Earlier this year, I got to hang out with some blogger pals and the fashion merchandising ladies at The Paper Store. Despite the impending snow storm, we chatted about spring trends while nibbling macarons.
One of the trends we focused on is the off the shoulder neckline. This style was popular last year, and I am so excited that it’s still in full-force. Shoulders are sexy in a subtle way. A woman’s decolletage is delicate and feminine, and this style neckline shows it off so well.
While I like to wear this style so that it shows off my shoulders, it can easily be worn in a more conservative manner. Simply slide the arm band from around the upper arm to the top of your shoulder. Tah-dah, instant sleeves.
When packing for a quick weekend trip to St. Petersburg, Florida (not Russia!) for a wedding, this was one of the first pieces I grabbed. It was great with sandals for Sunday brunch, but with heels and a swipe of lipstick, it would be a date-night worthy piece. If your work environment skews more casual, just add ballet flats and a denim jacket for an easy outfit. I love a piece that you can reach for no matter the occasion, and this off the shoulder dress will definitely be in heavy rotation.
Shoes: Steve Madden. These are available in a million colors and are so easy to walk in.
