TIPS: How To Pick Out Fabric For The Off-Shoulder Trend:

  •   Good quality Ankara and  Soft lace:

Good quality Ankara and soft lace are not only accessible and affordable but also very easy to work with in designing the off-shoulder style.

  • Silk: 

Silk is a lightweight, delicate fabric that drapes well. It has a slightly shimmery appearance. Silk can be slippery and more difficult to work with but very good for an off-shoulder top or blouse, it also makes a great lining fabric.

  • Satin: 

Satin can vary from lightweight to heavyweight, depending on the type of satin. Like silk, it has a glossy appearance. And you will need some extra elastic for the finishing in order to achieve the off-shoulder style.

  • 100% Cotton Material

Cotton is a lightweight, semi-sheer fabric with a great drape. This natural quality makes it easy to achieve the needed comfort in wearing an off-shoulder style.

  •  Chiffon:
 Chiffon is a smooth, lightweight fabric. It drapes well and provides the essence in achieving a perfect finish when aiming for an off-shoulder maxi dress or jumpsuit.

  •  Knit:
 In the knit fabric category, there are several types of knits, varying from lightweight to medium weight. Knit fabric is your go-to for any garment that needs to have a great deal of stretch. Patterns are designed for either woven fabric or knit fabric, and patterns sized for knit fabric will often specify the degree of stretch needed in the fabric. This is a huge advantage for the off-shoulder style. 

  • Linen: 
Linen is a medium-weight fabric with little elasticity (hence the wrinkles). But it conducts heat very well, which is why it’s a popular choice for warm-weather anything. Perfect weather for the off-shoulder trend. 
 This is by no means an exhaustive list, but these fabric types are a good place to start when shopping for fabric for the off-shoulder style.
