s hottest trend, an off the shoulder top, is fresh, flirty and if done right, can be tailored to any body and any age.
Here are a few tips to master this look at any age.
Keep it Classic
Wondering what to wear your off the shoulder top with? Look no further than your favorite staples to create a chic look that’s easy to put together. Pair it with your favorite jeans, a pencil skirt or a bermuda short to create a summery ensemble. Let your hair down or wear it up—it’s up to you how much shoulder you want to bare.
Get A Little Dressy
Swap your top for an off the shoulder dress on warm summer days. Just like a top, a dress with an elastic neckline can easily be adjusted to show the amount of shoulder you prefer. Play with moving it from a ruffled tank-style to one bare shoulder to a fully bared shoulder to find what works for you. If you’re not quite ready to go full shoulder, donning a lightweight summer vest, a kimono or a jean jacket over the top gives you a layered look while still trying out the style.
Wear it like a white shirt
It’s simple, don’t overthink it! Grab your off the shoulder top, throw on some straight leg jeans and add a half-tuck to keep it simple. A pendant necklace and slide sandals finishes this effortless look that’s perfect for playing it chic this summer.
Stylist Tip: Looking for more coverage or an option that allows for a regular bra? Check out the cold-shoulder style for a more covered-up, yet equally on-trend option!
