The Cold Shoulder

If you’ve followed any fashion bloggers, own a Pinterest account, or even go on social media – you know off-the-shoulder tops are totally in style at the moment. Everyone styles them differently, but this is how I like to do it.

Off-the-shoulder tops definitely make a statement.  If you want to turn heads, it’s important to do it the right way. For me, it’s all about balance.  Showing just the right amount of skin is essential to mastering this look. You’re showing some skin up top, so maybe take the conservative route on your bottom half (aka no booty shorts please). Even though shoulders aren’t necessarily considered super “sexy”, it’s still bare skin. It’s a more subtle form of sexy.

I like to pair my off-the-shoulder tops with basics. A great pair of jeans, simple heels, and some pretty and girly jewelry. If your top has a lot of detail, let it speak for itself.

This top is from Banana Republic. The tie details on the sleeves make it so cute!  I paired it with my ALL TIME FAVORITE DENIM.  These are Gap’s Selvedge Denim. Look out for an upcoming post on my favorite denim.

Simple accessories make this outfit look polished and classic. My watch is Michael Kors, the bracelet is Kate Spade, and the earrings are Banana Republic. The perfect shoe for this look was the Stacy Heel by Steve Madden, so I went with that in nude.

Hope you all enjoyed this post. This has got to be one of my favorite outfits of the summer.

See you soon,
