How I wear my "off-the-shoulder" top.



Today I'd like to show you how I wear my "off-the-shoulder" top.

I've mentioned before that I don't think this style of top works for me, having wide shoulders plus all I see are younger girls sporting this style with skinny jeans and looking so gorgeous, that's two reasons for me not going with it.  However I'm happy to say I can still wear this beautiful blouse but in a different way.
Here's how I wear said style and I hope you agree it still looks as good.

A pencil skirt and elegant blouse is the epitome of femininity and elegance, along with a court shoe and matching bag make for a very stylish outfit.
A recent buy from my local TK Maxx, one of my favourite stores,  an off-the-shoulder gorgeous pale khaki green and cream pattern silky blouse.  I stepped out in this beautiful blouse paired with this cream lace skirt from the Florence and Fred Sale see my previous post here, along with my sling back nude court shoes from a stunning range at Lotus Shoes.





The silky blouse is an off-the-shoulder style that I pulled up onto my neckline in a deep scoop, with sleeves just about finishing at the elbow with a darling little tie detail that I love.  I tied them quite tight for this wearing, because I was eating out and didn't want the ties to drag in my dinner plate - not a good look - haha!







This is the choice I made for my bank holiday Monday afternoon of shopping and dinner for two.  After checking out various restaurants we decided to plump for an intimate little Italian near the town centre. 
I can honestly say we had an amazing three course meal in Osteria Posillipo, consisting of Antipasti, Scallops wrapped in bacon, Salmon pennette, chicken escalopes with Parma ham and mozzarella followed by cannoli - perfect meal for two people - along with a couple of beers! (only one for me as I drove).


Well I do hope you like my way of wearing the off-the-shoulder top. In fashion with a hint of classic.

Until next time - thanks it's been great. X

  1. I think you wear it brilliantly! I tried an off-the-shoulder top on and I thought it looked terrible on me. My shoulders are so round, it didn't work either. So I skipped this trend.

  4. Jacqui, I think that's a great way to wear that top. I find OTS tops to be uncomfortable a lot of the time. That pretty blouse looks just fine as is. The tie sleeves are very cute. And, that dessert photo made me drool! I do love a good cannoli!

  6. I love this look on you Jacqui. Have you given it a go with off the shoulder. I have wider shoulder myself. Love how you styled it this way, the olive green print is lovely especially with the lace skirt.
    Thanks for linking up with My refined Style
