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
