So – I can’t possibly be the only one who thinks those “off the shoulder” tops and dresses we’re still seeing everywhere are flattering in theory, but waaay difficult to wear…can I??
Just to be clear, I’m not referring to this striped button-front blouse that I’m debuting today – which is the perfect cheat because of those skinny straps – but rather to the kind of top that has elastic around the shoulders to keep it in place…elastic that pops up over your shoulders the second you try to lift a Starbucks cup to your lips (for example). 😜
There’s no getting around the fact that what’s pretty in pictures doesn’t always work very well in real life. After all, who wants to be seen constantly tugging their neckline back into place?? It brings to mind the zillions of ill-advised brides who spend their wedding days yanking up strapless gowns for fear of a wardrobe malfunction; not only is it horribly distracting…but it’s the exact opposite of flattering.
Do these sartorial challenges have you simply opting out of all things off-the-shoulder and strapless, dear readers?? Or have you discovered the secret to keeping such slippery silhouettes in place?? As always, I’m looking forward to hearing what you have to say!!
