The off-the-shoulder top has pretty much unofficially been named the be-all, end-all of trends for the summer season. Sometimes, off-the-shoulder tops do a better job of staying on our shoulders than we like—but lucky for you (and us) our Stylists are pretty savvy.
Keep reading to see how to keep an off-the-shoulder top in place!
Find the Right Size
First things first, it’s all about fit. Your off-the-shoulder top should fit comfortably on your shoulders, but not cut into your arms or loose enough where you’re having to constantly pull it up. If you’re working with a medium to large bust, make sure that your top is a little snug around your bustline (but not too tight!)—your gals will actually help your top stay in place.
How to Make Your Off-The-Shoulder Tops Stay Put
But, even with perfect sizing, you can’t change the laws of gravity and elastic. Here’s a simple hack that will keep your top in place!
- Grab four safety pins and two hair rubber bands.
- Attach two safety pins to either end of a hair rubber band and pin it towards the top of your sleeves, from the front of your shirt to the back. Pin the safety pins where they’ll be concealed, like a seam or elastic.
- Repeat with another band on the other side. When you put your top on, slide the hair rubber bands beneath your armpits to keep your top from moving above your shoulders.
