From denim flares to peasant blouses to off shoulder tops, everything that once sartorially defined the 70’s has resurfaced. This time around, the silhouettes have sleeker fits and fresher shades, but they’re just as fabulous!
If you love to wear off shoulder tops and dresses, consider yourself on-trend. And, if you’re willing to give the look a try, counter the Boho aesthetic with a cool pair of distressed boyfriend jeans, cool culottes, or a black leather pencil skirt for a modern-retro look.
Off shoulder tops and dresses surfaced as one of the biggest trends from the early 2016 runways. Paul & Joe, Peter Pilotto, Chloe, Michael Kors, Francesca Liberatore, Mara Hoffman, Coach, Alice and Olivia – every designer featured the look for their new collection, making off-shoulder the next big thing.
Perhaps the most attractive part of the off shoulder tops style is that it exposes the less predictable gorgeous parts of the body, like the neck, shoulder, collarbone and top of the back. Off-the-shoulder tops and dresses sometimes have the added advantage of arm coverage for a little extra insulation, so they don’t seem as exposed as you’d think – and they’re more covered than a strapless top. Shoulders are prone to look good no matter how you plan to show them off, so it’s hard to lose with this look.
Some of our favorite celebs are already sporting off-shoulder looks with great enthusiasm.
