The off-the-shoulder silhouette has taken the runways and high street by storm.
Look at any celebrities nowadays and you’ll see some kind of shoulder action happening on the likes of Kourtney, Kylie or Bella.
The off-the-shoulder look is reminiscent of two eras in recent history which are highly significant in fashion nowadays: the 70s and the 90s.
Whether you choose to style it the 90s way or the bohemian way, the style is guaranteed to be a success as it adds a twist of refined elegance to your outfit and injects a dose of unexpected sexiness to the way you dress by bringing the focus to the oh-so-underrated shoulders.
Don’t give the off-the-shoulder the cold shoulder and discover our edit of the best of the style for under £30.
1. The Blouse
Crochet Off-The-Shoulder Bardot Blouse
Probably the easiest piece to wear in order to adopt the off-the-shoulder trend, the blouse comes in handy for those hot (or humid) summer days when anything else seems too warm and uncomfortable.
We would advise selecting voluminous pieces made of natural fabrics like linen and cotton.
2. The 90s Top
AX Paris Off The Shoulder Top
If you are more about 90s nostalgia, this kind of off-the-shoulder top is made for you.
Another way to show some shoulder, the skin tight fitting immediately brings you back to the era that saw the rise of the Spice Girls and choker necklaces.
It looks great with a pencil skirt and block heel sandals, giving a new definition to femme fatale.
3. The Dress
Glamorous Off-The-Shoulder Dress
Embrace your inner style goddess (or modern bohemian) with off-the-shoulder dresses.
Bringing an instant “summer of love” vibe to any outfit, the off-the-shoulder is so flattering and breezy it will be your best ally in the warm weather.
Accessorise with lace-up sandals and a poncho (which will prevent the sleeves from sliding up!) and golden bangles for the ultimate look of summer.
4. The Playsuit
Eva Off-The-Shoulder Denim Playsuit
All lovers of denim, rejoice!
The playsuit has proven its value over the course of the latest seasons as it is an incredibly versatile piece of clothing to own and the possibilities it offers are endless.
Case in point, playsuits come with uncovered shoulders too.
5. The Swimsuit

If swimwear has proved us anything, it’s that it can be as adaptable with trends as real clothing.
The off-the-shoulder trend has indeed pollinated the world of swimwear, taking major inspirations from our favourite crop-tops.
Colourful prints are the way to wear the trend and make a splash.
