My favorite shirt style is the off-the-shoulder trend. It just so happens to be one of the most popular clothing trends at the moment. It is so versatile because it’s not just about the straight across style anymore; it comes as asymmetrical, straps, one shoulder showing, and cutouts. It’s been in the top 5 top styles ever since it came to stores this year. This style shows off the arms and shoulders, which is so exciting to me since shoulders and arms always look great, no matter what. You can’t go wrong with the cut out shoulder, as there are so many different places to wear it; the club, work, or even the beach.
Wearing it with disconnected sleeves, longer or short, is such a unique and fun look to pair with denim jeans or shorts. One shoulder showing is super cute as it is remissive yet sensual. But if you want to get straight to the point and show off both shoulders, the straight across look is perfect, not to mention probably the most common of all. Asymmetrical is cool with all of its variety of cuts and shapes. It helps your look become dressier if that’s what you’re going for.
Off-the-shoulder with straps can be dressy on formal dresses for weddings and such. Actually, any of the styles of this trend can be worn dressy. Keeping you cool is what it does mostly, letting air flow to the arms and shoulders, on a hot summer day. There is nothing better to find in a shirt in this humidity. Making them even cooler, is laying long necklaces, high waist pants, and probably the coolest, wearing a see-through of the shoulder as a bathing suit top.
If you don’t have any off-the-shoulder shirts yet, a cute way to make your own would be to let one shoulder fall out while tying the opposite side on the bottom. This is so easy, and you’ll be the most creative, chic girl on the block! One thing that’s not so fun about these shirts, I have to admit, is keeping your shoulders out with your shirt always going back up. Well, another creative idea to keep your look right involves two baby pins and two elastics.
