Off the Shoulder
Feminine tops have made a huge comeback this season. Many fashion designers have added sexy and versatile off the shoulder tops and dresses to their summer collections. This style is versatile and can go from daytime casual to nighttime dates out on the town.
Opening up the neck, decollette and shoulders creates an empty canvas to show off this season’s most sought after fashion jewelry trends. Perfect for the layered gold chains and cute iconic pendants gracing the GenZ necklines as well as the bold silver statement pieces and organic shapes preferred by GenX. Bearing both shoulders or just one, these tops are ideal for showcasing the latest beautiful 2021 jewelry trends for women across generations.
Many off the shoulder styles can take a woman from the workplace to lunch and to the beach simply by changing how the elasticized shoulder detail is worn, on top of the shoulder creates a sweet puff sleeve, pull to one side to show a single shoulder or cinch down for double bare shoulders.
