Every spring/end of winter off the shoulder tops have a moment. I can see why, they’re very sexy, but subtly so, and who doesn’t love to feel the sun on their shoulders?? I totally appreciate the look, and was tempted recently by the striped version of the organic by John Patrick OTS top above (which is also beautiful styled ON the shoulders BTW), but who am I kidding?? How does a top without shoulders fit into my lifestyle? And anyway, my shoulders get very cold in the air conditioning, so I’d have to wear something over it whenever I’m inside, which completely defeats the purpose.
An off the shoulder top would be a wonderful beach vacation sort of piece, if you’re going to be outside all the time, and lounging about, and I sort of like the look of an off the shoulder sweater, like this one by Callahan, with a cami or tank top underneath, or layered over a slip dress, for cooler summer nights. I really love this James Perse off the shoulder dress…
What do you think of off the shoulder tops? Do you wear them? Do you like the look?
