Show off your shoulders for this end of summer trend

From Olivia Palermo to Kendall Jenner, the shoulders have the spotlight this summer with blouses or dresses that reveal their décolletage the classy way.

Just because you can’t attend the summer’s biggest music festival or lounge on a yacht with Valentino doesn’t mean you have to give up wearing the off-the-shoulder look to keep it cool before fall sneaks up with its layers of cardigans.


While celebs get first dibs on runway outfits, trendsetters can still get similar romantic dresses from Nasty Gal or classic blouses from Forever 21 with that same flowy look for the perfect transition from summer to fall.

To avoid the beer maiden costume effect, keep the outfit balanced by wearing a longer, looser silhouette for the bottom.

Take cues, like with Nikki Reed, who wore the trend several times, once with a black and white combo topped with a wide-brim hat and ankle boots. In June, Reed stepped out wearing a blue and white print dress paired with a quilted bag that signaled her readiness for the summer to begin.

While the trend has popped up during summer, switching to a off-the-shoulder knit will suit the late fall season with warm berry hues.

Will you be wearing this trend for the rest of your summer? How about fall?
