Exposing a little skin is the fastest way to give a edgier vibe to a traditional garment. This is exactly the appeal of the off-the-shoulder sweater.
The off-the-shoulder sweater is a sexy twist on the conservative classic. While first becoming popular in the 80's (think Flashdance!), off-the-shoulder sweaters made a reappearance in the 90's, but are currently soaring to new heights of popularity. The off-the-shoulder sweater is now widely considered a wardrobe staple for many women!
Off-the-shoulder sweaters, like most other varieties of sweaters, come in all different colors, patterns, styles and fabrics. Off-the-shoulder sweaters are currently very popular in a looser-fitting bohemian style with a wide neck and even wider arms. Off-the-shoulder sweaters can be worn exposing one sweater (the wide neck hanging loosely off one shoulder), or exposing both shoulders (usually a tighter-fitting sweater, with the neck being particularly tight to fit securely on the outsides of the shoulders).
The off-the-shoulder sweater is perfect for almost any occasion. For a casual look, try the off-the-shoulder sweater under a blazer or puffy vest and denim jeans. For a more elegant look, try the sweater with some dangly earrings or a profound necklace, paired with some dressy slacks and heels.
