On Trend Tuesdays: the shoulders

April 11, 2016, by Deena @Shoes to Shiraz

ON TRENDOn the Blended Blog last week, I talked about 4 trends I will be trying this spring.  You can read the posts here.  Last week I talked florals. 

[dropcap]T[/dropcap]here are two shoulder trends that I am wanting to try this season: the off the shoulder and the cut out shoulder.  Luckily, I found a beautiful flowy button up top that had cut out shoulders at Winners for only 30$.  Yes, I put my dollar signs at the end, I'm french.  I don't know about you, but I'm not usually willing to fork out a lot of money for something that I don't think will stick around.  I have this top packed in my bags for the Vegas trip this weekend.  This is how I am wearing it (but now how I'll be styling it for Vegas)

Black jeans, black top and a subtle cutout on the shoulder.  Now to be more ball-sy, you could get something like this insanely awesome top that Shaunacey picked up this past weekend at Bootlegger.  I know also want this top. It is a good mix between the shoulder cut out and off the shoulder and is super cute.  I really hope she packs this for Vegas so I CAN SEE IT IN REAL LIFE. High fives for meeting blogging friends in real life!


As for a good off the shoulder top, I have seen it styled many ways and I am going to reference my stylespiritanimal Lipgloss and Lace.  Again, she styled the off the shoulder top perfectly that she forced my hand on the top I was humming and haa-ing over on zulily.  This is what is coming my way:

So, what's the verdict? Will you be trying something cool on your shoulders this summer or spring??

    I just ordered my first off the shoulder top and I can't wait. I have a cold shoulder top, but its a sweater and I can't wear it till next winter (hope its still in trend then!). Love that black top on you!


  2. Loving this trend- so flirty and great for spring + summer!

  3. I really want to try these too! Im a little bit concerned with the bra situation in the off the shoulder one, so Im curious about those with a racer top underneath...

  4. Personally I'm not sure how I feel about shoulder cutouts but I am really falling for the off the shoulder tops. My budget is pretty tight this quarter, though (I have a few costly things on my wishlist), so I'm not sure I'll have room for a spring/summer trendy piece :(

  5. Looking fantastic!!! That trend is back again? Was so big in the early 90s. Haha.

  6. I really want to try an off the shoulder top. There are so many cute ones out and I would love to take advantage of not getting weird tank top lines! Love the top you picked out, too. The style and color make it really versatile!

  7. Very cute! I think the cut out shoulders look great on you!

  8. I dunno.... this looks throws me back a bit to my child hood and a floral pink shirt that I loved. I would have to see something on myself before I made a verdict for myself.

  9. I LOVE your cutout top... can't wait to see it in real life :)

  10. hahah me and my post-shopping no shoes crappy pic in the bedroom lol. And yes, it's in my bag!!

  11. Cute. I'm obsessed with both of these. I tried on a few off the shoulders ones in PA Winners and they were NOT winners. Bah. Have so much fun!!!!!

  12. I'm the same....am thinking I may try a strapless...I guess we'll see!

  13. I love the 90s. MOstly the music. And the overalls.

  14. I am actually quite tempted to cut one of my old sweatshirts and make it off the shoulder....

  15. I am going to wear the cut-out top in Vegas...I will likely get those weird tan lines :)

  16. But did you go to Welcome INNNNNNNNN and get a snowdrift?

  17. The cold shoulder tee looks amazing!!! Such a fun trend this season!

  18. All of you are gorgeous, and I love these tops. I'm on the fence because I don't own a good strapless bra. And I hate spending money on bras I can only wear with one or two things. Hmm...
