Keep it 'off' the shoulder!
Plain is boring. At least when it comes to fashion, one has to be bold and experimental enough to try out different styles, or even create some, in order to keep monotony at bay. A very stark example of how you can turn a simple t-shirt or top look into a funky, eye-catching one is by keeping it off-shoulders. This is the look that is ruling the trends in the recent times, and it sure is here to stay! The slouchy wide-neck tops that give that peek-a-boo of your shoulders is extremely sensuous without much of a skin show. All that you need is the right attitude to carry it off!
Extremely comfortable and subtly sexy, an off-shoulder top even paired with regular denims can transform your entire look, and make you stand apart from the crowd. Not only great for casual outings but also for parties and occasions, this style flatters anyone who is creative enough to give it a shot! Even a plain tee can be turned into an off-shoulder one and made much more interesting, to give you a dressy edge over others. Team it with jeans or shorts and sneakers, and you’re on a roll. If you want, you can even grab a tee of yours, and cut carefully around its neck with a pair of sharp scissors, to create a wider neck opening. Now it will hang off the shoulder as you put it on. Even men’s t-shirts can be transformed into a billowy yet feminine off-shoulder top that is very much in vogue these days.
For a more sophisticated, refined look, you can try an off-shoulder t-shirt with a miniskirt and heels for that perfect party attire. An off-shoulder dress also works wonders! The top can also have its share of sequins or other bright, colourful designs that will give it a unique style. With loose off-shoulder tops, skinny jeans are a must, to give your legs a contrasted shape. This style works wonders for evening parties for which you can just pick up a well-fitting bottom wear of any colour and slip into an off-shoulder t-shirt. High heels or boots will make that just perfect for an evening outing. The accessories should also be quite chic and up-to-date as it a fresh and modern style statement. A statement necklace, a pair of hoops or chandelier earrings, something in acrylic here and there, can add a lot to the off-shoulder look.
Off shoulder tops and dresses look good on a variety of body types, that too without giving a feel that you tried too hard. If you’re curvy, go for one that conceals your areas of insecurity and flatters your figure; if you’re on the skinnier side, you might want to flaunt your neckline. They are bound to look good whatever way you wear them, so make sure you at least have an off-shoulder top or dress in your wardrobe!
