Shoulder details are so big right now. Everywhere I look, there is an off the shoulder dress or a top with cutout shoulders. Everything looks so cute but since the pieces are pretty trendy, it can be hard for me to spend a lot on them. Who knows if I’ll even like that off the shoulder dress in a few months? I love inexpensive fashion companies for this very reason. It’s easy to test out a trend to see how much I’ll wear it before really investing in it. I recently picked out an inexpensive off the shoulder top and cold shoulder dress to test the waters of the shoulder details trend.
I think off the shoulder pieces are so fun. They just look so cute and I love how they’ll be nice and cool during the summer (a must for Arizona). I thought this ivory top with its blue floral print was really fun for spring and I knew it would pair well with denim shorts for a great casual look.
Just in case I didn’t love the off the shoulder top, I picked out a cold shoulder dress. I still got the shoulder focus but without all the fuss an off the shoulder top can bring. I love cotton shift dresses for warmer weather and I really liked this striped white and blue fabric.
I definitely have to pay attention to measurements when buying dresses. Half the time, what looks like a dress on the model will be more like a top on me because I’m pretty tall. This dress was just long enough to fit into the dress category and I think it will look super cute while running around town but it would also be really fun as a coverup at the pool.
I really liked this blue floral off the shoulder top although it is a little more high maintenance than tops with sleeves. There is a lot of adjusting involved and it’s not easy to lift my arms above my head but I think it’s really fun and I’m so glad I got it. I have a slight off the shoulder addiction now, I can’t wait to get something else!
I also love the ruffles on my cold shoulder dress. They make the dress look a little more frilly and cute and I like how the straps on this dress make it a little more wearable than a total off the shoulder piece.
The easy shape of this dress makes it so comfortable and I love the tiny stripes and ruffles. I added some colorful accessories and bright white wedges for a pretty spring look.
