I have never been one to classify the pieces in my wardrobe as exclusively on- or off-duty,
only worn to certain places or occasions. If I buy a piece I love I damn well want to be
wearing it as much as humanly possible, so this often requires some thoughtful coordination
when it comes to dressing up, or in this case dressing down, my favourite pieces to make them
appropriate wherever I might be headed. Case in point: this Ellery off-the-shoulder top. So clean
and minimal in its design, I couldn't stand to relegate it to exclusively evening or event status,
so out with the loose Bassike pants and sleek flat sandals it was for a perfectly-formed off-duty look
for whatever I had planned that day. Better yet, now that I am on holidays, these types of
looks are just perfect for lazy beachside days so you know I'll be pulling this baby out
whenever I can. Nothing more satisfying than discovering a piece is far more versatile than
first thought, am I right?
Shop this top plus a few more of my favourite off-shoulder options below, and start baring
those shoulders every opportunity you can.
