Trend Alert: Off the Shoulder

Celebrate the warm season by baring a bit of skin.  What better way to do that than to embrace the latest spring trend: off the shoulder?  This style first made its appearance last year, and now a year later, the look has exploded and it’s everywhere.  I am not sure that the off the shoulder look is for me, but that doesn’t mean I’m not curious.  I have decided to dedicate today’s style guide to the latest craze to see what all of the fuss is about.  One of the things about an off the shoulder outfit is that it’s a bit sexy, but if done right, it can be easy going.  You can wear one anywhere, including the work place.  I know what you’re thinking.  Isn’t this top too suggestive for work?  As long as you cover up your bare shoulders with a blazer, it’ll be appropriate for any occasion.  Personally, I am loving an off the shoulder dress for the weekend.  It has a very bohemian look that I can get behind.  This leads me to a very helpful tip for you.  To me, this trend looks best in a looser silhouette. If you want to a different vibe, make sure you stick to form fitting options for evenings out.  The more I researched this style, the more I loved it.  I highly suggest you check it out.  If you need more inspiration, these three outfits should point you in the right direction.  What do you think?  Will you be trying out this trend for spring?
