How petite woman wear off the shoulder tops
I have covered a few hot trends for this year. ONE BLACK LACE-UP BODYSUIT THREE STYLES, which show you how to use this $17 top to create very different styles. HOW TO LOOK TOUGH YET FEMININE AFTER 40S, what about HOW TO PULL OFF THE ULTIMATE COOL GIRL LOOK, of course DENIM EVERYTHING BUT NOT JEANS COOL NEW WAYS TO WEAR DENIM, and the so hot trend 2016 SPRING TREND REPORT LACE-UP EVERYTHING…Ok. I think I have made my point here. I have written many useful tips for us petite, over 40s or should I say cute and mature women. In fact, just about anybody that wants to keep up with the trends but still keep original can get some great useful info from my blog. And of course, there’s still a lot more to come, so please read on. You’ll be happy you did!
Today, I am going to talk about another hot trend, the off the shoulder. The way to wear the off the shoulder trend for this season is to look for pastel colors. These soft and happy hues are just right for a fresh and cute spring style.
I bought this topshop off the shoulder top at Nordstrom. I simply fell in love with the color and the simplicity of this piece. To me that combination spells versatile and means I can use it to pair with many different outfits.
With a hint of the Bohemian about this trend, the current off-the-shoulder is one of the hottest looks this season and there’s no reason why everyone shouldn’t join in. But off-the-shoulder tops lead the eye to the shoulders, sometimes making your shoulder seem even wider than they naturally are. And that is a bad news for a petite woman. Because we will look wider and bigger. Big shoulders are great if you’re a football player but not so much for a fashion blogger!
So how to look good with an off the shoulder top ?
1. Avoid any extra attention by pairing one of these tops with a bottom that takes center stage in the conversation. Just like the skirt I paired with. Of course you can wear this top with jeans or shorts, but with a pencil skirt, this is the perfect mix between sexy and sophisticated.
2. Pick materials that drape in a flattering way so they will not create more volume on your chest and waist area.
3. Pick one with a built in waist line to create the balanced proportion like these ones I wore last summer.
Below are some suggestions to keep under your $100 budget for your shopping pleasure.
Off the shoulder dresses are the perfect choice for warm summer evenings. Whether you’re on holiday or just relaxing after work, a dress such as those below are great for giving you that flirty evening feel which you crave!
Of course here are some suggestions for you as well and yes they are all under $100.
