Hey beauties and a very happy Monday! I am having some serious holiday blues after an amazing week in Cyprus but the weather in London has been great which makes it a bit easier.

This summer I have been going crazy for off-the-shoulder pieces and this Alexa Chung For AG Jeans dress is one of my best purchases (sold out but ADORE this one from Topshop). The relaxed fit, a romantic wave detail round the neckline and the super light denim fabric makes it a perfect holiday/ festival staple. I don’t know about you guys, but I find showing some shoulder is really attractive and flattering on anyone. Unlike crop tops that require a flat stomach, which I’ll never have as I like pasta too much, or low neck lines that lack daily wearability, I dont think you can have a bad pair of shoulders! It is a perfect balance of sexy and sweet making this style ideal for beach lounging or a summer soiree. 

Dresses are a great way to tackle this trend but I also love the loose boho inspired tops with billowing sleeves or sheer fabrics which can be styled with anything from a pair of jeans, culottes or an A-line skirts. While the sun is still shining, make the neckline daringly low, maybe even to point of exposing the beginning of the underarm crease. As soon as you feel a chill in the air, add a neutral roll neck or a crisp shirt underneath.

How would you style and off the shoulder piece? Let me know in the comment box below! x

  3. Beautiful, sexy, fun! You look awesome. I love Alexa Chung and that dress looks great on you. The Louis Vuitton bag with the face is the most precious. GREAT STYLE (as usual). As for your comment on my post – WOMEN CAN HAVE IT ALL, at least I plan to. I have a feeling that you probably feel the same way 🙂
