Off the Shoulder: Images of beach cover-ups or teenagers strutting thru the mall may come time mind, but there is something sexy AND elegant about showing just the right amount of skin with an off-the-shoulder blouse or dress. For a classy look, I prefer the long sleeve version (although a short sleeve top or dress is perfect for a casual outing). Keep the rest of your look neat and demure. Tops pair easily with both trousers and skirts, or more casually with your favorite pair of jeans. If you’re wearing a dress, keep the hemline at or below the knee, which is a classic and chic look.
Patches: Yes, really. They’re just as rad as they used to be! And, you can totally wear these in a grown-up way by layering your denim jacket over a simple sundress or paired with trousers. I’m opting for a DIY version, which allows you to choose patches that truly resonate with you. However, there are many cool jackets available that are ready right off the hanger too.
Body Suits: Record skip. I’ve lost you. Wait…come back. Let’s talk layers here (I mean, more power to you if you’re confident rocking a body suit alone). Body suits are ideal peeking out from under a slouchy top or thru a sheer blouse. I love the neat look when tucked into a trouser or layered under a dress (think that turtleneck and slip dress combo is achieved with a normal shirt??). Or simple, yet sexy when worn with a blazer or moto jacket.
