frilling off the shoulder top

When it comes to off the shoulder tops, I truly prefer pairing them with high-waisted pencil skirts. I think that these types of tops would also look very flattering with cropped pants or pencil pants. Last week I showed you an effortless, casual option to style the off the shoulder top. This black and white outfit here is more elegant and the frills on the sleeves as well as the statement necklace make the look very unique.

There is an ocean of styles available of off the shoulder tops allowing you to be as casual, creative or elegant as your personal style dictates. How would you style this top?

    This is the prettiest top I’ve ever seen! My goodness are those sleeves beautiful! I love how you styled it with a pencil skirt…I currently do not own any pencil skirts, so, I would pair it with pencil pants. :)

    Hope you’re having a great week!

      I think this top would show really well with pencil pants (high waisted ones since the top is cropped short). I can imagine this top with other neutral hues like cream, navy or grey. Something that doesn’t make the outfit look too busy.

    I love the frill detail of this top. So pretty and it looks great on you!

    You did it perfectly again ! I have seen these tops styled with ripped jeans and sneakers and the entire look is slouchy.
    You styled it to perfection. I love the monochrome (the frills are already too much, any other color than black would hurt the eye). The plain pencil skirt balances the frills madness that’s going on there and the necklace balances the entire look. Awesome. Very French ! You look like you’re heading to Le Cinq for lunch with your lawyer. You make me miss Paris :(

      Thanks Julia! Totally agree on the crazy frills! This top has so much going on that everything else in the outfit had to be toned down. …and yes, I’ve been seeing these types of tops styled with jeans everywhere without exception.

        I ordered two off the shoulder blouses one white, one blue and striped, but only after I’ve seen you styling them like this. I wasn’t convinced before. Now I’m jumping up and down waiting for them to arrive :)

          Oh, how great! I hope to see a pic on Instagram how you styled them! Have a great rest of the week!

    That look is so perfect! Love the detail on the sleeves – and black and white is a classic combination.

    Beautiful top and it makes a stunning statement with a simple black pencil skirt! Such a chic look!

    • http://redreticule.com Red Reticule

      Thank you Laura! Since the top is such a statement piece, I wanted to keep the bottom very clean and simple. So glad you liked it! Have a. Wonderful weekend! Bogi

    I love the look of the off the shoulder top with the pencil skirt–such a pretty, glam look!!

    • http://redreticule.com Red Reticule

      Thank you, Shea! I see these types of tops paired with slouchy pants or jeans a lot. I wanted to see how it looks it in a more sophisticated outfit. I would even wear this look to a dressier cocktail dinner.
