I picked this Sanctuary off the shoulder top because it incorporated two fun elements! Floral and ruffles!

Off the Shoulder Trend by Body Type
INVERTED TRIANGLE: You want to look for cold shoulder or off the shoulder that has a lot of detail on the bottom. These work because there is detail at the bottom which helps create balance among the halves.
RECTANGLE: Find items that help creates curves like these two below. An empire waist or uneven hem will give the illusion of a curvy body.
TRIANGLE: Keep the eye drawn up with interesting detail in your off the shoulder pick. The big asymmetrical ruffle and horizontal stripes draws attention to the upper half instead of the lower half.
HOURGLASS: Even though you are blessed with symmetrical curves, you still need to be conscious of what to put on your body type. Avoid making one half look overly big by keeping the details creative. I love both of these options because they give a fun details without being over the top.
