The off-the-shoulder top is something every woman should have in her wardrobe. They are very elegant and can be worn to both casual and official events.
Joy Uwimana, a designer at Kigali City Market, says off the shoulder tops can be worn by everyone, regardless of their size.
“However, picking the right one for you is important. For plus size women, opt for one that doesn’t expose too much of your shoulders. A plain off-the-shoulder top looks cool with a bright skirt, short or long,” she says.
According to Uwimana, if it’s a short sleeved top, a blazer won’t kill the elegance. If you are into accessories, a choker necklace will work wonders. Also, pairing it with sandals is ideal if you want to lean more on the casual side.
“For a not so casual look, accessorise with big earrings that hang just above your shoulders. A cute pair of heels will also help highlight the outfit,” says Uwimana.
She advises that with an off-the-shoulder top, one should be sure to wear it with a strapless bra.
