Off the shoulder tops are the new trend for Spring/Summer. They come in many different styles, colours, lengths, and textures! Some have straps and are called “Cold Shoulder” tops while others are completely off the shoulder. These tops can be worn with jeans, skirts, and shorts! They are very versatile and can elevate your look to the next level!
Below are a few tips on how you can rock the off the shoulder to work:
Don’t Go Overboard
Stick with solid tops mixed with multi colored pants, or patterned tops with sleek plain pants. Since this look can be quite bold you don’t want to overdo it by either showing too much skin or pairing it with too many accessories.
Try the Trend in Dress Form
Keep the dresses more loose and flowy and play up the bohemian vibe by pairing with hippie inspired accessories! Feel free to stick with the 60’s vibe by wearing your hair in waves and keeping the makeup light and neutral.
Since the tops show a lot of collarbone, try layering a bunch of dainty necklaces or one big bold collar necklace to help cover up a bit more. Also if you want to change it up a bit, pull your hair up and forget the necklace and wear some statement earrings!
These tops are more work appropriate when worn with slim fitted pants if the top is more voluminous.
If the top is more fitted try balancing it out with looser fit pants. If you go too flowy on the top and bottom you can risk looking too casual. If both parts are slim fitting you might risk looking like you are in a body suit.
Trends are meant to be fun so use this one to play around with your style! You never know what kind of look you will fall in love with!
These tops comes in many different styles from structured, to edgy, to cropped, to bohemian. Also when you go bold with your clothes you can go bolder with your beauty!
