All the sudden off the shoulder is ERY' where! Maybe it's a side effect of an overly chilly spring but even I'm intrigued by the allure of an exposed shoulder -- the vibe is so summer sunset. Plus, there is a romantic versatility to this look: Dress it down for weekend with denim and flat sandals or up for the office with a slim skirt and wedges.
Sold! I'm going to fill an open Summer '16 capsule spot with an off the shoulder top.
Epically disciplined capsule wardrobe convert that I am, I refuse to fall for the the first gathered neckline that brushes by. Like all capsule additions, this will be a well considered purchase decision: <$100 spend. Because: trend.

Cold Shoulder Tops
My imagined off the shoulder look involves two warm weather staples already in my Summer '16 capsule: white J.Crew Matchstick jeans and gold Sergio Rossi flat sandals. To match (and cover tops of thighs) I am scoping a tunic length top in a fun bright color, like this MICHAEL blouse or the sea green option on the right.
Brush It Off Dresses
Keep in mind, the shoulder craze doesn't stop at the waistline. While I don't have a need for a new summer dress, you might. These three frocks are easy on the wallet, so patriotic and totally scream for ice cream.
Rompers with Shoulder Room
The ubiquitous onesie started trending last spring and was apparently renewed for a second season. IMO, a romper looks best on the long legged and butt free. I am petite and pack an ass. So - no. If the jumpsuit gives you the feels, this summer's shoulder crop options are more "good vibe tribe" and less Studio 54. Here are three looks in order of leg length and butt width appropriateness.
So, are you sold? Oh! You've already bought one. Sweet. Share a snap of your cold shoulders on the MappCraft Facebook page!
