Off-the-shoulder, bare shoulder, cold shoulder – you name it, it’s everywhere! The off-the-shoulder silhouette graced the runways from New York to Paris last year and quickly found its way to the streets, highlighting the shoulders and décolletage of many.
We love it because this silhouette is extremely flattering and can mix with a variety of styles – from classic, to whimsical romantic, vintage bohemian or even an edgier look (think Olivia Newton-John’s bodysuit in Grease!)Image Courtesy of Viva LuxuryImage Courtesy of Little Black BootsImage Courtesy of A Pair and a SpareImage Courtesy of Fashion Me NowImage Courtesy of Sincerely Jules
Like most fashion trends, this one isn’t new – but in fact, it's actually quite old – as in, centuries old. It was worn in the 1800s, exposing *just enough* skin, yet still modest enough for the early Victorian women. Brigitte Bardot then popularized it in the 60s, and it reappeared once again in the 90s.Image Courtesy of Stylecaster
Whatever the decade, there’s no doubt that this trend is perfect for the warm spring and summer months. The elegant neckline effortlessly transforms any simple summer look to a totally chic and cool ensemble. Go on, brush your shoulders off.

“Nothing behind me, everything ahead of me, as is ever so on the road;” Jack Kerouac documented those poignant words in his 1957 novel, On the Road, and they have since served as an anthem to countless generations. With the call of summer fast approaching, the adventure-seekers that had been hibernating all winter are beginning to stir, as the open road beckons. The bags and the wide-brimmed woven hats that had been stashed in the closet are suddenly seeming tempting as ever and it seems as if the wind is whispering your name. You’ve got a bad case of summer wanderlust and the only cure is to heed the call and embark on a road trip.Image via Tumblr
Though hours in the car and endless possibilities for whatever awaits usually require comfortable clothes, that definitely does not mean skimping on style. The best way to pack for a wherever-the-day-takes-you kind of trip is to balance style with comfort. Sticking to a neutral color palette will allow you to mix-and-match with ease and keep dressing chic and effortless – think cut-off shorts and retro off-the-shoulder tops.

Fashion Girl Rule #1: There is nothing more effortlessly chic than a little black dress. However, when you mix in a striped print, that little LBD jumps to the next level and can easily be a key piece in every wardrobe.
Take Nichole Ciotti of Vanilla Extract, for example, who is seen casually strolling through the city of San Francisco, coffee in hand. Nichole’s day-to-day, “Café Chic” look is finished off by a pair of chunky black boots and a black satchel. The striped dress acts as a staple – something you can quickly top off with a leather jacket as you transition to evening – which is exactly what she did. For the girl on the go that is constantly running around the city with little time to change, there is no better shape-shifter than the little black striped dress.
Looking for the perfect striped dress to be a key player in your wardrobe? Nichole’s effortlessly chic outfit is available here.
