The Off-the-Shoulder Dress is off the chain this Spring and Summer. Fun, flirty, extremely flattering, and totally “one-and-done,” warm weather calls – no – begs (!) for a go-to piece like this. To crack open a can of all-natural awesomeness this Summer, all you really need is just one of these dresses, a fab casual shoe and a shoulder-dusting earring. And, now is the time to grab this piece, honey, because one month from now, every off-the-shoulder dress you were considering will absolutely be gone. Word.
How do I know?? Because Claire Waight Keller sent 7 off-the-shoulder looks down the runway for the Spring 2016 collection. And a gazillion other designers followed and we even saw off-the-shoulder on Fall 2016 runway. That means from New York to LA, the fashionable set will be grabbing anything off-the-shoulder they can get their hands on. And, hey! It’s actually warm enough to bust out some of these looks now here in the South — not true of climes north of here. But that won’t stop the retail whirl on these pieces.
The hottest color going in the OTS game is def bright orangey red, like this beautiful one from Tularose and this one from Veronica Beard. These from Topshop, Mango and Madewell (30% off with code NOJOKE!) are ah-mazing for the price. If you are on fleek and way into striped poplin this Spring, take a look at these amazing options from Zara, MDS Stripes (swoon!), and Pixie Market. Pixie Market also has this one that is a pretty solid all-around option as well as this one from Club Monaco. Also, check out this one from Michael Kors that seems like a pretty solid choice.
If you have some special event this spring or summer, like a wedding or a graduation, etc., check out these indulgences from Johanna Ortiz (my personal favorite), Temperly London, and Michael Kors Collection that are sure to stop the show.
However you like it, girl, you just gotta get in the game. Trust me on this one.
