A specific type of shoulder-less sweater which is naturally designed with a low and wide-cut neckline which ensures that the garment sits just below the shoulders, leaving them and the wearer's upper chest area bare. Often features a thicker, sometimes mantle-like hem along the top.
Off-shoulder sweaters are meant to emphasize and accentuate the wearer's shoulders, collarbone, and neck (or nape), with the sleeves of an off-shoulder sweater sitting on the upper arms instead of on top of the shoulders.
Frequently appears as a distinct variant of ribbed sweater.
The sweaters worn by Belfast (in her Shopping with the Head Maid skin), most fanart depictions of Yor Briar (in her casual red sweater attire), and Fumika are some of the best examples of this tag (ie. post #4267943, post #5375235, and post #3237136, respectively).
Do not use this tag for a normal or moderately wide-necked sweater simply being worn off shoulder (ie. post #1553067) or for open/partially open sweaters worn hanging off the upper arm (ie. post #5307823, post #5775199, etc.), due to the fact that these sweaters are not naturally designed with a low and wide-cut neckline.
Off-shoulder sweater is mutually exclusive to single-shoulder sweater.
