I am so glad that spring is finally here and I can start wearing some of the coveted items that I have been eyeing. If you have paid any attention at all to the runways or magazines, then you will know that your shoulders are your most valuable asset this season (1). This flirty and flattering piece shows just the right amount of skin and neatly frames your shoulders with waterfall ruffles, breezy boho embroidery or date-night worthy bardot styles (2). Unlike your other body parts, showing off the shoulders is unexpectedly sexy without seemingly outrageous or unclassy. This elegant way to draw attention to yourself is the perfect way to dive into springs latest and greatest offering (3).
I was really excited to find out that the off-the-shoulder trend is here-to-stay because I am a big fan of this silhouette. I like showing my shoulders because its a little mysterious, romantic and a great way to keep cool when the weather gets too warm. However, many would find that this style can be unflattering because of the billowy structure; we can undoubtedly solve that by tucking the top it into your jeans to give more definition and extend our stature. I prefer high-waisted flare denim as it meshes better with this 70 style top and balances out the proportions. I also love the pale blue because it is the perfect colour for spring and also to transition into beachy weather for the summer.
To balance out this gentle blue palette, I went a little adventurous with my accessories and added a fun peachy feathered clutch with ruby red mules. I always like adding a bit of colour and some great texture to spice up my outfit and give it more character.
So this spring don't be afraid to put on a bold lip and show-off your new best asset- the shoulders!
