How To Perfect The Off-Shoulder Look

How To Perfect The Off-Shoulder Look

This season, the free-spirited peasant girl look is winning all votes. Being carefree, yet glamorous is what defines this off-shoulder look. Whether you are on a holiday or attending an elite event, this one look can totally set your spirit high. The other good news is that the off-shoulder look demands just a few key essentials to bring out the style edge. So get ready to bare that shoulder!

Off shoulder dresses or tops look best if you have a good neckline and shoulders. But, fret not if you don’t fall in this category. Few little tweaks and tricks can help you perfect this look.

Choose the right lingerie

Here, the right support bra plays a crucial role. Though strapless ones are considered the most appropriate, you can pick from other options such as convertibles or the ones with detachable straps. The key is to be comfortable and well supported so that you can confidently carry off this style.


Try skirts or pants

These tops can be paired with almost anything under the sun. For the office, don an off-shoulder top with a pencil skirt or classic pinstripe trousers, and team them with stilettos or block heels. You will undoubtedly leave a mark apart from that presentation.

For a casual look, boyfriend jeans or sexy shorts are just perfect when matched with lacy, crocheted tops that add oodles of feminine charm. Palazzos and skirts also go well, if you are in the mood to walk down the vintage alley.

If you are blessed with broad shoulders and heavy bust, then avoid the front-buttoned and striped tops; instead go for clean, solid colours.


Sport a dress

Short and long maxi dresses with one shoulder or off shoulder are the best picks for summer evenings, romantic dates or night-outs. Here, you can choose either puffed sleeves or straps. And, if your frame isn’t petite then you can throw in a scarf to enhance this look.



The basic rule is to keep it minimal, as heavy neck pieces will draw the attention away from the neckline and outfit. Hence wear simple neck pieces, and if possible avoid them completely. Alternatively, you can go for chunky earrings as they will not steal the attention from that bare neck, which you wish to flaunt. For one shoulder off dress styles, you can add some charm by wearing brooches or adding fabric flowers to the strap.


Go for an updo

Long hair can be styled in an attractive up-do to make the neckline visible. However, if you wish to keep your hair down, then simply sweep them behind your shoulders or on one side of the neck. To complete the look, pick your favourite heels – stilettos, nude heels or ankle boots.


The key is to wear oodles of confidence when wearing this ultra-feminine look. So, go retro chic or floral femme and bare it down with style.
