“Look 1, I paired the top with a high waisted denim skirt with a pair of converse and a backpack to complete the look and is perfect for a casual day outing.
Look 2, I wore a black dress along with the top and wanted to keep the look monochrome, so paired it with white heels and wore these golden earrings to add a hint of gold to the outfit, I am absolutely loving how it turned up, this look is perfect for a date night.
Look 3, I paired the top with the boyfriend denims and a pair of tie up heels, wore a choker with a hat and I was good to go. loved the gothic look.”

“Summer is here and so is the ultimate summer trend – the off shoulder! This fun and feminine style is easy to carry off and perfect to beat the heat (and look chic while doing it). The off shoulder aka the cold shoulder style is a must-have in your wardrobe this season as it is light and breezy and looks flattering on almost all body types. This versatile piece can be glammed up or toned down with ease and is an It-girl essential!

Here are a few ways you can dress the look and get through the summer in style!

Look 1, Casual: Boyfriend jeans are a great way to add a touch of carelessness to the off-the-shoulder girly attire. Contrast the flirty off shoulder top with a pair of boyfriend jeans for college or a date with the girlfriends.

Look 2, Boho:  You can’t go off shoulder without going boho! The off shoulder, flowy dress is a key piece in every boho lover’s closet. Bring out your inner bohemian by accessorising the dress with a statement tribal necklace and your favourite reflectors.

Look 3, Chic: Take the look from day to night by pairing the off shoulder top with a leather skirt to give your date night outfit that extra dash of sexy. Grab your highest heels and you’re ready to paint the town red.”

“Bare those shoulders, because this season it’s all about shrugging off your sleeves. Off shoulder tops are flirty, flattering and super feminine what more could you want from a single piece of clothing? This trend is the best way to combine sexiness with sophistication. A flowing top with ruffles like this one becomes endlessly more alluring when it combines with off the shoulder detailing. So here are 3 ways you can style your off shoulder tops.

Sonam 1

Look 1: For this look I went all out and paired my off shoulder top with a fun little mini skirt. The print and patterns on the skirt and bright bold color of the top makes it perfect for summer. Adding to the array of colors are my earrings and sandal. Top and Ring: Hill Road, Bandra; Skirt: Forever 21; Earrings: Ssoul Jewelry; Sandal: Zara.

Look 2: The off shoulder top can easily work for date night. If your top is simple like mine look for elements which will help add glam factor. My velvet skirt with sequins and lace does that for this look. A dash of diamonds never hurts anyone.  Top: Hill Road, Bandra; Skirt: Hong Kong; Earring, Necklace and Ring: Thrifted; Sandal: Sole to Soul.

Look 3: One of the easiest and simplest way to adopt this trend is to pair your off shoulder top with jeans. It’s a no brainer look and if you feel this look is more on a plain jane side, try experimenting with accessories. For me big hoop earrings, a leopard print scarf as a headband and stack of rings do the trick.  Top: Hill Road, Bandra; Jeans: Levi’s; Scarf and Earrings: Thrifted; Rings: Pipabella; Sandal: Forever 21″

“If there is one trend fashionistas can not get enough of this summer, it is the off-shoulders!

These had been understated but now, from tops to dresses, off shoulders have made themselves not just a trend but also a wardrobe essential. 

Be it bohemian, dressy, color-popping or architectural/structured off shoulders, I think you definitely gotta own one of these!

Here’s me styling my pastel off shoulder crop top  in 3 different looks:

Megha 1 Off-Shoulders with Overalls and sneakers  for a sporty casual look.

Megha 2 Off- Shoulders with Boyfriend Jeans and Sandal Heels for that Casual Chic look.

Megah 3Off-Shoulders with a Tutu Skirt and Pumps for a Classy Date/Cocktail look.”

Denim DiariesDenim Diaries:

Classic blue or classic black, white, ripped or distressed, an off shoulder top with a jean can never go wrong. Wanna create a different look? Try an off-shoulder crop top like Kendal Jenner, or take the ruffles way out like Olivia Palermo . Pair it with a statement necklace, a pair of danglers, a choker or go minimal on it. Whatever you do,do not underestimate the sheer feminity an off-shoulder brings to the whole look, so don’t hold back on experimenting .

Fancy Pants Story.Fancy Pants:

Ditch your regular jean and embrace something different if you are feeling a little fancy. Style your off-shoulder with a high up above the waist pnts like Sonam Kapoor and kill’em with the lip colour or suit-it-up like Dakota Jackson going black-on-black. You can also pair it with bell bottoms like Kendall Jenner or high-waist boot cuts with some really uber cool sunnies for a perfect day look.

Legging it Up.Legging it up:

No, it’s not a black-on-black story though you can opt for it, but colours didn’t hurt anyone too. On that note, how about going bare shoulder on leggings? Sporting the Athleisure trend like Kendall Jener, going for a party, brunch like Miranda Kerr or actually hitting the gym, this look will surely turn heads. Accessorise it right and pop a vibrant shade on those lips like Gigi Hadid and you are G2G… good to go babe!

You can never go wrong with the classic blue jeans and white top combo. A sling bag and sunnies to give it that street-style touch!
