How to wear to work: Off the Shoulder Tops

minimalist outfit for work

Since I last did a post on tackling crop tops and culottes for the workplace, I thought I'd tackle the other big trend this season -  off the shoulder tops. While off the shoulder tops are easy to pull off on the weekend, I'm always looking for fresh ways to bring the latest fashion trends into the office. And after some experimenting, I think I've figured it out.

As a rule of thumb, I tend to stick with a neutral, monochromatic palate when opting for non traditional cuts, and play with colors when I'm going for a more stereotypical conservative work outfit (like this button up/pencil skirt).  So for this off the shoulder ruffled top, I stuck with a white/cream combination for a more streamlined look and played with two versions depending on your office environment. For a more creative office, draping a light summer scarf over your top might be all you need, and for the more conservative environment, simply slip the straps up onto your shoulder for a cool, asymmetrical look.

  1. I love that top! I wasn't sure off-the-shoulder tops would have staying power, but they are still really going strong!

    1. Thanks for your kind words and lovely hearing from a fellow corporate workwear blogger! I agree, I've been so surprised by its staying power that I've found myself stocking up on a few more versions recently, haha!
