Trend to Try: Shoulder Exposure

I have always considered the shoulder one of the sexiest, and most underrated, regions of a woman’s body which is why I’m all about the shoulder exposure trend that’s currently sweeping in.

An exposed shoulder creates that accidental sexy-effect which is super hot but not in an intimidating kind of way. I love the bohemian sensibility of this look, it just has that effortlessness to it that always looks amazing. I am also an avid fan of sweetly slouchy styles and this definitely fits the bill.

You can rock an off the shoulder slouchy dress like Lindsay Lohan wearing Rachel Pally or with a mini-skirt for a night out like Jessica Szohr. Pair a muted top with skinny pants like Lauren Conrad wearing a Vince long sleeve top; rock a Flashdance style tee like Vanessa Hudgens wearing a printed top by Free People, $29.95; or rock an oversized fashion-forward style like Ashley Greene, wearing a button-sleeve top by Prodigal Daughter.

Either way, this look always translates to hot and is a great way to rock the 80’s trend that’s trickling in while still keeping it modern.

Check out some of my favorite shoulder exposure styles after the jump!

Vince Off Shoulder T-Shirt, $110. A little shoulder action makes a basic long sleeve black tee a whole lot sexier!

I love a little shoulder exposure…sexy, not sleazy.
