Of all the items in our closet, off-the-shoulder tops and dresses win the gold medal for fussiness. If the look wasn't so charming and trendy, we would probably would have all called it quits along time ago. Having to constantly adjust your top every time you move your arms too much is annoying. I saw a genius trick online and had to give it a whirl — it really works! 
All you need are 2 hair ties (sometimes I use elastic headbands) and medium size safety pins to keep the top exactly where you want it.

You're basically constructing a bungee that will lay underneath your armpit and keep your shoulders cold in place, whether you're reaching for something in your bag or lifting your arms over your head.

What you'll do: 
1. Loop one hair tie through a safety pin.
2. Secure a second safety pin on the other side of the hair tie. It will look a bit like a bungee cord with safety pins on the outside and elastic in the middle.
3. Fasten one safety pin to the inside elastic or seam of the shirt (so it will be invisible from the outside), right at the front of your armpit. Attach the second safety pin to the back.
4. Don't forget the other side of the shirt! lol
5. When dressing, weave your arm over the elastic and through the sleeve so the the hair tie rests under your armpit.
