With a hint of the Bohemian about it, the current off-the-shoulder trend is one of the hottest looks this season and there’s no reason why everyone shouldn’t join in. The off-the-shoulder design can be found in tops or in dresses, making it endlessly versatile and extremely popular.
Off-the-shoulder Dress Outfit Ideas
The off-the-shoulder look also looks fantastic in a dress. Hobo-style designs are hugely popular, especially in the mini-dress, and there’s lots to choose from. A pink mini-dress with elasticated neckline and long sleeves makes a very pretty summer choice, or a little ruffled dress in soft pink or aqua also looks great. White dresses also make an appearance, such as a deceptively plain white boho dress with scooped hemline or a textured frayed fabric dress with plain borders. The lacy look is also a wonderful choice, such as a white fitted summer mini-dress with flared skirt. For a burst of colour, choose a little red ruffle dress or longer retro-style design also in red. Or to ring the changes a little, opt for a sweeping floral maxi dress or petite floral jumpsuit.
Off-the-shoulder Tops Outfit Ideas
There’s a stunning range of off-the-shoulder tops, whether you’re looking for a little crop top, crisp sailor top or a variation on the standard tee. A nautical tee makes a great outfit when teamed with denim cut-offs, whilst a sleek black top worn with a striking black maxi skirt is the height of chic. A figure-hugging stretch top makes the perfect foil for a white denim mini-skirt, or consider a looser design in pale sky-blue to lift a black pencil skirt to new heights. If you prefer a looser look, try an understated chiffon off-the-shoulder top with narrow straps – an ideal companion for black skinny jeans. Or recreate some film star elegance with a shaped black top worn with a stiffly flared white eyelet skirt.
A sloppy-joe style top looks great when worn with denim shorts, and a pin-striped sailor top with flared sleeves looks equally as good with cut-offs. A khaki hobo-style blouse with elasticated neck teams well with faded skinny jeans or pair a shirt-style top with bow detailing and scooped hemline with skinny jeans for a lovely casual outfit. For the completely cool look, wear a lacy top with three-quarter sleeves with dazzling white skinny jeans, or take on the layered look with a scalloped off-the-shoulder crop top worn with a denim mini-skirt.
