I mentioned last Friday that the top that is a must have for spring/summer this year is the off the shoulder blouse. Not a tight t-shirt style, which can look dated, but rather a loose blousy one paired with shorts or skinny cropped jeans and sandals. It’s super feminine, great for super hot days and flattering on many body types. Wear this kind of top with big statement earrings and bracelets, but skip the necklaces to keep from adding any business to the already interesting neckline. Here are 12 great ones to try in a variety of prices from $20 to $375!
One of the things that keeps many women from wearing off the shoulder style is the need for a strapless bra- which has to be one of the most torturous items in the fashion world. Finding one that doesn’t slide down to your waist or give you pancake boobs or weird, unflattering lumps and bumps is so hard- especially if you are well endowed. Here are four top rated strapless bras to try for various bust sizes:
A long-line style, shown at left, helps keep things on the up and up, so look for that style if the ol’ slide-down makes you insane. At right is a minimizing style rated highly by women with larger busts (I’m giving this one a try since nursing plus strapless bras equals YIKES).
