On Trend Tuesdays: the shoulders

On the Blended Blog last week, I talked about 4 trends I will be trying this spring.  You can read the posts here.  Last week I talked florals. 

[dropcap]T[/dropcap]here are two shoulder trends that I am wanting to try this season: the off the shoulder and the cut out shoulder.  Luckily, I found a beautiful flowy button up top that had cut out shoulders at Winners for only 30$.  Yes, I put my dollar signs at the end, I'm french.  I don't know about you, but I'm not usually willing to fork out a lot of money for something that I don't think will stick around.  I have this top packed in my bags for the Vegas trip this weekend.  This is how I am wearing it (but now how I'll be styling it for Vegas)





Black jeans, black top and a subtle cutout on the shoulder.  Now to be more ball-sy, you could get something like this insanely awesome top that Shaunacey picked up this past weekend at Bootlegger.  I know also want this top. It is a good mix between the shoulder cut out and off the shoulder and is super cute.  I really hope she packs this for Vegas so I CAN SEE IT IN REAL LIFE. High fives for meeting blogging friends in real life!



As for a good off the shoulder top, I have seen it styled many ways and I am going to reference my stylespiritanimal Lipgloss and Lace.  Again, she styled the off the shoulder top perfectly that she forced my hand on the top I was humming and haa-ing over on zulily.  This is what is coming my way:

So, what's the verdict? Will you be trying something cool on your shoulders this summer or spring??

    I just ordered my first off the shoulder top and I can't wait. I have a cold shoulder top, but its a sweater and I can't wear it till next winter (hope its still in trend then!). Love that black top on you!

  3. I really want to try these too! Im a little bit concerned with the bra situation in the off the shoulder one, so Im curious about those with a racer top underneath...

  4. Personally I'm not sure how I feel about shoulder cutouts but I am really falling for the off the shoulder tops. My budget is pretty tight this quarter, though (I have a few costly things on my wishlist), so I'm not sure I'll have room for a spring/summer trendy piece :(

  6. I really want to try an off the shoulder top. There are so many cute ones out and I would love to take advantage of not getting weird tank top lines! Love the top you picked out, too. The style and color make it really versatile!

  8. I dunno.... this looks throws me back a bit to my child hood and a floral pink shirt that I loved. I would have to see something on myself before I made a verdict for myself.

  19. All of you are gorgeous, and I love these tops. I'm on the fence because I don't own a good strapless bra. And I hate spending money on bras I can only wear with one or two things. Hmm...
