Off Shoulder dos and Don’ts

1. Wear slightly firmer fabrics that will hold the off shoulder in place.

2. Avoid tops that have elastic on the shoulders as it will keep sliding back up every time you raise your arms.

3. Your shoulders should look smooth and shiny. Put some lotion and follow it up with a concealer and highlighter, especially to accentuate the collar bones.

4. Avoid any kind of jewellery on the neck. Instead, wear large hoops, danglers or shoulder duster earrings.

5. Plastic or transparent strap bras with off shoulders look shoddy. Choose only a well fitted strapless bra.
