As we’re approaching the colder months, it’s not uncommon to see girls wearing trendy sweaters with a cap sleeve that can range from short to long. It’s no secret though that off-the-shoulder designs can be hard to pull off, especially when you’re not confident with your shoulders. If you don’t want to hide your shoulders and want to experiment with living a little dangerously, keep reading for some tips on rocking the trend in style!
What do you wear with an off-the-shoulder sweater? This wardrobe staple is a must-have in every girl’s closet! Some people think that they can’t get away with wearing an off-the-shoulder sweater because of their arms. But honestly, if you are worried about it showing too much arm then wear a tank top underneath.
You can buy this sweater in tons of different colors, so try to match the color of your pants or skirt to what color you chose for your sweater. Choose a bright sweater to wear with dark pants and a belt and a nice pair of heels. This will make you look like you are ready to go out on the town.
If you are going for the casual look, then wear a denim skirt or shorts with your off-the-shoulder sweater.
How To Pull Off The Trend:
1. Get the right fit. Obviously, this is a trend that will require a style that’s very versatile. You wouldn’t want to go out in a sweater that doesn’t fit you well, because it would draw too much attention to your shoulders.
2. Find the right sweater. This is key! That’s why we’ll start with “finding” the right sweater before we get into styling and pulling off the look!
3. Try different looks. Don’t be afraid to go a little crazy! There are so many ways that you can wear this trend. You could always pair an off-the-shoulder sweater with a coordinating skirt, cardigan, or sweatpants!
4. Don’t make it the focus of your outfit. It’s okay to have accessories that are statement pieces that draw attention to your shoulders! Try mixing in studs, statement cuff bracelets, or statement necklaces just for a twist!
5. Let your hair do the talking for you.
How do you wear an off-the-shoulder sweater? Are you one of those women who loves to show off her collarbone and therefore choose your top around your neck? Or are you more comfortable in a shirt top? Well, you’ll find that since this season’s trends are all about asymmetrical tops, there is no right or wrong way to wear it.
If you choose to only show off just the collar bone area, I would suggest you opt for a higher neckline like a turtle neck or half shirt. Another option is to wear your top with a very dark pair of jeans or even shorts. This will ensure that your outfit stands out as opposed to wearing your off-the-shoulder top with shorts that contain frills and laces, which may make it hard to see your true figure.
If you like to show off your whole shoulder and by extension your whole upper torso, then you may wear your out top with high waist flares or pencil skirts. But be careful as this look can sometimes come across as tacky especially when it is worn in the wrong way.
It is important to note too that wearing an off-the-shoulder top does not mean you have to wear a thin fabric. I for one love masses of material that flow and give me the feeling of being hugged in all the right places. The negative about this however is that it often makes me look broader than I am. To counteract this I wear my top with a belt or with a pair of jeans that matches my top well, so as not to draw the eye away from my frame.
You can also add a choker around your neck to change the way you look. This will work perfectly with blouses and sweaters. If you want to take your off-the-shoulder look one step further then you can wear a leather jacket or overcoat that is the same color as your top. You can also make it more daring and draw attention by wearing high heels for this look.
There is nothing wrong with wearing your top in the opposite direction as well. If you are a person who prefers high-waisted jeans and tops, then try wearing your off-the-shoulder top with high-waisted suits and skirts.
Here is a look at a number of ways to wear an off-the-shoulder sweater. For any of these looks, remember to make sure that your outfit makes sense and your clothes match each other. Make sure they are not too baggy or too tight and that you have matched the colours correctly.
Off-the-shoulder top, pants and sandals:
This is the easiest look for the office. The top is paired with a pair of slim fit pants and heels. This look can only be worn for office wear as it does not go with shorts, skirts or pencil skirts. Wearing this look at the weekend is a good idea too as the top will be easy to pair with jeans.
If you want something that is easier and more casual for the weekend, then choose to wear shorts from the top of your bottom half. Remember to keep your accessories in line with the rest of your outfit so as not to clash and draw attention away from it. You can also try wearing a pair of ankle boots for a more striking look.
Off-the-shoulder top, high waisted jeans and sandals:
This is the easiest of all looks for the office and is comprised of high waisted jeans and sandals. The problem with this look is that it can cause some people to draw attention to your legs rather than your torso.
This fashion trend has gone from being a side note to being a statement piece. Everyone from celebrities to your local barista is showing off their shoulders.
