WARNING: If there’s one thing you need in your wardrobe this summer…….it’s an off-the-shoulder top or dress! Sneaking into Spring/Summer 2015 collections everywhere…..it continued onto Autumn and back with another stylish bang and key trend for Spring/Summer 2016.  This is one style that is not going anywhere…….anytime soon.  From Brigitte Bardot to Bianca Jagger, the off-the-shoulder look has been so popular with the world’s most stylish women for decades.  It’s one of those looks that’s sexy without being too obvious, chic without being in-your-face.  Personally it’s a love that I look – my wedding dress was one-strap off-the-shoulder dress which I still swoon over to this day!

For this blog post I’ve feature the same top with two slightly different looks.  One – a more casual, day-time look and the other a more sophisticated, glamour look.  The top and style is so versatile, you can team it with a multitude of items including culottes, midi-skirts, shorts, jeans, mini-skirts amongst a few.  The gorgeous powder-blue top itself is from online Dubai-based fashion brand Tiny-Toots which can be found every weekend at Dubai’s Ripe Market in Zabeel Park and Barsha park and also ships internationally.  This is my second off-the-shoulder item from Tiny-Toots, I also purchased a fab cream off-the-shoulder dress which I wore when I was pregnant with my second baby last summer and can I just say – THE most comfortable item of clothing to wear….in Dubai….in the summer…..while pregnant.  I’m excited to get some more wears out of it again this summer and looks fab with a pair of gladiator sandals.

The fabric used in the top is super light-weight cotton, again perfect for the Dubai summer and holidays and I am OBSESSED with the colour.  I’ve seen powder-blue pop up in a lot of the high street stores for the Spring/Summer season and I for one am extremely pleased.  It’s one of those pastel hues that’s so flattering on everyone.  For the day-time relaxed look, I teamed the top with a pair of wide-legged dark tan trousers from Primark/Penneys with dark gold metallic buttons.  As they are quite long (yes I’m a short-ass at 5ft 5) I wore them with a fab pair of Zara mules which were a bargain in the sale.  Accessory-wise I added the cute pastel flower crown and woven-straw basket bag.

For the second look – I changed it up by adding the heels and peg trousers for a more glamorous and sophisticated look.  The Zara white peg-trousers give it a summery vibe whilst adding the ASOS silver pointy-toe pumps gives it a bit of an edgier look.  Accessory-wise I added a white woven-style clutch bag from Primark, AJ Morgan sunglasses and finished off the look with my usual red lippy!

In terms of the perfect ‘beach-to-bar’ top…..I really think this is it!
