It's finally warming up, even though we have ups and downs, cloudy with heat, sun with cold... Easiest way to be ready for these changes is wearing an off the shoulder top with a thin trench. And we do not only see this trend on tops, we will also see it in dresses, that can be easily combined for street style!
If you need inspiration to how to wear this off the shoulder trend, keep reading! =)
Let's face. In spring and summer, girls like to show off some skin. But instead of falling to the feared short-short-short-shorts that actually show some butt flesh, we bring you a much more wearable trend, easy to pull off and pretty much appropriate for everyone!
The off the shoulder top, or boat neck trend is back on business! You know how I'm a huge fan of the 90's fashion, and the easiest way to catch all the trends back there is going through all the tv shows of the decade. Like Friends or Saved by the Bell, the boat neck trend was on top of them all!
The bare shoulders looks is not new, was a big hit last summer and seems like it's hitting even harder this Spring/Summer 2015. And talking about old times.. Kelly Kapowsi seemed to live in this kind of neck tops! Take a look
One day I'd like to write an entire post about her as an style icon. I really like the youth that she breathes out in her outfits. But anyway.
I personally loved this trend so much because of what the it implies: boho, effortless, feminine, chic, casual... I never really thought of the shoulders as a part of the body to show off, but now that I think about it, it's kind of the sexiest. Doesn't actually show, just suggest, like some mystery.
Crop tops are always on the top 5 of Spring/Summer trends, and every year seems to get more and more heavy. So much that it's mixing up with some other trends like Boat neck. Showing off shoulders and some belly with some high waisted pants or skirt. Easy way to put up with high temperatures.
I can't imagine a better way to pull off the bare shoulders than on a cute dress. Either floral printed, boho white, chic black or navy stripes.. All of it works! I can't wait to find me a dress like this, Perfect for a beach evening, office hours or a walk around the city. Let me know if you see any!
But let's admit it.. When you think of summer and warm weather, the first color that comes to your head is pure white. Relaxed, cool, lady like, edgy and very chic, easy to combine as if with simple jeans or with a cocktail long skirt.
Match it with some jewellery like some thin necklaces or boho pieces.
As a tip, you can let you hair down slightly wavy or pull it up in a messy pony tail/bun like if you just came from the beach.
Retail chains are actually throwing at us this trend, and soon enough I'll post about where to get the best pieces in the market! So stay tunned =D
Hope you liked it! I loved preparing it because it's a trend for spring/summer that I actually like a lot. Let me know what you think!
