I used to have this bright pink, off-the-shoulder, taffeta dress. It had a full skirt, complete with a tulle slip. I think my mom and I found it at a thrift store—it was a sassy little number straight out of the 80s. I wore it as Miss America one Halloween and then later I would traipse around the house in it playing dress up. Although I was young, and might not have known exactly why, as soon as I put it on, I instantly felt elegant and sophisticated. I remember that special, off-the-shoulder neckline was so different from anything I had ever worn, that it made me feel very grown-up.
I couldn’t be more excited that this look is back and better than ever. Cold shoulder and off-the-shoulder tops, dresses and rompers are everywhere right now. I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite, affordable shoulder-baring looks from Topshop and H&M. If you’re thinking about test driving this trend, from casual to dressy, there are a lot of options out there right now. I think this look is especially perfect for summer getaways.
