One of the biggest trends for spring that is totally off the hook, are off the shoulder tops and tees. A major throw back to the 80’s and 90’s (but in a good way); these trendy tops are sure to find their way in your spring wardrobe. Not only are they fun and flirty to wear, but their cut out design adds an element of interest (not to mention keeps you cool in warmer weather). Read on to learn all about their unique design, and how you can style one for any occasion!
What is it?
An off the shoulder top is basically a knit long sleeved or short sleeved tee that has a fun, playful peek-a-boo feature. The cut out design occurs right in the shoulder area. So, your top resembles a tank, but has a little extra coverage over the arm from a fluttery half sleeve, or a full length sleeve. These tops tend to be loose fitting, and come in long and short hemlines. They are light weight, soft, and ultra-comfortable.
So, now that you know what one of these tops is, here are some styling suggestions!
Consider wearing an off the shoulder tee in a bright color. Think mint green, butter yellow, petal pink, or electric blue for spring. Slide on a pair of white cut off shorts or a pair of fitted, white straight leg jeans that can be cuffed. Step into a pretty and posh pair of brown leather wedges, or wear your favorite shiny flip flops for more casual outings.
If you want to dress up your off the shoulder top, pick one out in a neutral tone like cream or white. Tuck it into a flowing maxi or midi skirt and pair your favorite sandals or peep toe booties with it. You can also tuck one into a pair of printed capris and add a fun clutch designed in a bold tone to off-set your ensemble. Be sure to bring a fitted cut off blazer for evening affairs when the spring air tends to get a bit cooler.
If you want to wear one while simply lounging around the house on a lazy Sunday afternoon, an off the shoulder top looks awesome with a pair of light weight yoga pants or a relaxed fit pair of black shorts. Shoes are totally optional and stick to minimal accessories, like a silver pendant or a wrist full of shiny bangles.
Be sure to put an off the shoulder top on your must-buy list this spring to ensure you are ready to look fabulous in warmer temperatures, and for any and every occasion!
