Style Summer Outfits

Off the Shoulder Top

I describe my style as classic and tend to purchase timeless pieces. However, I also love a good trend and will add a style of the moment if it catches my eye. Currently, I am obsessing over the off the shoulder top. I never thought this was a trend I would wear because it reminded me of this…

This is my "Makeup Pretty Barbie" from childhood. Good thing I did not end up as a hair dresser!

But, when I tried on an off the shoulder top, my perspective changed immediately and I knew this trend was for me. There is something super feminine about showing off shoulders and I think anyone can pull off this trend.

With all the different sleeve lengths, colors, patterns, and fits, there is an off the shoulder top for everyone. I have broad shoulders from years of swimming, so I love the ruffle sleeve on this Madewell off the shoulder top because it helps soften my frame. Also, the white linen material and boxy fit makes it the perfect shirt for summer. I often find myself pairing it with jeans or shorts and layering it with a cardigan on a cool evening.

Every time I see an off the shoulder top now, I want to add it to my closet. As a result, I am seriously considering this one and this.  I have a good feeling the off the shoulder trend is not going away anytime soon, so get shopping and add one or two to your closet!

    This look is amazing! I can relate because I tend to be pretty classic too. I love how your look is still such a classic with the denim and pop of red, but spicing it up a bit with the off the shoulder! It’s perfection!
