TREND ALERT: Off the shoulder tops have taken over this summer's trends! They are everywhere. I actually bought this shirt last summer around the same time, so I'm giving myself a pat on the back for being ahead of the trend on this one. I have broader shoulders because I am a collegiate swimmer, so I was afraid that this top would make them look too big. Easy ways to get around this are opting for a sleeve that is not continuous from the body, like this Free People one! This breaks off the top and gives the sleeves and body different levels allowing for a more feminine look. I love the eyelet floral cutouts for this season as well. Don't be afraid to pop in some bold colors! A good was to decide on color blocking colors is to select one more subdued color (purple) and a bolder color (red). Also, be sure to use less of your bold color! This will add noticeable color without feeling overwhelming. Layering thin chain necklaces and body jewelry is great for this warm weather and gives your look a lighter feel.
