Time To Bare Our Shoulders

1017-13-AdjThe off-the-shoulder look is so in right now!
I used to own an off-the-shoulder top in the mid 90’s; it was white with purple floral print, then my friend Joyce, who’s a well known singer in Taiwan, gave me her white ruffled bare-shoulder top; and then I had two.

What I (and perhaps many others) love about this look is, it has a bohemian feel to it; seductive and sexy without being over the top. Let’s face it; unlike our cleavage or legs, the shoulders must be our more comfortable body part to show off! The style is shape and age friendly, so, what’s not to love?!

The comeback of the off-the-shoulder trend is more creative – with the dramatic large sleeves which edge up the whole look. It’s more fun – the cut-out design creates a sneak peek to the shoulders.
So, time to bring out our bare-shoulder tops and dresses and give them a well deserved chance to shine, or simply pick one from the market; the shop or your favourite online store.
VoilΓ ! One of the hottest trend this summer is sorted!
