Off the shoulder tops are a popular style that's still trendy this summer. Baring your shoulders is a fun, flirty way to show some skin on a date, especially if you're not comfortable with deep cleavage tops. You could easily wear this trendy top style with jeans, but why not show off your body confidence in a cute mini skirt or pair of shorts? If you want to make legs look longer and leaner, high heels would look great with this cute summer outfit.
