Shoulders look lovely at all ages, and if you choose to show yours to the world, this season offers lots of opportunities. Off-the-shoulder tops and sundresses are plentiful, and there’s a mini-revival of “cold shoulder” tops: the ones that have actual straps, with an opening for your shoulder to peep through. It is most definitely the season for airy clothing, in the Northern Hemi. We’ve got 90+ degrees coming every day till October.
As always, the first tip is: wear shoulder-baring tops if you like them. They’re not advisable in most offices for work-wear, and maybe not for church. But for your own time, you can rock this look at any age. Choose among the many offerings, including the inspirational women from Visible Monday, below.
Always room in my closet for a breezy top:
Ani of Fleurani went with the “cold shoulder” look in this pretty and feminine embroidered top. The open shoulders look perfect with her whimsical hair and summer hat. And a field of flowers, that always works, eh?:
Bogi of Red Reticule chose a more formal look with this gorgeous off-the-shoulder dress. The ruffled sleeves add personality and her refined accessories dress it up for a fabulous date look. And the shoes, don’t forget the shoes:
Glenda of So What To Twenty rocks a strapless peplum top in a gorgeous print. She stays cool and shares her beautiful shoulders. Glenda knows how to do a full-on summer look. And you must read her post this week; she has such wisdom about recent tragic events:
Suzanne of Ask Suzanne Bell does a dressy version of the cold-shoulder blouse in versatile black, elevated with a wrap skirt and wedge heels. I’d wear this to a creative workplace, or out to lunch or for date night:
Candace of The Beauty Beau is so chic in this on/off-the-shoulder denim top. Keeping it modern and sleek with white flare jeans and simple jewelry.
