Off The Shoulder

I have always loved off the shoulder looks as I think they highlight one of the most beautiful parts of the female body. Your shoulders are strong, seductive, alluring and feminine in their curves.  What better way to show them off than with an off the shoulder top.

This look is very much on trend as a summer wardrobe staple but so many of the options I found online were in neutrals and you know how I love my color and pattern, so I decided to get creative!

I was inspired by a YouTubers, Mel & Steph from The Fashion Citizen and the easy tutorial they had about turning a button down blouse into an off the shoulder top so I decided to give it a go! I found this top at the thrift store  for $2 and followed their instructions and it so was so easy, it makes me want to cut up all my shirts and convert them.  The only thing I did different was I used a “no sew” adhesive that I bought at the 99 cents store in place of sewing the top.

My before and after are below.  I also created a long sleeve version as well in a different print. Tag me on social media @IAMSHEGLOBAL if you try this out. I’d love to see your creations!

  1. I LOVE this outfit on you and in my favorite orange hues to boot. I am going to have to try your DIY and thanks for the Inspiration!

    1. I adore orange too! This was really an easy DIY and you should definitely try it. I will say if you use the ‘no see’ adhesive instead of sewing that it works best on cotton and not as well on polyester as I tried both. Thank you for stopping by my blog and sharing your comments. I appreciate it! ~Sheena
