The Off-the-Shoulder is amongst my favourite trends for this summer, even though "summer" has vanished away from the UK and it feels like the beginning of Autumn already. Thankfully, a summer holiday on my calendar is quickly approaching and a style I'm going with is baring those shoulders, after all this season it’s all about getting rid of your sleeves.
Off-the-shoulder is a mix of sexy, glam, with a pinch of sweetness. Greatly inspired by the Eighties (which at the time was actually inspired by the Fifties) and very Disney princess like, this neckline makes an strong comeback in a slightly different version. Leaving aside the ladylike style it was previously known for, it now focuses on exposing more skin with a very low neckline, making it a flawless sexy summer style. When worn with a good strapless bra, a quick buffing of bronzer on the décolletage, as well as the right accessories, you will be ready in no time for that summer evening outing or simply a beach-side day. Here’s my take on the trend.
|Off-The-Shoulder Dress: Asos - Fringed Shoulder Bag: Primark |
Platform Wedges: Renata Mello - Layered Necklace: Happiness Boutique*
Happiness Boutique has kindly sent me this beautiful rose gold necklace. Check out their huge range of accessories here; they offer free shipping as well as a customer reward program! Of course I couldn't not add it to this look, I mean how cute does the key and the heart look together. Oh, and what’s better than one trend? That’s right, 3 in one look. You will remember when I spoke here about the layered necklace craze we are having, and apart from the off-the-shoulder, fringe is yet another trend that makes a comeback from a different decade; the Seventies this time. Funny how everything is coming back! Paired this super cute fringed bag (which was only £8 compared to the one I originally wanted, see here) with a few modern items to offset any potential rodeo vibes and I love the end result. What do you think?
