Off the Shoulder Tops
We are absolutely positively in love with this blue and white striped long sleeve blouse from Tuckernuck! It is just so classic and gorgeous. Wear it untucked with fitted denim bottoms, or tuck it in and belt it for a more tailored look. Either way, it doesn’t get much more fabulous than this!
If you haven’t tried out an off the shoulder piece yet, this white cropped blouse is a fabulous way to give it a first go. It is classic, simple, and crisp, and will pair with just about any bottom you own in your closet!
If you love a little more flair, we love this ruffled poplin off the shoulder blouse in white! It makes a bit more of a statement while still playing on the classic side of a good white blouse.
This ruffled off the shoulder top in sherbet tones also features a fitted smocked lower bodice, which will give off more of a tailored vibe – perfect for high waisted bottoms, especially those with flared or wide legs!
This teal and white striped blouse with buttons and banded cropped sleeves gives off a fun and youthful vibe that is perfect for shorts, a denim skirt, or jeans.
Dresses and Jumpsuits
This Lilly dress is just beautiful! We love a navy dress for summer, and the floral embroidery adds some pops of color, and the tie waist gives the figure some shape. Wear this dress more casually with flat sandals or slides, or dress it up with your favorite neutral wedges!
Isn’t this floral maxi stunning?!? It is cool and comfy for the hot temperatures in the summer. And we love that the tie waist is detachable, so you can cinch it in or not, depending on your mood.
This beige linen dress with a belted waistline and ruffle detail is so versatile and dreamy! Pair with flat or heeled sandals depending on your occasion and mood!
Jumpsuits are cool, comfy, and functional for summer – plus, you look amazing at the same time! Throw leopard print AND off the shoulder together, and it is a no-brainer for us! Simply put, this jumpsuit is amazing! Added bonus – carry it into fall by wearing the sleeves on your shoulders and throwing on your favorite denim jacket!
Off the Shoulder Swimsuits
An off the shoulder swim suit is the perfect way to look sophisticated and put together while at the pool or beach! A solid color is a perfect way to test the waters on an off the shoulder suit if you are a bit unsure. La Blanca makes GORGEOUS and flattering suits that last years, and this piece is no exception!
If you are nervous about combining loud colors or patterns with the showstopper vibe an off the shoulder suit gives off, consider a simple pattern like this polka dot piece by Tommy Bahama. On the other hand, if you love vibrant color and aren’t afraid of making a big statement, this suit by Trina Turk is absolutely stunning!
