One of Nigeria’s fashion trends that makes a lady look classy, fabulous and flirty is the off- shoulder Ankara style. It is suitable for all ages, body size and stature.

Off-shoulders have been in vogue for a while now among fashionistas, but staying stylish is the latest trend of it. It comes in different styles ranging from blouses to gowns, jumpsuits and halter necks.

Off the shoulder styles can be sewn together with the sleeves or detached, you can transform your off shoulder tops to buttoned-off shoulder tops, cropped tops, or Aso ebi styles. They are accessible and comfortable to wear with any kind of shoes or accessories.

Today’s off-shoulder styles can be designed using Ankara, lace, Kente, brocade and other materials. You can rock it with long or short skirts, a pair of jeans, shorts, or any other fitting pant trouser. It can be worn as casual, party or office-wear.

Styling Tips To Rocking Off-Shoulders
. When selecting an off the shoulder style, the top should fit your shoulders and bust seamlessly to prevent any mishaps. The material around your upper arms can fit either loosely or tightly for a more structured look.
. You can wear your hair down slightly messy in those beach waves, or pull it up in a messy ponytail/bun and expose the shoulders.
. Jewellery is perfect for a sheer or cropped off the shoulder top. Pair up with your thin necklaces, layered or not, for your shoulder tops or dresses.
. Get the right bra to wear with the off-shoulder material, preferably nude colour.
. Get the right length for your size. For taller ladies longer tops are ideal, for short ladies cropped styles or ones that graze your jeans pockets are best, for the big size ladies the ones that falls lower are perfect.
. Make sure the top isn’t too tight, having one that is firm on your shoulders is perfect to avoid annoying movements.
