How to Pull Off an Off-the-Shoulder Top

Join the trend and try the off-the-shoulder look.

A guide to wearing summer’s trickiest trend.


  1. Find the Right Underpinnings

A strapless bra is a no-brainer—and if you’re on the bustier side, it’s also a necessity—but if you can, opt for reusable cover-ups instead. That way you won’t have to worry about constantly readjusting both your strapless bra and your strapless neckline.

  1. Try Cut-Outs Instead

Not sure if going completely cold-shouldered is for you? Test the waters with a top that has cut-outs rather than an entirely off-the-shoulder neckline. It’s an option that is equally as on-point, will allow you to wear your favourite bra, and will stay easily in place—no tugging involved. That’s a win-win-win.

  1. Dare to Bare

If you’re a sartorial risk-taker, try a twist on the trend that combines convenience and style: Pick a bra with pretty, embellished straps in a colour that contrasts or complements your top, and let them act as an accessory to your ensemble.
