The off the shoulder blouse is the one making a comeback.
I have some vague and distant memory of wearing these some decades ago.
The beauty of age; what comes around goes around.
Here is the thing about wearing off-the-shoulder blouses; they work.
And they especially work with a fuller figure around the middle because they hide what we don’t wish to see and draw focus to the shoulders and the legs. Clever really.
Wearing the off the shoulder style is about the right shape worn the best way.
This summer I’m wearing off the shoulder and often; even if I am not on holiday I will feel like I am. xv
How To Show The Shoulders With An Off The Shoulder
- The blouse needs to be the right length the right length; I like mine to fall below the waistband and somewhere near the top of my legs.
- The hemline needs to be free, not gathered.
- The neckline is prettier if worn slightly on the shoulder and not right off; that depends on preference but if the neckline is versatile it helps. A larger bust looks less with the neckline lower; a smaller one is better with the neckline slightly higher.
Whatever is worn with the off the shoulder should be slim fitting; my preference is jeans or capri pants. The slim leg in contrast with a more voluminous top is very flattering.
