Dare-to-Bare

Dare to Bare

The off -shoulder trend is making its way back to the runways and into our closets. See how you can incorporate this sexy trend into your summer wardrobe.


Sweater in the Summer

If baring both your shoulders makes your cringe, then just bare one! Wearing a loose sweater and showing one shoulder creates a relaxed look with just a touch of sexy. Pair the top with a tight fitting skirt to contrast with the slouchy sweater–this creates a balanced silhouette. Thin strap stilettos add a touch of sophistication to counter the casualness of the top. A single off shoulder may be too reminiscent of the loud 80s, so make sure your color palette is classy with neutral shades. Small details like sunglasses or a clutch can be your pop of color.

Work Wear

For casual Fridays at work, test drive the off shoulder trend by wearing a top that’s more of a boat neck. This means that the sleeves are not dropped as low as most off shoulder tops. Pair it with cigarette pants and pointed toe pumps for a corporate touch. But don’t be afraid to do eye catching prints, it is Friday after all.

Don a Dress

Play down the glamour by adding more youthful details such as hat and a full skirt cut. Transition your look for a nighttime by adding jewelry and fancy clutch. The bare shoulders make the perfect backdrop for a statement necklace to standout. Finish the look with nude heels--- they go well with everything!
