I do this thing where I frequently fall in love with looks that are completely different than what I consider to be a part of my personal brand, simply based on what my favorite celebrities are styling in. This week was no different when I saw Rachel McAdams in an off the shoulder little black dress, truly killing the game with class.
In addition to the shoulder-showing element of the dress, the cut out in the middle brought the look to an entirely different level. She essentially shut down the premiere of Southpaw with this dress. Not to mention, McAdams' short and chopped hair cut is perfect. She's honestly one of those human beings that you're just in awe of, with natural beauty that surpasses understanding. SERIOUSLY. I'm not being ridiculous. She is gorgeous. The combination of Rachel being Rachel, and a dress that is simply stunning, basically leads us to perfection.
It's rare that I desire to slip on a dress everyday, but let me tell you, it's about to happen! McAdams has inspired me to take a step away from my oversized tomboy t-shirts and boyfriend jeans, and step into a simple little dress.
Here's a glimpse at the glory that is Ms. McAdams in this outfit.
For those of you frothing right now (which I know you are) it's totally expected. Really, we're all in this together. And if you're wondering where to find a dress that features the same off the shoulder element, have no fear. It doesn't mean you have to rock something quite as dressy, because you can always style in the same vibe and still stay casual. Here a few options for you summer look!
1. Proud In Print
2. Be A Babe In Black
3. Summertime WHITE
4. Ladylike in Long Sleeves
It's safe to say that we're all about to show off some shoulder this summer.
