Flaunt a Cold Shoulder

A big trend on the runways for spring 2016 was the shoulder, with a multitude of fashion designers showcasing a range of looks that featured exposed shoulders.

Whether it was with an asymmetrical neckline, shoulder cut-outs, or an off-the-shoulder top or dress, giving ‘the cold shoulder’ never looked sexier.

Cut-outs

If you don’t want to bare your arms, a top featuring shoulder cut-outs is a chic way to try the trend. Often designed with long sleeves, a round cut-out on each shoulder enhances the look by exposing a little skin. Opt for a shoulder-cut out tee in a neutral shade spiced up with a black pencil skirt or crimson pants.

Asymmetrical

This style features an asymmetrical neckline with one shoulder covered with either a thick tank strap or cap sleeve, while the other shoulder remains bare or covered by a thin strap. Shop for dresses with vibrant patterns to make a statement, or opt for one in a neutral tone, like black, for classic look for formal functions and date night.

Off-the-Shoulder

Both shoulders are bare in this style of top or dress, and this look can be rocked in both a casual and formal setting. For a formal approach, try the trend in a dress and opt for a form fitting silhouette to accent your frame. Or, if you prefer to rock a more casual look, shop for an off-the-shoulder bohemian style top in a bright hue, like coral or orange, accented with embroidery or ruffles.
