Our five ways to wear the off the shoulder trend
It might be hard to imagine in this awful cold, but summer will come; maybe not here, but somewhere in a land where the sunshine likes us. The latest trend for this season is a bit bare. Well, not too bare, just your shoulders. So, I've been taking to the weights in the gym to get me shoulder ready.
Celeb land is taking to the trend rather nicely so there's plenty of red carpet inspiration to help you out. And to help you even more, I have selected my five top off the shoulder pieces: from tops to dresses to knitwear, there is something give you food for fashionable thought!
Do you think you'll dare get the shoulders out to try this trend?
Need something to buy now and wear now? Then this lightweight off-the-shoulder knit from Zara is a good choice. It's a great way to try the trend too; it's only €17.95 and comes in three colours. Swap your chunky knit for this new season gem.
Got a wedding abroad this summer? Then take a look at this lovely fitted dress from River Island that comes in two colours. It's also midi (which we heart) and will work with some dainty sandals. If you fancy an off the shoulder top instead, you can have that too.
House of Fraser
Try a monochrome dress with a coloured heel like this one from House of Fraser. The fabric in this printed dress is super soft and of premium quality, hence its higher price tag of €99 (check out the Biba range at House of Fraser for their Spring Summer 2016 collections).
A playsuit is a great thing to pack for your holidays. Pop a denim jacket over this to keep those shoulders warm on cooler nights. Miss Selfridge have some beautiful off-the-shoulder pieces this season too. Just take a look at their fabulous campaign. This playsuit is €70 and will be in store in the next few months.
Let's take two trends, shall we? A little dusky pink, mixed with a one-shouldered-top gives you a very pretty piece from Topshop for the summer season. Try this with white linen trousers in the sunshine.
