Spring/ Summer 15 Trend: Off-The-Shoulder

Spring/ Summer 15 Trend: Off-The-Shoulder

| On 04, Nov 2014

‘Off-the-shoulder’, or OTS if you will, might conjure up imagery of Jenny From The Block, Flashdance and early 2000’s teen fashion, but shoulderless fashion 2.0 is chic, grown up and set to be a major trend player this Spring/ Summer. To ensure you are more French Riviera than 80’s disco follow these guidelines for perfecting the cold shoulder.

1. Keep It Bare: Visible underwear is a big no-no, this very much includes clear plastic bra straps. Go Strapless ladies!

2. Symmetry Is Essential To Stay In 2014: Both shoulders must be out unless you are styling your look with a perm and hoop earrings… and attending a costume party.

3. Play With Proportion: OTS can add bulk to the feminine frame if not proportioned properly, so belt it or wear with figure accentuating bottoms such as slim leg pants, or shorts, to balance out the top.

4. Steal From The Boys: His (or yours, it’s the 21st Century!) button down business shirt makes the perfect origami-esque OTS. Unbutton the first and last few buttons, pull over your shoulders and knot or tie the bottom halves together for some serious sartorial cred.

5. Cold Shoulder For All Occasions: There really is a OTS for every dress code, mood and body shape. Go structured for after dark or corporate by adding a blazer. More structured styles compliment an hourglass figure, but are also universally flattering. Wear with a fitted skirt, trousers or denim shorts for everyday casual. Relaxed bohemian styles are perfect for the weekend, holidays and casual attire. Keep it classy by not overloading on boho accessories with an already bohemian outfit.

6. Billowing sleeves for brownie points: A fresh new addition to the OTS is dramatic, billowing sleeves. Adding voluminous sleeves will give you a foot up in style stakes.
