Coral Cold Shoulder Top Two Ways

Well hello Monday! It’s the last week of school for us, and my kids couldn’t be more excited. Me? I’m mixed. I am looking forward to lazy mornings and warm summer afternoons spent at the pool, but I also know how hectic it gets with all three kids home so it will be an adjustment for sure.

I’m styling a short-sleeved cold shoulder top today, and don’t hate me, but it’s low inventory. I didn’t realize it when we took these pictures. It is so frustrating when this happens. It just arrived three days ago! On the plus side, it’s 60% off! (It also comes in the coral in petite sizes and those are fully stocked at the moment, and it comes in yellow and black.)

Anyway, I love this coral color for summer, and if you like these outfit ideas, you can easily apply them to any coral summer top. I styled it first with white jeans and heels for a fun date night look.

I usually wear neutral shoes with a colored top and white jeans, but I think these blue suede sandals make a nice contrast to the coral top and add a fun point of interest. Bonus: they’re on sale!

I carried a leopard clutch because I like the addition of the texture and the print.

I’ve said it before, but these shoes are remarkably comfortable and easy to walk in for a 4-inch heel. I know not everyone cares to tromp around in 4-inch heels, so here’s a similar sandal in a lower heel. I like that shade of blue a lot too.

I like this top a lot but I do wish it were a little more fitted through the body. I’m not sure if that’s something that can be altered or not. I know it’s supposed to be a relaxed fit, but I noticed it was a little more slenderizing on the model on the website. I’m wondering if they had it cinched in the back or something. (I’m starting to get wise to these tricks! LOL!) I’m already wearing a small so I don’t think I could take it any smaller.

This top does require a strapless bra and I highly recommend this one.

I wore chandelier earrings and a gold cuff bracelet for accessories. I really like this look for a summertime date night or an event that doesn’t require a dress but you want to look dressed up.

This top also looks great with distressed blue jeans and casual neutral sandals.

These sandals are from The Walking Company and they are soooo comfortable. When I was struggling with foot injuries, my doctor recommended a shoe with a low wedge and this one fits the bill perfectly. It also has a built-in orthotic for those of you with finicky feet. The cork wedge sole and the studded straps keep them current.

These are my all-time favorite jeans but if you don’t like the distressing, you can wear whatever jeans you like. I do think a lighter wash is nice with this coral color and it’s trending this season. I almost styled this top with these frayed skinnies from LOFT. They look great with it as well.

I changed to stone drop earrings and a cognac leather hobo handbag in keeping with the more casual vibe of this look.

I like this top a lot and the lace detail is so pretty. I usually have a lot of this color in my summer wardrobe, but for some reason I find myself buying a lot of blue this year (which is nice too) but I miss corals and pinks. I rounded up some other nice options in coral for you to consider if this one is sold out in your size or if you prefer a top that doesn’t require a strapless bra.


This dolman tee is nice if you like a more casual top. Lou & Grey makes the softest shirts. This embroidered flutter sleeve top is cute, but definitely works better on women who are smaller up top. I love this halter but it is kind of low on the arms; I’d have to see how it looks on. This ruched tank could be cute on the right person; it’s a great color. Here’s another easy tee with a split shoulder for interest, and I really like the looks of this linen knit tank. Here’s a simple summer sweater (it would make a great layering piece) and another basic tee (no boob pocket, yay!) Finally, this bow top with ruffle trim would be adorable on the right woman; I wish I thought I could pull it off!
