In a few months we will all be scrambling for outfits that can keep us cool without sacrificing style. We say prepare for inevitable heat waves in easy off-the-shoulder tops! Why? Because this seasonal trend lets you shrug off your sleeves to catch the breeze. Plus, you get to bare skin in a totally chic and – dare we say it – Parisian way. That sounds like a win to us!

Beach Bike Ride
Here’s some advice… Ditch everyone who’s walking and get a sweet beach cruiser instead! Stay comfortable as you take in the sights in broken-in, distressed denim shorts paired with a Breton-inspired, striped off-shoulder top. Protect your skin with a stylish and super functional woven straw hat and add modern jelly sandals that are sand-and-water-friendly.
Ladies’ Day Out
Finally. You and your lady friends all made room in your schedules for a day of mimosas, brunch, and shopping. An all-day event like that calls for an easy romper with a collarbone-baring, off-shoulder neckline and chunky platforms that you can walk in for miles (at the mall). Stow your cards and phone in a hands-free crossbody, and slip on a sleek gold collar to finish off the look.
If you happen to be attending a garden party, graduation party, or shower, this cool, comfortable, and flirty look is perfect. Lightweight chambray doesn’t weigh down a voluminous skirt which matches an equally chic, ruffled, off-the-shoulder top. Stay grounded in cognac chunky heels which won’t sink into a grassy lawn. Add a gleaming statement cuff and earrings, and you’re all set!
