The Shirt List

In case you’ve been living on a remote beach this summer, shoulder-baring shirts and statement sleeves are HUGE right now! The bare-shoulder trend is super versatile, packs a major impact, and looks great on every body shape and size—which is why we’re big fans of seeing them everywhere this season.

When it comes to wearing this look, we say don’t hold back! The style works for casual daytime outfits, date nights (i.e. a cute top with jeans), and it even looks amazing in dress or romper form.

The trend is especially cute during the summer months (sun-kissed shoulders, anyone?) and the billowy long sleeves so many of these tops have make the transition into chilly, late summer nights a total cinch!

From LA to the Hamptons, it’s all about off-the-shoulder tops, swoon-worthy sleeves, and shirts for daze! Here are some of our faves: (Can you hear your wardrobe calling yet?!)

Floral Ruffled Sleeve Off Shoulder Top

Nothing makes us feel more girly than wearing ruffles. We love how this top has a flowy, late summer feel without being too over the top. The pretty floral print will also add the perfect pop of color to your closet.

Bell Sleeve Off Shoulder Top

Bell sleeves give us all kinds of vintage vibes, but we love this modern take on the trend. Think light and airy fabric, an off the shoulder silhouette, and flowing bell-shaped sleeves. Wear this top with ripped and destroyed jeans or shorts for an authentic vintage look.

Floral Off Shoulder Bell Sleeve Romper

For those days matching a top to a bottom is just too much to ask—we present the off-the-shoulder romper. One-and-done pieces are major lifesavers in the summer. We love that this one can be dressed up or down and is the perfect piece to take into early fall days.
