Boat neck tops, with or without bare shoulders, are very much in demand this summer. The way they lay upon the shoulders calls to mind the outline of a ship’s hull; ergo, the term “boat neck”.
This particular style was all the rage when our grandmothers were young; and, just like most trends, sooner or later they all come back. So, let’s talk about boat neck tops and the bare shoulder craze. When I think of the Look, I picture tops made with light blue fabric (especially those with very narrow white lines). Seems like we’re seeing it everywhere this summer, don’t you agree?

I think that this type of top pairs particularly well with jeans and denim skirts. If you really want to rock the Look, try tops with puffy sleeves and an extra voluminous body.

If you’re looking for something a little more chic and professional, dresses with boat necks and/or bare shoulders are available in a wide variety of colours. Office-appropriate clothing that espouses this style is equally popular this Summer. Here are a few ideas for you.

Bare shoulder swimsuits are very popular this Summer. You’ll find lots of them at Bikini Village. I love the one I recently bought. Here’s a pic of it.

I really wasn’t kidding when I said that the bare shoulder trend is everywhere. Draped sleeves are a stylish alternative you might want to consider.

I recently bought the top pictured below and was saving it for my trip to Florida. Yahoo! Warmth on my shoulders! Let me tell you, I really enjoyed the weather down south.

PSST: a word of caution (now that I’ve tempted you to try the Look), the one inconvenience of bare shoulder tops is that you have to readjust them whenever you lift your arms because they tend to ride up. Well, you’ve been warned! :p
