Nothing says summer like bare and beautiful shoulders, and this season you should show your shoulders every chance you get.

As a key trend for summer, off-the-shoulder items are all about showing some skin in a classy way. Shoulders are a naturally slim part of the body, so it suits most body shapes and will work perfectly as a smarter outfit or an off-duty weekend look.

Wear the off-the-shoulder as a bohemian top adorned with embroidery, how about a smart black jumpsuit, or even a soft dress that’s ideal during a hot day, or night.

Add a statement neck piece to dress up your off-the-shoulder item, think colourful stones or impressive metals, and if you have a long neck you can opt for a 90’s inspired choker for a high-fashion finish.

We suggest you avoid this trend if you have wide shoulders, an off-the-shoulder style will make your shoulders look even wider.

Not too keen on showing your shoulders? Then we suggest you try a one-shouldered top or dress. This option is close enough to the off-the-shoulder trend ensuring you still look fashionable this summer season.

      Thank you for your post – there are some divine outfits aren’t there! You won’t find these outfits in SA stores – we source the ensembles online, mainly through Pinterest, Polyvore, Instgram, Tumblr and various trend sites, as we need to appeal to both our SA clients and our overseas clients. Hopefully our tips will give you the inspiration to co-ordinate a similar outfit from your existing wardrobe or find it in a store near you. My DAILY TIP page is posted for the pure pleasure of sharing my knowledge and helping women with their colour and style choices. I trust you continue to enjoy our colour and style tips : )
