Need some inspo? Read on for some easy-to-apply styling tips!
Think outside the box: For most body types the flowy, hip-length, boxier cut is a winner. No doubt you’re questioning how a boxy top can flatter, but TRUST—bare shoulders actually balance out the shape. Try pairing with a skinny pant or fitted bermuda short for an instant flattering silhouette. Plus: breeze from day to night by a simple switch of the heel!
Crop to it: If you got it flaunt it! But if you’re feeling fierce with a hint of fear, try testing the crop top with high-waist bottoms like a pencil skirt or stretchy, flared pants.
Within arm’s reach: There’s no need to sacrifice movement for style. Regardless if the top is a simple shoulder cutout, strapless, or accompanied by a spaghetti strap, off-the-shoulder is a stylish way to show off a bit of skin. To avoid the occasional interference opt for an elastic open-shoulder sleeve, giving you a completely bare neckline with the joy of mobility.
Modern mood: Not feelin’ the boho vibe or the ’90s cutout throwback? Switch it up with a bold stripe or sophisticated gingham pattern or even play around with the idea of a silkier chiffon or knit fabric choice.
Make it werk: Simply add a structured blazer or lightweight jacket and off to work you go!
Last, but not least: Always appear effortless! Make the look work for you and not the other way around.
