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.


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.


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.


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.
