Off-the-shoulder silhouettes

If you’re carrying the whole world on your shoulders, there’s no reason to carry your sleeves too.

I’m loving the off-the-shoulder look at the moment…well in honesty I’ve been a fan and wearer for a while, but now the look seems to be everywhere. Stores are flooded with varying takes on the silhouette and there have been plenty of recent red carpet appearances by celebrities in elegant shoulder baring styles.

This is one of those trends that seems to make a comeback every decade – think back to old-school Hollywood glamour, the Flashdance legacy of collarless sweatshirts and the ’90s crop top. With everything from the ’90s in vogue at the moment it’s no surprise this trend is back in force.

It’s easy to see why the off-the-shoulder trend keeps making a recurrence as well. The look is relatively easy to pull off (try pairing an off-the-shoulder top with high-waisted trousers or a midi, or opt for a boho chic dress) and flattering for most body types.

With its popularity peaking at various points over the last century, off-the-shoulder silhouettes have transcended all tiers of formality.Whether it be a ball, a cocktail party or daytime event, an off-the-shoulder dress can help secure wow factor.
