Shoulders, shoulders, everywhere.
You can’t turn around without seeing some body wearing an off the shoulder top or dress. Have you noticed? Do you like it? Will you wear it? It’s a trend that came in last year and appears to have staying power. You can make it as casual or dressy as you want and find a cute look for all occasions.
Sometimes you just don’t know where to start so I’ve rounded up a few that caught my eye and you might want to explore for yourself.
1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8 // 9
1 ~ I love this chiffon off the shoulder version and with a tie at the neck. It is so delicate and feminine looking. The soft pink color is sweet and the fabric is flowy.
2 ~ This one incorporates both the off the shoulder and bell sleeves that are ever so popular. It has ties at the shoulder so it would stay in place and has the most casual feel of all the ones here. It would be super cute with jeans or cut offs.
3 ~ These off the shoulder dresses are so cute and party perfect. They are begging to be worn to a spring or summer wedding.
4 ~ More bell sleeves and off the shoulder in a more polished option that can still be casual or lends itself to be dressed up for a night out.
5 ~ I think the lace texture and stitching on this darling top make is so versatile. Great with jeans but pair it with slacks or maybe a straight skirt and heels.
6 ~ A larger ruffle and straight silhouette make this dress more sleek and refined and a gorgeous option for a dressier occasion.
7 ~ Looking to add floral and flowy sleeves? Here’s a perfect pick.
8 ~ This little cutie is available in gingham or crisp blue and white stripes. It’s one of my favorites.
9 ~ Eyelet adds beautiful detail and makes this ruffled off the shoulder top perfect for pairing with jeans, cut off jean shorts or colored denim. Completely adorable.
Have you tried the off the shoulder trend? If not, are you thinking about it?

I'm very picky when it comes to showing off my shoulders. The peek-a-book shoulders are more my style. Mostly because I hate wearing a strapless bra!
Agreed. Strapless bras are not fun!!! 😉

I love OTS tops, I prefer the style that has straps too, much easier to wear. Great picks!
Pumps and Push-Ups
Hi Brooke! You are so right. I only have one and it has straps. Thank you!
Laura Bambrick says
The off the shoulder trend is so cute! I love the ruffles that many of the tops have too! Great picks!
Thanks Laura! I agree, the ruffles are a really cute addition.
I think they look fun, but I need someone to tell me what kind of bra to wear. Strapless bras are not comfortable and I don't want to spend the whole day pulling it up into place. What am I missing? 😉
I should have talked about strapless bras too…BUT, I don't have a favorite either. You are right, they are uncomfortable. Oh the things we do for fashion.

I love this look! Number 4 is my favorite.
I like that one too, Tara?
A Gal Named Al says
Ooh number 6 is super cute! I'm so stuck in my own ways that I very rarely try the trends. I need someone to shop for me and be my stylist!
I volunteer your to be your personal shopper 😉 You'd look darling in any one of these!!!

Girl, you know how I love off the shoulder, in fact, tomorrow I have another off the shoulder top to share. I'm crazy for it except one big thing: I cannot wear them for long if they pop up on my arms or feel constricted, ha ha! Best left for date nights. But yes, I pretty much want them all, lol
HAHA! That's pretty much how I feel too. Love them, but for short periods of time. 🙂

I love an off the shoulder dress or top ! I've ordered a few from Nordstroms and anxious to wear them once the weather warms up here in Nebraska 🙂
