Wearing Off-the-Shoulder Looks

Off-the-shoulder outfits have become a really big trend every spring and summer for the last several seasons and maybe even for the last couple of years. With an off the shoulder top you get to show off some skin without showing off too much. With an off-the-shoulder item even though it is made to be worn off-the-shoulder you don't have to necessarily wear it off the shoulder. You can wear it pulled up on-your shoulder and that helps to create a different look.

Wearing an off-the-shoulder look is also a great way to show off that new tan that you've been working so hard on (whether by laying out in the sun at the beach, or on vacation or if you paid for it and came from a spray can - no one needs to know).

All people will notice is your sun kissed skin in your off-the-shoulder top, blouse or dress. An off-the-shoulder piece also shows off your collarbone. Another benefit of wearing an off-the shoulder look is depending on the off-the-shoulder item it can look really great when layered with jewelry like necklaces and chokers.

With off-the-shoulder tops, blouses and dresses you can find them made in different fabrics, material, cut, and colors. You can find a plain off-the-shoulder blouse, top or dress that is just one color or you can find a look with ruffles, a floral look, a multi-colored look, geometric shapes and so on. The possibilities are endless when it comes to finding and selecting an off-the-shoulder piece to wear.

When wearing an off-the-shoulder look like a top or blouse you can dress it up or down. Depending on the off-the-shoulder top or blouse you can dress it up by wearing slacks, or trousers or a skirt. You can dress it down with anything denim or any casual looking bottom. Depending on the look you're going for you can decide if you want to do heels with the look, or flats, or sandals, slides, mules or sneakers/trainers. The same goes with an off-the-shoulder dress. Since it is one look you can decide if you want to make it look dressy or casual by what you wear on your feet (heels, flats, slides, mules, loafers, sneakers/trainers etc).

So since it is officially summer now in the Northern Hemisphere I thought I'd put together some off-the-shoulder looks that are worth trying out if you're out shopping and looking for some off-the-shoulder looks to add to your wardrobe.
