STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Shoulder Showoff

Move over crop tops! This off-the-shoulder trend is making a comeback, and it’s more fun, feminine and flirtier than ever before. Showing off shoulders have been recently turning heads on red carpet events with shoulder-baring gowns donned by celebrities like Rihanna, Reese Witherspoon and Zendaya. It has also made appearances in the resort 2016 collections of Kaufmanfranco and Givenchy, and it’s not hard to see why. This bare shoulder look is so simple; it doesn’t show off too much skin, and it’s just the right amount of sexy for the summer.

First of all, let’s talk about how this Fashionista has all of summer’s essential outfit pieces. A floppy hat to protect your face from the sun, slide sandals to comfortably walk around in and a printed off-the-shoulder romper help her stay on top of summer trends. When I think of this shoulder-revealing trend, I also can’t help but think of the Disney princesses Belle and Aurora and their off-the-shoulder dresses, so I’d like to think of this Fashionista’s outfit also as a modern day twist on a classic fairytale look.

This modern off-the-shoulder look is also great for this season because it’s rising in popularity. Now it’s starting to come in many different style variations as well as prints and colors. Many Fashionistas have been sporting this look through flowy tops, dresses, sweaters and even in this case, a romper. You can never go wrong with this timeless trend even more now that it’s becoming an easy find in many stores!
