Billowing 1970s-style off-the-shoulder tops are lovely, but for women who prefer a sleeker way of dressing, it’s hard to get on board with the distinctly bohemian message they send. That’s we’re loving the fact that so many designers are creating styles that are more minimalist in construction: Tight long sleeves, boat necklines, and narrow bodices. Think: Brigitte Bardot, not Bianca Jagger.
