Keeping It Off The Shoulder

I’m so in love with off the shoulder pieces that I used to force my t-shirts to fit the aesthetic by cutting them up during my High School years. Even back then, if I could make most of my clothes off the shoulder, I would certainly do so. I tend to stray away from styles that are over popularized but this is one of the few that I certainly can’t let go of. My love for this aesthetic will continue whether it’s loved by many or not.

I created a 90 second video that summarizes the steps taken to achieve this make up look. Feel free to take a peek.

I actually purchased this top last summer and totally forgot about it. It’s literally perfect for an evening event. I placed the criss-cross feature in the front instead of the back ( where it originally belonged) because it’s much more complimentary to the top. It’s always great to mix things up to amp up your look.

I love adding pops of color while wearing black so I paired this with red Calvin Klein shorts, Gwen Stefani heels and a Kate Spade bag.
