When it comes to all things fashion, as you know give it time and the trends always seemingly circle back. One trend that I was not quick to jump back onto was the off the shoulder necklines. It just brought me back to the days of Beverly Hills 90210 circa Donna Martin and those boho tops she was always sporting. Plus, it was too dangerously close to the tube tops and attached long sleeves trend. I just can’t. I’ve also seen chokers making a comeback and I promise you, I will never be reviving the black choker trend no matter what. However, I have really been loving the flirty fluttery necklines that are making a comeback in a big way. Now to find a piece that actually works with my body type.
I ordered a ton of dresses and returned a ton of dresses due to the fact most of them had no shape, the material was see through or the off the shoulder area would keep on sliding. I finally found the holy grail with this Susana Monaco dress. Yes, it is a little bit on the pricier side but I guarantee you, when the Summer heat sets in. I will be wearing this dress on major repeat. The best part, a built in bra. How genius. That was always my concern with these dresses, what bra to wear, how uncomfortable having that strapped on with the irritation around my shoulders on top of it. Well, this dress solves that for you. Also, there is an elastic band that goes around the top that keeps the sleeves in place with no slipping. The dress isn’t lined but is thick enough you don’t have to worry about the sun peaking through. I steamed it and it stayed relatively wrinkle free in the FL heat. Add some fun espadrilles, a Spring purse and you can even layer some dainty necklaces on top. This will be your new favorite hot weather dress. (Sidebar, I was outside for seriously only an hour at the baseball game with my fam with 45 SPF on prior to this….the Florida sun is no joke).
