I’m really hoping that I don’t suddenly wake up one day this summer and decide I don’t like off-the-shoulder tops anymore because I’ve accumulated quite the collection as of late. Proof: I bought three (see here, here, and here) just over this last weekend. Seriously. And if my Caroline Constas top wasn’t sold out everywhere, I would probably buy it in two more colors.
While I’ve always been a fan of bare shoulders, it seems that they’ve become more popular than ever lately. They’re everywhere – and I, for one, couldn’t be happier about it. (My love for the off-the-shoulder look doesn’t stop at tops either. I’m equally obsessed with it in dresses – especially this one and this one – and swimsuits.) There’s just something so breezy and effortless about off-the-shoulder silhouettes. They’re sort of the epitome of warm-weather-chic, if you ask me. Which is why you need one…or three…or seven (Whatever. Who’s counting?).
Here, a list of my current favorites to get you set for the season:
1. For budget-friendly… This punchy-pink one is cute, and I love the simplicity of this light blue one – and both are under $75! This Free People one ($78) is also a great steal. (For a little extra moolah, you can grab this striped one!)
4. For that little something extra… I wasn’t sure I would like the little pearls on this one but after seeing it in person, I realized the pearls add that special touch that makes this top work from day-to-night.
7. For the splurge… Head straight to Johanna Oritz. The Colombian-born designer knows a thing or two about bare shoulders. I’m totally in love with her best-selling Tulum top, and I wouldn’t mind adding this spicy red dress of hers to my closet either.
