Dreams of Denim: An Ensemble Brimming with Versatility and Fierce Elegance

Didn’t we all predict that the off-shoulder would probably die out by 2017? After all, it has been trending hot for the past five seasons now. But hey, isn’t that fabulous? Because stylistas all over the globe just can’t seem to get enough of this insanely voguish trend. This season is as perfect as any time to stock up some irresistibly chic off-the-shoulder tops!

And we hereby present you your best off-the-shoulder pick for a look brimming with versatility and raw glamour.

Show off those Beauty Bones

Created by an insanely talented New York-based designer-duo, Monica Paolini and Sean Monahan, this gorgeous off-the-shoulder denim top by Sea is going to be an extremely versatile addition to your wardrobe. You see, denim is the queen of chicness; especially when it comes to usability and durability, no other fabric can beat denim.  

You can flaunt this top whenever and however you like. For instance, if you are dying to revamp your power look for a workplace lunch and want to exude an aura that is sharp yet feminine, this denim peplum delight is going to be a great start. You can flaunt to make a casual, yet on-point, street style statement, or even a social dinner with friends and family.

This top has a distinctive formal flair that makes it perfectly on-point for formal dinners and meetings, or a significantly important career make-or-break presentation where you want your outfit to channel your inner energy and boost up your confidence.

Go Skinny!

The ideal length of this Sea top allows it to be paired up with countless bottom staples, from a tight pencil skirt to a maxi skirt, wide legged culottes, and much more. You see, the best thing about denim is the fact that it is amazingly colour friendly and you can pair it up with any and every color an style in your wardrobe.

But we suggest these drop dead skinny white jeans from AG Adriano Goldschmied, an Italian denim jeans designer, who is hailed as the "The Godfather of denim". So, if you have been planning to revamp your denim wardrobe with highly covetable jeans, this is just the opportunity you were waiting for, and you better grab it girl!

Amp Up the Glam

If you’re a big fan of accessorizing, this outfit will give you plenty of opportunity to oomph up the glam. As you can see, its neckline is perfect for pairing up chunky statement necklaces, and you can even layering up long pendants atop the elegantly simple bodice of the top. Go heavy on the footwear to finish off your look at a high note. Just look how these gorgeous open-toe beauties by Jimmy Choo have tripled the glam quotient of this look!

This outfit is an instant recipe for minimalistic chicness that strikes all the right chords of subdued glamour. And the best heart-melting part is that it requires minimal effort, which is a great news for working women, who need to prim up their looks seconds before they rush off to work.
