THE BOLD SHOULDER
Off-the-shoulder tops, dresses, and rompers are back just in time for the warmer weather. It’s spring quarter, and we’re all ready to go on summer vacation. This trend will let that much-needed breeze pass through and make you feel as if you were relaxing on a tropical island already. So, stack up on these pieces that’ll hide your pit stains (yes, girls obviously sweat too) when you are panting from class to class in the heat. Added plus: they’re fun and flirty. This post is especially for those of you who want to show off your bronzed shoulders from spring break.
