As new fashion trends go, the off-shoulder look has some history. But you don’t have to take the scissors to your sweatshirts like Jennifer Beals in Flashdance, you can get the off-the-shoulder look this summer that definitely says 2010 instead of 1983! Katy Perry, Beyoncé, and Geri Halliwell have been photographed recently in chic, shoulder-baring tops.
This is an easy way to get the asymmetrical neckline that is so popular among fashion designers this summer. It’s a younger, more casual version of the Greek goddess dresses we’ve seen on red carpets so much in 2010.
There are several ways to incorporate this look into your wardrobe. You can pair it with leggings and simple heels to get an Audrey Hepburn-meets-Brat-Pack-era Demi Moore look. Or you could wear it with distressed denim in a nod to the 90s grunge look. The possibilities for this fashion style are endless.
