I know, this likely is a look too young for me. I have come to love this season's style and the recurring season's off-the-shoulder knit tops. I do have several in both solid and stripes. If Chico's has it in their stores, it cannot be just for teens; right?
I did wear a black off the shoulder top to last month's Mercedes club meeting and another woman, of about my age, complimented me by saying she had several similar tops as well. Here in Florida we do get away with a summer look, year round.
The jeans denim skirt is this season's Banana Republic pencil skirt. It hits me just above the knee in the petite that I ordered. The top on the left is from Free People, several seasons ago. I could not find it currently available at Free People although I am sure similar sleeveless designs are out there. The top on the right is from Venus and is featured below with their a-line denim skirt.
Update on the skirt: The bottom edge of the skirt was raw and just cut. I took it to my alteration lady and had a hem (turn under) put in. That gave it a little more of a polished look. Had I gotten a regular and not petite, it would have better and she would have a little more material to work with without making it any shorter. Length matters.
Here is a Wiki How on "How to Wear Off the Shoulder Tops". Enjoy this youthful look.
