Before we start falling over ourselves for fall fashion, it’s only fair to take stock of one of summer’s show-stopping looks – and, to take advantage of the few warm weeks we have left to wear it. Showing more skin in the warmer months is expected, as is getting a shade or two tanner beneath the summer sun. Rather than the midriff tops and tiny shorts to which we’ve become accustomed, this year’s trends leaned towards exposed shoulders. Off-the-shoulder tops are the perfect things to stock your closet with – they are sexy but understated, and can easily transition from day to night.
Not sure where to start ? Here are some of my favorites.
