Off-shoulder or cold-shoulder outfits are very much in vogue. They look great on almost every physique. Even the shyest girls are ready to take the plunge into this style trend. They are comfortable and elegant at the same time, making them the most loved outfit trend. If worn properly with the necessary precautions in place, these outfits can heighten your style quotient to several notches above the ordinary. But, God forbid! If not, they can ruin the entire day for you.
Here are some tips to carry those off-shoulder or cold-shoulder outfits with confidence:
Always pair them with the correct bra: Strapless bras are the most obvious choice for these outfits but there are more options that can help you rock these outfits with equal ease and confidence. For example, an adhesive bra can also work wonders with these outfits or if you are of the shy types, just go for a double strap (the decorative strap types) bra which will make you feel confident with the straps in place and no fear of your bra rolling down, and at the same time enhance your outfit’s style.
Choose the right print and length: These outfits can go extremely wrong if the print and length is not appropriate. Always choose vertical prints if you are heavy at the shoulders or even at the waist. Likewise, shorter girls shouldn’t opt for long off-shoulder or cold shoulder outfits as they will make you look shorter in the bargain.
Choose the right color: Not only are the prints and length important but choosing the right color for these outfits is also a must. Darker colors make you look thinner and taller. So, choose the color that suits you the best. Also, the bottom you are pairing with these off-shoulder/cold-shoulder tops matters a lot. Always keep in mind what you are pairing these outfits with and what is the color or the print style of the bottom. Color-coordination is a must to make these outfits look great.
‘Bust’ the style myth: It is not that all off-shoulder & cold-shoulder outfits suit everyone. The size of your boobs is another important criterion to be considered while buying these outfits. The heavier ones should opt for flowy silhouettes whereas, the tiny ones can opt for those super fitted or clingy outfits too.
No headlight situation please: Nipple-show is a strict no-no with these outfits. Always use nipple pads (they stick on) before opting for a daring no-bra outfit. The cold weather or the AC shouldn’t ruin your look.
Bonus: Off-shoulder & cold-shoulder outfit option for winters: just pair your favorite top with a clingy high-neck woolen inner to rock this winter. You can also opt for off-shoulder coats (yes, like Kim Kardashian) for the cold months or can choose a woolen off-shoulder jumpsuit for the chilly season.
