Off-the-shoulder tops were all the rage in the 90s, but this summer they’re back and better than ever. Whether you’re headed to the lake or dressing for a night out, here are three things to keep in mind before you take the plunge.
1. One Shoulder or Two
Laid back and casual, off-the-shoulder tops look best with elastic necks that create a loose, flowy fit. Balance out your outfit with fitted skinny jeans or cutoff shorts, or dress it up with a spandex midi skirt.
Style Tip: If you’re looking for a more modest way to try the trend, style the top so only one shoulder is exposed.
2. Layered Accessories
Since off-the-shoulder tops radiate a cool, relaxed vibe, finish your look with boho-inspired accessories. Think tassel details, bright colors and bangle bracelets.
3. Don’t Go Unsupported
With bare shoulders, it’s difficult to avoid wearing a strapless bra. Make sure your outfit is as comfortable as possible by investing in a balconette style that fits well and stays put.
Style Tip: If strapless normally isn’t your style, choose a convertible bra that you can wear with anything. Remove the straps for an off-the-shoulder shirt, and then reattach them for the rest of your wardrobe.
With an off-the-shoulder style, it’s never been easier to show off your sun-kissed summer glow.
