Off-the-shoulder T-shirts are a unique way to make even the plainest T-shirt and jeans outfit more interesting. The style can be flattering on almost anyone, and looks less simple than a regular T-shirt cut. Off-the-shoulder cut shirts are great for parties or days you just want to look a little more stylish and dressed up, while still being comfortable and casual. As with any T-shirt, you can wear off-the-shoulder ones with almost any outfit to create a variety of looks.
Make an Off-The-Shoulder T-Shirt
It's easy to take your favorite tee and make it into the off-the-shoulder style. Grab some sharp scissors (if you want, you can even purchase fabric scissors that will work best) and cut carefully around the shirt's collar off to create a wider neck opening. Since the opening is now larger, you can shift it to one side so that it hangs off one shoulder. Once you know how to cut your own off-the-shoulder shirts, you can take any tee you want and make it into this style. If you have old band tees in men's sizes, making them off-the-shoulder will make them more feminine and the size will be less of a problem, since off-the-shoulder shirts are popular right now in billowy, slouchy styles. Or, take one of your favorite old tees and change it up by making it off-the shoulder, and from old clothes you can make many new looks.
Wear an off-the-shoulder plain tee with denim jeans or jean shorts and sneakers. Now you have a versatile outfit that is a little more interesting than your basic look. Since your bra straps will probably be visible, either wear a strapless bra or a one with discrete straps, or you can choose one with straps that go with the color of your shirt. Remember to be careful about this whenever you wear off-the-shoulder T-shirts.
Larger, slouchy off-the-shoulder T-shirts are very popular right now. Try a plain-colored slouchy tee with shorts and some boots for a casual yet stylish everyday look. Darker colored shirts, like those in grey, black, or blue, look great with a nice pair of cutoff jean shorts.
Wear an off-the-shoulder T-shirt with a miniskirt and heals to create a sexier party look. Some off-the-shoulder styles come with sequins or other bright and colorful designs that will really make the style stand out.
Skinny jeans always look great with looser styles of off-the-shoulder T-shirts. The fit of the jeans gives your legs some shape to contrast with a more billowy top. Fine a great, well-fitting part of skinny pants in any color and pair with a matching off-the shoulder tee for a casual night out. High heels look great with skinny jeans as well, and can dress up your look even more. You can also wear high-heeled boots.
Off-the-shoulder style tees are great because the go so well with any type of bottom, and really can make an outfit more unique. Try your off-the-shoulder tee with skinny pants, shorts, or a miniskirt to create a variety of great looks.
