When I first started to notice the off shoulder trend, I was in dilemma about whether I would be able to embrace it or not. For sure I loved the way it looked on others, but I was not sure if I could pull it off. I was concerned because it felt a little under draped up there. It took me weeks together to figure out right off-shoulder top for my body type and comfort.

Set your shoulders free

Off Shoulder Tops - Namarat - Bangalore based Indian Fashion Blogger
Off-shoulder dresses or tops is the perfect choice for a summer’s day. It gives such a perfect balance between sexy and sophisticated. This summer is all about the off-shoulder look. Off-shoulders can be either in tops or in dresses. It seems the exposed shoulders are the latest way to show some skin. And guess what unlike abs, shoulders always look good and you can skip the gym for a day or two.

Pair it with a maxi skirt

For a sweltering summer day, we can always choose pastel shades to make it look pleasant. I have combined my pink maxi skirt with a white off shoulder crop top for a chic and stylish look. Just an add-on to the look is my favourite sunglasses. Bear with me for wearing same aviators in different shades all the time.


The layered off shoulder top

A layered off the shoulder top gives you a gorgeous feminine look which is perfect for comfortable and stylish spring/summer wear. I have paired maroon layered off shoulder crop top with blue A-line skirt. You could play around with prints and patterns, pair contrasting colours to create a unique look.


Wear it with your flared jeans

I have noticed one funny thing about trends. Trends have a habit of popping up as soon as we have forgotten that they ever existed. Oh yes, I am talking about a pair of the 90’s fit and flare jeans. Your off shoulder top could be teamed up with this wardrobe essential as well. A choker with multi color beads  goes really well with the multi-colored printed top.

So, ladies, this summer let your shoulders carefree. Oh hell, flaunt them!
