STYLE GURU STYLE: Polished Bohemian

June 15th, 2016 at 2:06am

As summer 2016 trends emerge and the weather warms up, the sun isn’t the only thing hot this season. Off-the-shoulder tops are taking the fashion scene by storm, and I am fully on board. Whether it is a full off-the-shoulder top or a cold shoulder version featuring straps, the off-the-shoulder top is the perfect trendy shirt to add to your summer wardrobe this year.

Drawing inspiration from the Alice and Olivia spring 2016 ready-to-wear collection, which is peppered with off-the-shoulder looks, I put together a look with some serious bohemian vibes. The Alice and Olivia collection offers a polished meets boho feel, which I mimicked with my look by pairing a floppy hat and my flowy top with the more polished flats and cuffed denim shorts.

This combination of polished and bohemian makes pulling off this hippie-inspired trend for summer a breeze, and the off-the-shoulder top is incorporated into the look equally as easily.

I know how intimidating a full on Woodstock ready look can be to rock, but with just a few pieces that are on trend like in this outfit, a look can have that free-spirited feel that appeals to so many once summer comes around.

Mixing classic basics like cuffed denim shorts and flats with an off-the-shoulder top can quickly update your existing wardrobe for this season and make the bohemian trend appropriate for a wider range of occasions. So go out and score the perfect shoulder-bearing top because it will with out a doubt be a staple in your wardrobe this summer.
