There are hot looks that stop traffic and cause excessive sweating on the lookers, and then there are the subtle sexy looks, that seems even better by lack of excessiveness or something. When it comes to alluring trends for 2017 Spring/Summer off the shoulder tops is by far a fave one among designers, Instagramers, bloggers, and the regular Nancy’s out there. Myself included.
Firstly there’s something so goddamn hot about exposed naked clavicles and shoulders that it’s no wonder it was such a massive look throughout history. I think it’s so powerful yet understated it beats naked boobs and bums. Right guys? Secondly it’s very easy to style and wear on pretty much all occasions.
Off The Shoulder Tops
While off the shoulder dresses might be pretty close in trendiness it’s the tops of all sorts that run the show. From sporty style to luxe, to chic, and office appropriate or evening designed – off the shoulder tops are to 2017 what sequin crop tops were to 2000s.
Thank God they look good.
How to wear off the shoulder tops?
Takes one regular top then pulls it down the shoulders until exposed clavicle. Off the shoulder tops. #voila
Actually, not exactly. Off the shoulder tops are either t-shirt inspired, strappy, long sleeve, blouse cut, shirts, or super fitted styles in anything from jersey to sequins to cotton to chiffon. Ruffles are really cool.
For a casual look pair off the shoulder tops with jeans, shorts or skirts. I love the white and denim combo way too much for this one. Beach hair, or messy ponytail, big hoops and it’s spring perfection.
For office inspired style pair off the shoulder tops aka shirts or blouses with dressy pants in high waist and cigarette cut, or pencil skirts. Personally I’m not a fan of off the shoulders big tops paired with big dresses cause it creates a chaos in body lines and I’m more into clean cuts these days.
For a sophisticated look pair the most fun flirty off the shoulder tops with cool bottoms and layer on details and accessories.
For a boho chic style wear bright coloured off the shoulder tops (red, yellow, green, or floral print). Pick ruffled designs and pair them with slit skirts or high waist denim shorts. Big hoops and glow bronzed skin will complement your summer holiday glow look.
Off the shoulder tops: shopping faves & deals
Obsession is a fair word to describe this summer trend, as off the shoulder tops are EVERYWHERE these days. Your fave Instagram girl, or #OOTD crush has probably got one, so does your fave designer, shop, boutique, and the chances of you wearing one or shopping for one are major.
Hence my list of the most worth drooling over and splurging tops.
