Split Second Styling Tips

What To Know About The Top Everyone Is Wearing Right Now

If you're like us, Beauty and the Beast was in heavy VHS rotation when you were a kid. And, if that's the case, there's a good chance you were as besotted as we were with Belle’s buttercup-colored, off-the-shoulder gown. While a giant hoop skirt and matching arm-length gloves no longer hold the same appeal, a shoulder-baring top is a story that never gets old. Now, with festival season in full swing, the style has returned as one of the boho trend's MVPs.

It does have one pitfall, though: getting that straight-across neckline to stay put, without having to sacrifice your magnificent moves when the crowd favorite storms the stage. In the video above, fashion features director Connie Wang shares a genius hack that stops the sleeves from popping up over sun-seeking shoulders. You just need two minutes, a few household items, and a summer-ready peasant top. All you have to do is watch, learn, and do — just don’t forget the SPF. We've handpicked a few tops we love. Check them out, below.
