Off-shoulder tops or Bardot tops have taken over the apparel stores recently. From dresses to tops to jumpsuits, every retailer’s racks are filled with tons of off-shoulder outfits. Undoubtedly, they are exceptionally attractive and accentuate the collar bones but the same style doesn’t fit all. This is particularly true if you’re a curvy girl. So, I’m going to tell you exactly what you need to keep in mind when you go searching for your perfect off-shoulder top.

Off-shoulder tops are actually pretty versatile – there’s one for everyone. I have always loved Bardot tops and I genuinely think they make you look very sexy, without being too in-your-face. I am rather petite, so it has been really easy for me to style them. Layered off-shoulder tops that enhance the bust area are perfect for skinny girls like me. They can be paired with fitted trousers or boyfriend jeans, depending on the look you want to go for. Ensure that one piece of the outfit is loose, while another is body-hugging as wearing two loose-fitting items simultaneously can make you look slightly shabby. A high bun and choker can instantly make you look like a royalty. Finally, an elegant pair of sandals and a handbag of your choice to go with will complete this look. And that’s it! You are all set to meet your friends over lunch.

If you are a busty girl, fret not! You too can experiment with such a neckline with confidence and look elegant. You should avoid layered off-shoulder tops as much as you can. If you are apprehensive about your fuller breasts, then you should go for a patterned off-shoulder top, it will create an illusion and keep the eyes moving.

Now that you have some guidelines, stock up some for yourself!
