Last week on the blog, we talked about the off the shoulder trend (that is huge for summer) and we shared some of our current favorite pieces. As promised, today we are following up that post and styling off the shoulder looks! In case you missed the blog from last week, click here to check it out!
Styling Off the Shoulder Looks
Let’s start with this fabulous off the shoulder cropped blouse…. Classic, simple, crisp, versatile!
For a casual look, tuck this blouse into a pair of high rise denim shorts, belt it with a belt with a fun print in it (can’t go wrong with leopard), and throw on some of your favorite flat sandals (we are loving this lace up pair – another huge trend for summer!). Add in a bit of color with a pair of drop earrings and a fun bracelet stack (in this case, blue, which we happen to love with leopard print).
For a dressier look, put this blouse with a pair of colorful flowy wide leg pants – this pair from JCrew is SO fun and makes SUCH a statement! Because the pants are such a statement, go simple on accessories. Get some height with a pair of simple slide heeled sandals like these clear ones and go classic on your jewelry with some large hammered gold hoops and a gold bangle stack. Sidenote: these pants would also be fabulous with a white t-shirt and flat sandals!
Off the Shoulder Dress
This beige linen dress with a belted waistline and ruffle detail is so versatile and dreamy! Pair with flat or heeled sandals and even sneakers, depending on your occasion and mood!
It is so fun to wear your sneakers with dresses for a fresh and playful look! If you feel nervous to get outside of your box and try this look, don’t be! Just do it – you will be SO glad you have discovered this fun way to repurpose your sneakers. This is one of our favorite pairs of sneakers currently – love the snakeskin print mixed with the neutral top, and an added pop of color with the yellow on the heel! This pair adds some fun dimension and pattern to an otherwise neutral dress. Add in a headband with a light and airy floral pattern in yellows and blues, some stud earrings, and simple arm candy!
There are so many fun ways to amp this dress up! Start with a fabulous pair of statement earrings like these beaded floral beauties in pink, gold, and taupe. Add in a simple gold chain that sits at the collar bone and a fun bracelet coil. Finish it off with a fun pair of espadrilles. We love this pair with the ankle bow that adds just the right amount of feminine flair around the ankle without competing with the hemline of the dress.
