KEEP IT CASUAL

The blouse we’re working with from Lulu’s is super flirty, and although the details are subtle, it’s best to let them speak for themselves. Pair it with some dark, regular denim - something overly distressed might take away from the boho vibe! The sheer fabric of the top paired with the long sleeves and exposed shoulders makes it the perfect springtime transition piece. The polka dots are fun and playful, and the volume of the sleeves balances out the cinched top, making it a flattering option for any figure.

With an off the shoulder top, it might be tempting to over-accessorize, so be careful. You don’t want a ton of clunky necklaces taking away from the exposed shoulder look, so opt for layering some dainty pieces instead. Another great option is to toss your hair up in a loose, textured pony to play up the boho vibes and accessorize with some gold hoops! Grab a neutral pair of wedges like these Marc Fisher ones, throw on a pink matte lip for a pop of color, and your look’s complete!

If you want to try out something a little more extravagant than your typical blouse and jeans combo, this top would pair perfectly with a thrifted pair of overalls. The cinched waist of this top makes it a great option to layer under some overalls, since it won’t come off as boxy or ill-fitting. It’s definitely a statement, but it’s a trend that’s taking the fashion and festival scene by storm. An adorable pair of sandals (or pumps, if you want to glam it up a bit) would pair well with the look, and a unique crossbody bag like this one would really pull it together.

A little too adventurous? Dress up your look by opting for the black version of the blouse instead. The sheer fabric is even more accentuated in the black version, so it’s ideal for a night out with the girls. Pair it with some faux leather leggings like this pair from Express and a classic pair of pumps. You’ll still be rocking that flirty vibe thanks to the off the shoulder, but your outfit will be a whole lot edgier!
