The trend this Summer is taking the boho look a step further and showing off your shoulders with off the shoulder peasant tops or cut out shoulder baring tops. As you can see from the celebrities above and below, it is an easy going, pretty but sexy style. This look is fantastic for those with a pear or hourglass shape figures, as it balances out your proportions. We are also fans of boat neck tops for this reason.

Seed have a wide range of gorgeous off the shoulder tops, at the moment there are 11 tops in the range and 3 off the shoulder dresses.
