If you have been reading my blog since last spring/summer then you must know of my love affair with the off the shoulder trend. Like I mentioned in my latest style video, the off the shoulder trend is still going strong this year… and I couldn’t be happier!
As I’ve said before, in my opinion off the shoulder is one of the most feminine looks. It’s sensual and classy at the same time. You might have spotted this outfit on my Instagram. Last Friday we had beautiful weather here in San Francisco, which made it possible to rock this top. I know that might not be the case everywhere, but here spring has arrived!
What I love about this top is that it combines a few trends all in one. The exaggerated sleeves and the ruffles are also hot this season. I always prefer ruffles on the bust because they add a little more volume to where I need it most. If you’re a bigger chested gal you might want your ruffles in another place. Ruffles add a ton of volume and are eye catching, so make sure to have them in the right area.
With off the shoulder tops, I usually go for bigger accessories. Statement accessories and bare shoulders are a magic combo. Because this particular top has ruffles on the chest I opted for a minimal necklace but bolder earrings. A statement necklace would’ve clashed with the ruffles. The bigger earrings create a balanced look.
Are you still loving the off the shoulder trend or are you over it?
