How to Wear an Off-the-Shoulder Top Without Looking Too Sweet

Everyone from celebrities to retailers agrees that off-the-shoulder tops are the biggest trend of the season. We’ve seen virtually every style, from fashion It girl Olivia Palermo’s flirty tops to Kate Middleton’s elegant dress—but the latest take on the summer staple has us rethinking how to wear an off-the-shoulder piece. Rita Ora put an edgy spin on the shoulder-baring top by wearing a ruffled, striped number with distressed jeans and combat boots. The blousy, oversize Caroline Constas top is a statement piece on its own, and Ora casually dressed it down with the rest of her ensemble. Accessories played a significant role here as the singer chose a chunky choker, stacks of silver rings, and a NasaSeasons cap to toughen up her look. After all, she happened to be exiting a Radiohead concert in NYC, so the look was totally fitting.
