“Apiece Apart”

Off The Shoulders

The off the shoulder top is THE trend item of the year! It’s also a beautiful piece to add to your timeless wardrobe. Here is some advice to find the perfect one:

-The cut: You’ll find many different styles in stores: some with trumpet sleeves or ruffles, others with different length. I think they’re all beautiful, but If you want to invest in a piece that’ll remain classic over the years, I suggest opting for a simpler version. Mine has 3/4 sleeves and a regular length, so I can wear it tucked in a skirt or over my pants for a more casual look.

-The color: the off the shoulder top is a summer essential, but if you opt for a color you would wear all year long, you’ll be able to add a blazer over it or wear a shirt underneath. As you can see in the pictures, I opted for a black version because it matches perfectly with all the items I have in my wardrobe!

-The fabric: When investing in a piece you hope to wear many years, I suggest taking the time to find one made of from a good fabric. With appropriate care, it will last for years! This one is made of silk, which is extremely comfortable to wear in summer and looks luxurious and chic for a special event or under a blazer at work.

This way, you’ll enjoy your off the shoulder top all year long and for many years to come!

By the River

This place by the Saint-Lawrence river on l’Île-des-Soeurs is a well-kept secret! I love to go there at sunset to clear my mind and center myself.

It was also the perfect place to take a few pictures of this splendid dress. The fabric is definitely surprising as the weave seems rough, but as soon as you touch it, you realize how soft and breathable it is.

By belting at the waistline, it enhances the curves of the silhouette. But I prefer to wear it in its simplest form. I’m more comfortable that way and I love to wear casual looks in the summer! The straight cut is currently en vogue in New York and I think we’ll be seeing it more here soon!

You will find this dress and belt at Les Étoffes.
