Bare Shoulders: Summer’s Hottest Trend

Off-shoulder tops and dresses have sprouted everywhere in recent years, and countless fashion girls have sported this chic silhouette. Moreover, slip dresses have become fashionable now more than ever, with their skinny spaghetti straps and loose fit. It seems like baring one’s shoulders has become the current it fashion statement.

Let us show you how to bare those shoulders in classy taste and style. This is a trend perfect for this unbearable summer heat!

Romantic Off-shoulder

Beat the heat with airy tops and dresses that will leave you feeling cool all over. Loose and slightly billowy off-shoulder pieces give off a romantic vibe, which is absolutely perfect for the summer season. These off-shoulder pieces don’t cling too closely to the body, so they’re made for casual yet chic ensemble. If you’re wearing this silhouette as a top, pair with more structured pieces for a stylish juxtaposition.

Fancy this silhouette in a dress? Strap on a pair of sandals for a laid-back and effortless look. This is a sure way to look très chic on your next holiday.

Cropped Off-shoulder Top

This silhouette mixes two hot trends in one – the cropped top and the off-shoulder silhouette. Since you’re already showing off a part of your décolletage with the off-shoulder, keep things absolutely classy by showing just a sliver of midriff. This is a versatile piece that you can pair with any bottom. Try pairing your cropped off-shoulder top with a skirt for a feminine look or your favorite denim piece for a no-fail combination.

Halter Silhouette

Halter tops and dresses with skinny straps have shot up in popularity. These pieces have become so coveted due to the fact that they’re so easy to dress up and down! Go for halter styles that cover the neckline, so this silhouette can really show off one’s shoulders to the maximum. Some halter tops and dresses feature a bare back, so make sure to balance this out with longer hemline (for dresses) or a pair of trousers (for tops).

Slip Dresses

Slip dresses offer an undeniable ease without compromising a luxe feel. This silhouette has transformed from an evening staple to a day-to-night piece. With skinny spaghetti straps, slip dresses make a perfect summer must-have to show off those shoulders. Glam up in heat-appropriate style with strappy heeled sandals, or keep things relaxed by pairing your slip dress with a pair of sneakers.

Shoulder cut-outs

If you want to show some skin but still want to keep an air of mystery, go for a silhouette that features shoulder cut-outs. This silhouette is all about a peek-a-boo of skin that is shown through feminine cut-outs on the shoulders. This style is quite versatile as you can pair it with most bottoms. Opt for a dress with cut-outs for a feminine take, while pairing it with jeans will add a touch of masculinity to balance the look. This is a surely tasteful way to show off a bit of skin without revealing too much, perfect for that reserved summer look.
