Tia Mowry’s silk ruffled Ports 1961 dress at the L.A premiere of “Hancock” may have been inspired by the off-the-shoulder look launched by Jennifer Beals in the 1983 film, “Flashdance.” So I said to a great friend – “Oh, there’s a trend born again!”
The asymmetrical look has been seen on Ghita fashion designer Alexis Phifer, newly Vogue it girl Tocarra, Michelle Williams, Vanessa Williams, Zoe Saldana, and recently Ciara. This look is H-O-T because you can still rock a bra like this convertible one AND you don’t have to worry about constantly pulling up your top/dress…technically.
The downside of wearing this look is the one-sided tan. (LOL!) Cocoa butter quickly becomes a girl’s best friend when you decide to wear this look. So sit back and enjoy a few affordable pieces you can grab to obtain the “Show that shoulder” look.
