It's August, which mean's many people are trying to wear is little as possible in order to beat the heat. Naturally, sleeveless tops and dresses are go-tos for staying cool, the off-the-shoulder trend is definitely a stylish alternative that let's you show a little more skin than the typical tee.
The off-the-shoulder look isn't exactly a new trend — the collarbone-bearing look has been in style for decades, which gives this look a vintage, yet still modern style. Whether it's in the form of a flowy top, or a body con dress, this silhouette highlights your neck and shoulders, and is super versatile and sexy, no matter your personal style. So basically, it's a win-win for everyone.
Let's face it — though style blogs and social media sites like Instagram are definite must-bookmark options when it comes to finding style inspo, celebrity looks are also a great way to stay up on the latest trends for fashion-lovers. So, why not take a look at some of your favorite celebs who have rocked this off-the-shoulder look to see just how you can style it yourself?
From a day at the beach to a night on the red carpet, here are some celebs who've stood out by showing off a little shoulder:
1. Karlie Kloss
This simple, turquoise dress on Kloss is the perfect boho style. The slight ruffle detail on the shoulder gives her an easy, casual look.
2. Kate Hudson
Kate Hudson's rocked this take on the off-the-shoulder trend backstage at a Michael Kors show, where the actress sported a mustard top with a matching floral skirt. There's something about this top and her red lips that make this a gorgeous summer outfit.
3. Olivia Palermo
Palermo is all smiles on a boat in a loose, eyelet sundress that works perfectly with her enormous sun hat. If this look doesn't scream summer perfection, I don't know what does.
4. Kendall Jenner
This look on an off-duty Kendall Jenner is definitely giving off some Grease vibes. Pairing a simple black top with your favorite mom jeans is an easy way to show a little more skin.
5. Kristen Wiig
If you think off-the-shoulder is strictly casual, think again. Kristen Wiig rocked this at the Golden Globes.
6. Emma Roberts
Roberts' graphic top is a unique take on this look since the sleeves appear to be longer than on many off-the-shoulder pieces. Still, she totally kills the trend with a simple necklace and perfectly disheveled braid.
