Just Look Over Your Shoulder Honey!
I think it’s finally safe to say that spring has sprung… well at least it has in TEXAS lol. One of spring and summer’s biggest fashion trends is the off-the-shoulder look. From dresses, tops, to jumpsuits, you’re sure to see a variety of off-the-shoulder options everywhere.
The fun thing about trends is they love to pop back into style just as we’ve dismissed them off as a thing of the past. Baring our shoulders are back, and with the warm weather now in full effect, my go to style lately has been an off-the-shoulder top.
Now the major question everyone has when preparing to wear an off-shoulder top is, “how do I wear it correctly?”
1. Strapless Bra:
This choice is captain obvious – for the off-the-shoulder tops. Look for a seamless push-up bra, or a bandeau-like style, depending on your comfort. The important thing is that you get a strapless bra that really fits you!
2. Adhesive Bras:
If you find yourself an off-the-shoulder top that is airy in the back or even low plunging, you might want to keep your back bare. I recommend you try an adhesive bra, it sticks to your boobs, simultaneously lifting and covering.
3. A Bra Top:
A great alternative for a simple strapless is the bra top. Going with a bra top rather than a strapless can give you more lift and support because of the extra boning. Think of it as a cropped corset.
What do I put on the bottom half of my body when wearing an off-shoulder top?
While you might think wearing an off-the-shoulder top can be a little tricky or limiting, it’s actually quite the opposite and very comfortable. A lot of the styles I own are over-sized which can be worn tucked or un-tucked… giving you more of a variety.
1. Distressed Look:
Pairing your off-the-shoulder top with some rough-edged shorts or distressed jeans is a great way to add texture to your look and funk up your outfit.
2. Dressed up Look:
Pick an off-the-shoulder that is long enough to double as a dress and pair with some wedges, block heels, lace-up sandals, or all the above. In the picture below, I have paired my outfit with wedges and high waisted jeans.
Your options are limitless, have fun when pairing your outfits!
