This Fool-Proof Hack Will Keep Your Off-Shoulder Top Off The Shoulder
Off-shoulder tops have graduated from just a summer trend to a wardrobe essential. Ever since they exploded on the street style scene, these adorable little tops have become a go-to for fashionistas big and small. We think it’s because of their variety, there is literally a kind of off-shoulder top for any kind of event. Plus, they show off the décolletage but no cleavage so they make you feel sexy without revealing a thing. There are shirted off-shoulders for work, puffed sleeves for vacay and the ruffled kind for any and all outdoorsy, summer-y vibes, this is a versatile style.
Having said that, if off shoulder tops sound too good to be true, it’s because they are. They constantly ride up with almost all the time and we end up spending a better chunk of the day engaged in a tug-of-war game with our own clothes. Fortunately, there is a way to stop an off shoulder from constantly riding up and it is a simple one too!
