Unique Off-Shoulder Styles For Every Season
September 4, 2015 by Nayri Gregor
There are one too many reasons to adore unique off shoulder styles like tops and dresses, but in the Summertime I particularly love how they protect against tan lines. You know what I’m talking about, you’re out and about in a regular tank all day and you get back, look in the mirror and there it is. Two ugly tan lines revealing how pale you were before heading out. So you spend the rest of your weeks tending to your uneven shoulders by covering them up or staying out of the cuter clothes in your closet so that no one notices. A big fat ew and heck no to that. I prefer to stay cooler than ice cold in my off shoulder awesomeness. I’m sure you do too.
Summer may be coming to an end but unique off shoulder styles are here to stay. These are a few of my favorite pieces you can wear all year long, whether the weather warms up or cools down:
The Little Black Dress
Bardot neckline body-con dress ($279.00) Everyone needs an LBD so why not jazz it up with a little exposure up top and a form fitting style to compliment your figure. Wear it with heels or flats to a casual dinner party, and you’ve got yourself a snazzy little number that you can wear all year long.
The Two Piece
Noa Tropical Off-Shoulder Skater Co-Ord Set ($26.00) Some days it’s just nice to not have to think about what to wear – with what- and throw on a matchy-matchy emsemble like this one. The tropical print co-op set is great for Spring and Summer wear but if you’d like to extend them through the Fall and Winter, the a-line skirt lends itself perfectly for tights and a knit top look.
Off the Runway
La Petite Robe di Chiara Boni Jersey Jumpsuit ($695.00) Off-shoulder jumpsuits are quite the rarity around here, but when they work. They.Work! And when you find one, get it. Just remember to let me know about it too. Talk about an entire outfit in one piece that takes the thinking out of dressing up. Add heels to this beautiful sexy thang and you’ve got yourself a trafficstopper outfit.
The Classic White Tunic
Satin Poplin Off-Shoulder Tunic ($295.00) Ladies, ladies, now what would we do without the classic “I can wear this everyday” tunic? But you probably already have one of those. So upgrade your traditional tunic with this off-the-shoulder shirt that can be worn as a dress too. I mean, for all intension purposes, you can wear this tunic to hide a few pounds after the holidays, during your pregnancy, as a bathing suit coverup, with slacks, jeans, and so on and so on- Seriously though, what can’t you it with?
Shoulder Baring Knit Top
Apricot Off the Shoulder Knit Sweater ($22.33) Cut outs for winter wear? Expect your guy to appreciate the skintimate sweetness of this beautifully captivating knit top. Just enough to keep you warm while still looking stylish, we might as well call it business on the bottom and party at the top. Right?
That Crochet Overlay
LA Hearts Crochet Overlay Off-The-Shoulder Top ($34.95) Check it out. What’s neat about this style is the longer sleeves, the crop top on the inside and the fine detailing at the waist. It’s ready to wear either dressed up with heels and a skirt, or down with denim bottoms and booties.
