The one item your closet needs this summer? A white off-the-shoulder top!

Any avid trend followers or celebrity style stalkers have probably seen off-the-shoulder tops popping up everywhere—and for good reason! These versatile and easy-to-wear tops have made their way into nearly every trend report for summer 2017. With so many great spins on the style, an off-the-shoulder top is the perfect summer shirt. Now it’s time for this trendsetter to make its way to your closet!

With so many different styles of off-the-shoulder tops, finding the perfect one for you may seem overwhelming. But never fear. Sticking to these three simple guidelines can help ensure you find a piece you’ll love all summer long!

  1. Find a top that stays put.

Test your top by raising your arms straight out from your sides. If the top slips up your shoulders, pass on it. Look for tops with thick elastic bands around the collar-line.

  1. Stick to the basics.

By picking a basic color or print, you’ll increase your shirt’s versatility. Consider your new shirt a staple to last you season after season.

  1. Keep it easy, breezy.

Look for a lightweight, flowy fabric that doesn’t wrinkle. You’ll be thankful!

For an easy go-to summer look, this Fashionista paired her white off-the-shoulder top with fun floral shorts. Her chestnut leather flats give a feminine air to the outfit.  Simple jewelry like fun hoops and a matching choker add a bit of flair without detracting from the top’s statement neckline. A tote bag full of picnic supplies and a beach blanket completes the look.
