Ahhh this off the shoulder style right now is my new addiction. I love how this style is so comfortable to wear yet still looks so cute. It s definitely one of the biggest trends this season and I don’t see it going away anytime soon. Even though the look is cute and stylish there are a few tricks to pulling this look off… so lets get on top of how to wear it so that you can enjoy this seasons hottest styles.
I dot know about you but every time I lift my arms, the dress or shirt raises up to the top of my shoulders. if you’ve tried wearing a off the shoulder style you know what I mean. After doing my research I figured out a few tips to help you rock this style
Strapless: ALWAYS wear a strapless bra with this any off the shoulder top or dress, most of the time the strapless bra will actually help the body of the item stay in place. A BIG NO NO … don’t show your straps of the bra when trying to pull off a cold shoulder!
Length and Fabric: Make sure the length of the dress is long enough, in case it DOES slip up. A lot of the time there is a top version available so you could just buy the top version so that you don’t need to worry about the length. The fabric is also important, you don't want it to be TOO silky smooth. And patterns are great, there are so many different floras, stops and prints. Don't be afraid to branch out.
This one is a big deciding factor for me, If the arms are separated it allows you to move your arms freely without worrying about the entire dress or top slipping up. The tighter the arm holes the better so that they can stay in place!.
Ruffle: The top portion of these dresses and tops is very important. I love the look of the ones with a ruffle on the top. This helps disguise what’s really going on underneath and I find it looks more summery with the flowing ruffles.
Take matters into your own hands: For those of you who don't like the arm holes in these styles here is a little tutorial video I found about creating your own. This video is so simple, all you need is 4 safety pins and 2 elastic bands, watch the video here to get the full step by step!!!
Now that you have all these trick on wearing this popular style, here are some of my favourite off the shoulder items that are a must have for this season.
