How to Style an Off the Shoulder Striped Top

Some pieces of clothing are quintessentially summer,  and one of those is a romantic off-the-shoulder striped top. Here’s how to style this popular top that has a coastal vibe, that’s hard to tire of.


This blue and white striped off-the-shoulder top nautical reminds yo of sunny days of sailboats

blue off the shoulder top

What to wear with? white jeans – can wear blue but white is

how to keep it in place?

What to wear under it? strapless bra

Tuck in or out? push up sleeves

How to accessorize? jewelry colors of the bag


This blue off-the-shoulder top has an easy, breezy feel to it. It’s very light and flowy, and the charming 3/4 length sleeves call out for a pretty bracelet.


I was surprised at how well this top sits on my shoulders. I didn’t have to keep tugging the neckline up or down. It stayed put, which gave me a lot of confidence. The smocking is also so lovely, and I like the way it sweetly frames my face.


I’m wearing off a shoulder top with white cropped jeans, but it would also look great with regular jeans or a cute cotton summer skirt.

Since this top has a romantic quality, I decided to wear it with these feminine lace-up perforated sandals.  They’re nude, so they blend in my jeans and elongate my legs, and the cutouts add a lot of styles.


See the heel on these sandals?…. Perfect! Not too high, but high enough. A sturdy and comfy shoe.


How do you like this pebbled leather Tory Burch bag? It’s a crossbody that doubles as a clutch. The pretty shell color is so soft and beautiful with the blue and white theme.

I mentioned earlier how this top calls out for arm candy, so I’ve added two bracelets. The first is this gold Crisscross Cuff.  It’s so fine and delicate like the pinstripes. The other bracelet is a little more new age. It’s made of symbolic, semi-precious stones that accent a gleaming hammered-metal bar. This Power Stone Bracelet is said to promote good vibes!


Long, lacy Kendra Scott Earrings are a nice way to draw attention to my off-the-shoulder neckline. Everything about this look is soft and heavenly.


It’s so refreshing to try a new look. This outfit is great for warmer weather and makes me feel pretty.


One last look. My off-the-shoulder outfit has such a calm, laid-back feel. You can shop this top as well as my complete look at Nordstrom.

  1. I remember seeing these kinds of shirts all last year and thinking I wouldn’t participate in this trend, Deborah!
    But I finally found a strapless bra, so now I’m rethinking it!!
    They are so cute- even though I’m older- my shoulders still look okay!!
    Thanks for this fabulous inspiration!

  2. OMG: You look beautiful in that outfit! But please tell us more buxomly girls what bra you wore under there.

It's your life. Make it Fabulous!
