End-of-summer heat waves have us shedding layers for both style and survival – a statement that’s taken shape in the form of wildly popular off-the-shoulder ensembles. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Rita Ora know that giving the cold shoulder is the season's hottest trend. Celebrities this week kept their looks fun and flirty thanks to playful ruffles, one-shoulder dresses and cool cut-out pieces.
Transformer: Dark of the Moon star Rosie Huntington-Whiteley had us blushing hot pink in a Malibu Barbie-inspired Balmain ensemble. The former Victoria’s Secret model donned a billowing fuchsia blouse and matching flared trousers with one thigh-high slit for a polished take on the seasonal style.
Rita Ora gave the cold shoulder in a black-and-white ensemble while filming America's Next Top Model. Her oversized Hellessy blouse with black bandeau topper shows just how expertly we can transition the summer trend to our fall wardrobes. Rita kept the look sleek and streamlined with black capri trousers and white heels.
Brit beauty Lily James proved the off-the-shoulder look can go from day to night in a strapless Burberry dress overlaid with a sheer topper geometrically patterned with velour. The star of the company's latest fragrance campaign added a belt at the waist and anchored the look with pointy black pumps to channel her onscreen Cinderella counterpart.
Throughout the week, stars like Heidi Klum (in Wolk Morais), Alessandra Ambrosio (in Camilla and Marc), Natasha Lyonne (in Faith Connexion) and Harley Quinn Smith (in House of CB) kept the off-the-shoulder look trending. War Dogs actress Ana de Armas’s fitted, barely there Narciso Rodriguez gown already has us nostalgic for those steamy summer nights!
