STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Keepin' it Loose

STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Keepin' it Loose

As I am sure everyone has noticed, a huge trend this summer has been off-the-shoulder tops. It seems like every brand, store and designer has made some version of this top. Whether it be Brandy Melville, Urban Outfitters or Tory Burch; this top is killing it. This style can be found in the form of shirts, dresses and rompers of any color, silhouette or pattern.

When I first think of an off-the-shoulder top, my mind tends to imagine a boho style, but recently with the explosion of popularity in this style, this trend can take any form, from boho to edgy to preppy. The versatility of this detail is what makes it so popular. It is loose and comfortable, but also transforms a simple top into something a little more interesting. The off-shoulder look is “sexy without being obvious” and “chic without being attention-grabbing” according to Glamour Magazine. They said it perfectly, this look shows off the collar bone in a subtle way that will catch the attention of any one. It is really simple to style this look, just add jean shorts or pants and jewelry to fit your style. 

This Fashionista specifically chose this white top from Forever 21 and paired it with some simple jeans and killer shoes. The black skinny jeans allow for the look to take a more edgy turn, along with adding a feminine touch with the blue lace up shoes. This Fashionista knows how to take an outfit from a simple white and black combo to the next level.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: “I like wearing off the shoulder shirts during the summer because they show off whatever bronze I get from the sun and they also compliment my collar bones.”
