It’s MAY!!!! My favorite month of the year! Weather is starting to get warmer, flowers are blooming and it’s my birthday month! It is also the month that summer fashion really starts to make its debut. What summer fashion trend is ready to take the spotlight? Off the shoulder tops! This trend has been circling the scene since early spring but I feel like now is it’s time to shine because…
- Its almost summer and this is the perfect summer look
- It is so flattering on your neckline! Show off those shoulders girls!
I am especially in love with this petal pink number that I snagged for my trip to Ireland. The sleeves have the perfect amount of flutter. The length is shorter without being cropped which was a perfect balance to the flutter sleeve. And the fabric…super impressed. For a fast fashion item, this top was a thicker crepe material that didn’t wrinkle, was not see through and had the perfect amount of drape. Want to try this look but nervous about how to wear it? Here’s a tip. Most of these tops are a little bit more billowy. For a more classic look pair an off the shoulder top with a slimmer bottom like a skinny jean, jegging or pencil skirt. If you want to try a more boho vibe, try pairing with your favorite pair of denim flares. Also, if your neck feels a little naked, add some jewels. Because this neckline is square in shape, try a longer pendant style necklace to draw the eye down.
I paired this sweet top with some white denim and my new favorite shoes…mules. What is not to like about them? The stacked heel is oh so comfy and the straps dip down lower than my ankle helping to elongate my leg…which as a shorty I really love (and need.) So sophisticated, mules are the new “it’ thing.
Here are my go to “cold shoulder” tops and my fave mules. You need these in your life!
More about Ireland to come…stay tuned!
