Style 3-Play: Off-the-Shoulder Top Look One

Today I’m presenting another perfect example of “never say never” when it comes to fashion and personal style, dear readers!!  😉

You might remember from my “Toeing the Line” and “Shouldering On” posts that I find off-the-shoulder tops really lovely in theory…but rather difficult to wear IRL.  How do you keep them properly in place when you’re doing anything more challenging than collecting compliments??

Still, a declaration like that certainly wasn’t enough to stop me from trying one on if it happened to catch my eye; and sure enough…this striped, long-sleeved tee surprised me by being both chic and exceptionally cooperative!!

The takeaway here??  When you see a trend you love, but think it isn’t for you – try and try again!!  There’s bound to be a version out there that “works” the way you want it to.  I ended up being so thrilled with my foray into off-shoulder territory that I’ve lined up another couple of combos for later this week!!  See you again on Wednesday for Look Two!!

    Wearing a long vest over a off shoulder top is a great idea! It looks very stylish.
