One style that has become a huge statement this Summer is the off-the-shoulder trend. Its become, if I may say, possibly the most popular style and highly bought piece of the season. From designer brands like Chloe and Tibi to high-streets retailers such as Boohoo and Topshop, they are all carrying bardot tops and they are selling out like crazy! But why is the off-the-shoulder top the new hottest trend? Its effortlessly chic, feminine and sexy without revealing too much. And, it looks good on every physique! With so many different styles to offer, like this marine striped one I’m wearing from Glamorous, I thought I would put together a few styling tips on how to wear the trend.
Here’s a few short and simple reasons why you should love the Bardot top:
Aside from the fact that the style is very much suited for summer, its shape is flirty and flattering that shows some skin – enough to be sexy, but without overdoing it! The off-the-shoulder top is a wardrobe essential for the warmer months, styles ranging from bohemian with embroidery to prints, color block and even oversized sleeves and romantic ruffles. If its versatility isn’t enough, this silhouette can be worn on a date night in classic shades just as well as casual during the day! With something for everyone, I’m pretty sure that’s why this trend has become so popular.. I mean, bardot tops are now all over Instagram and on every fashionista, and there isn’t a shape, color or style that hasn’t been worn!
Tip: Wear with Denim
If denim looks good with one thing, it’s definitely the bardot top for Summer! Yes, denim goes with various tops and shapes, but the silhouette of something off-the-shoulder just looks so chic and feminine that it’s a nice contrast with the denim. How I love styling this super cute Glamorous striped bardot top is with a pair of distressed denim shorts for a feminine and laid-back look. I’m especially loving the Mom shorts shape, it’s high-waisted and looks really nice with the top tucked in. And I simply cannot get over how cute these shorts look with lip patches – so girly and fun to wear!
Tip: Summer Accessories, Tassels, Jewels and more!
With a piece that can be so simple, such as the bardot top, don’t be afraid to go all out with accessories because the more styled up it is, the more chic and ‘effortless’ it really looks! Although the top and shorts I’m wearing aren’t too simple, I wanted to style the outfit up with fun accessories that would make it even more of a statement. I therefore styled the off-the-shoulder top with a little white Furla bag (and its cute tassel accessory), as well as a pair of shades and some delicate rose gold jewelry from Pandora! A must would also be to wear the look with stylish shoes, so I went for my chic Tory Burch espadrilles to match. I hope that you enjoy this look!
