Top Ten Trends of Summer {No. 5 Off Shoulder}

Hi everyone! Hope everyone had a memorable and relaxing Fourth of July weekend and that you were all able to recharge over the long weekend!  I had a packed weekend mostly spent outdoors enjoying the beautiful weather and festivities!  Today I thought I'd pick up where we left off in our Summer Trends series {see the other trends here}.  This is No. 5 of my favorite Summer Trends -- off the shoulder!

Unlike crop tops {which I steer clear of} or super tight body-conscious tops or dresses that are very on trend right now-- the off the shoulder trend is one that suits almost everyone.  Showing a bit of shoulder is universally sexy without giving too much away.

Below you'll find some inspiration and shopping options!  

Off the shoulder dresses

Other Options
I like these black off shoulder dress options (here, here, here, herehere, and here) to dress up for a night out.  These white dress options (here, here, here, here, and here) have more of a bohemian feel and I'd pair any of them with these lace up gladiator sandals.  Then there's this really cute little navy dress, this sexy red dress, and my absolute favorite-- blue floral midi dress from ASOS-- would somebody please invite me to a wedding so I can wear this baby?!

Off the shoulder tops

Other options::
This gorgeous navy blue top or another navy option, this mauve option is interesting, or this black crochet top would go great with this skirt, and then there's lots of white options (here, here, here, and here).
