Off-the-shoulder styles have returned in full force this summer. We’ve rounded-up nine of the best looks to love as the mercury rises
Words Joy Montgomery
Off-the-shoulder tops were the insouciant, warm weather look of 2016 and, yes that’s right, they’re back for a second round this year. A popular look on the high street, they have been churned out in all manner of styles and fabrics. Gingham – this season’s favourite fabric trend – is a popular look of choice. We love Uterque’s red gingham shirt, which will go perfectly with this season’s high waist mom jeans and heeled mules.
Alternatively, if you find the off-the-shoulder trend a little too ‘boho’ for your taste, then opt for a non-elasticated style. Warehouse’s boatneck top will offer a minimalist crispness to any outfit, while still delivering the cheeky flash of décolletage that the cold shoulder trend offers. Wear with gold hoops, navy tailored culottes and chunky sandals for a date night-ready cool. Or, if you’re worried about accidental flashing (yes, we’ve all been there), then head over to Mango or & Other Stories. We love the delicate shoulder straps details on their off-the-shoulder tops – slightly more practical yet just as chic.
