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.Pixie Market
