Brush Your Shoulders Off

Inspiration for the new week!

I’ll admit I was hesitant to embrace the off-the-shoulder trend for no reason other than it felt almost too decade specific; however, after finding a subtle version that works with many outfits, I was converted.  First of all the neckline is universally flattering.  This style draws the eye to the collarbone (a flattering feature on almost everyone) and face, making for a complimentary look on any frame.  There’s a reason why Brigitte Bardot, the original bombshell, modeled this style so often.

I found this simple, black knit version which is easy, relaxed and works with so many outfits.  One recent Saturday I paired it with some grey jeans and a messy half top knot for some afternoon cocktails before seeing a band play at a local venue.  It also works just as well with some easy knit shorts or style it with a black pencil skirt and a red lip for a sexy date night.
