Hey there fashionistas! Summer is coming soon, so you know I’ll let you know about the hottest trends for summer 2017. Once a week, I’ll be releasing a new trend so that by the time June rolls around, you’re all geared up and fly for the summer. Ladies, this summer, we are showing our shoulders!
*tape rewinds* “shoulders…”? Yes.
Off-the-shoulder is in style and it’s coming in every form: off the shoulder tops, dresses, jumpsuits, and gowns.
Unlike the other pieces I’ve written about before, I feel like his style looks best dressed up!
According to fashionmagazine.com, off-the-shoulder clothing has been on and off since the 1800’s when French designer Charles Frederick Worth designed his gowns with this unique style. However, the style became truly popular in the 60’s. Stars like Brigitte Bardot first wore studding off the shoulder tops and it became an on and off fashion throughout the decades. Now it’s back and it looks amazing!
The thing I like the most about off the shoulder outfits is how it accentuates your collar bone; women are given great definition and it highlights their amazing features.Secondly, the tops are usually lose and flowy, making it great to pair with a skinny bottom.
Off-the-shoulder pieces look great in stripes- I’m seeing that pattern most. The other day I got an off-the-shoulder dress from Ross (don’t sleep on Ross) that was blue and white pin-strip and was a little above the knee. Talk about pairing this with my mustard heels in the summer for a standout fashion statement!
Off-the-shoulder dresses look great with pop-color chunky heels.
Off-the-shoulder tops look great with fitted flare jeans to give Farrah Fawcet vibes, or skinny jeans with peep-toe heels.
Depending on the swag of the piece, off the shoulder jumpsuits can look great with simple sandals or peep toe heels
I am absolutely loving off-the-shoulder outfits for the summer and cannot wait to add to my closet. Let us know your favorite off-the-shoulder styles and how you rock it!
