Among all kinds of off the shoulder tops, my favorite has to be the off the shoulder knit sweater. I think it must be some magically chemistry between the skin and the knit that make the shoulders and collarbones look especially sexy. Another thing must be that off the shoulder sweaters are often wore in the fall and the winter when no many people are showing much skin, making the sexy look extra rare and attractive. Now, let me share some of my favorite outfit ideas and hopefully you will try a few of those.
