This personal style post is part one of my mini series “What I Wore in Paris”, where I highlight the different outfits I wore during my recent trip to Paris . And at the same time I call it part deux(French for two), because it’s my second Off The Shoulder style post. You can read about the previous post here. With that being said, lately I’ve been obsessed with ripped jeans and off the shoulder tops, so I thought: Why not combine both and rock this look in the fashion capital of the world?
This blue off the shoulder top is a very popular one from the H&M Conscious collection(S/S16). Popular in the sense that I’ve seen many bloggers and non-bloggers rocking this blue cotton top. Maybe because it’s only EUR9.90? Nonetheless, I still have a love-hate relationship with this off the shoulder top. I hate it because the tiny straps on my shoulders keep falling off to the side and this recycled cotton is very crinkle-sensitive! I managed to edit the photos in a way that I could remove most of the crinkles (in case you guys would think I didn’t iron it – trust me I went over this top a zillion times!). Anyhow, reason why I still love this top is because the color and fabric look just like denim(which makes it easy to combine with any other garment like jeans), plus I got a thing for boxy designs as well. Anyways, I think I might cut the straps off or sew it a little tighter, so it won’t bother me any longer. I guess sometimes you just have to fix fashion to make it fit your personal style.
Do you have the same off the shoulder top? What’s your experience with this “fashion trend”and how do you incorporate it into your personal style? Let me know. xo – Jey.
