This Spring / Summer season, I have realized that off-the-shoulder tops are taking over the fashion scene. It is becoming a fashion staple for any women that loves fast-fashion or wants to change up their look in a subtle way.
I have tried on a few different styles from various brands, but have yet to commit. I love the look and definitely think it can be dressed up or down depending on how you style it – but it’s important to find a top that is flattering. Admittedly, this style is not made for all body types (i.e broad shoulders, super busty…), but that doesn’t mean you can’t try it out!
This is such a easy and fun piece to mix into your office look. Finding the right fabric and fit is key to pull this off in a more professional setting. Look for pieces that are simple, classy, and more fitted. Stay away from styles that are super flowy or have “winged” sleeves; this can come across as too casual or even sloppy. You can easily pair this style, tucked in, with a pair of high waisted trousers or skirt. Brighter colours and patterns are great! But make sure to balance this with a more neutral bottom – no one wants to be a walking highlighter or clown at the office.
Now THIS is the time to pull out those more relaxed fitted tops. I love a looser top paired with a classic pair of skinny denim. You can easily pull this off with a pair of white sneakers or your favourite summer sandal – making it a staple and one of the most versatile items in your closet this season! If you’re heading out at night, throw on a pair of heels and you’re set.
Plot Twist: an off-the-shoulder dress!
Whether you’re on vacation, or just need something new for that classic summer BBQ – this look is not only comfortable, but super trendy. It’s honestly such an effortless outfit, you don’t even need to think twice! My advice, find a dress that is flattering and FITS! One of my biggest pet peeves is seeing people wear pieces just for the sake of the trend and not thinking about what looks good on their body type. Not everyone is the same, and that’s what makes us so unique! Embrace you are, and dress for that – your confidence and style will shine through 🙂
