A trend that I'm totally loving for Spring and Summer is the "cold shoulder". It's a fun and flirty way to show skin, without revealing too much. When I'm shopping with a Client, I always ask what parts of their bodies they like and what they want to hide. In 10 years of shopping, I have yet to hear one person say they hate their shoulders. Arms, yes, but shoulders, not one. They are such a sexy and forgotten body part.
The cold shoulder trend can be worn in many different ways. The dress (pictured above) has slits that reveal my shoulders and the tops of my arms. Not ready to show off your upper arms yet? No worries. I've also seen tops with just a couple of inches showing the tips of the shoulder. I've also seen a more romantic take on a cold shoulder by having a neckline, but then the sleeves fall to she sides, revealing the shoulders but still covering the arms.
This trend of came in style about 5 years ago, and I love that it's back in full force. I love the cold shoulder on a dress, but I'm also obsessing over the sheer romantic tops that have the look too. I like to pair an off-shoulder floral sheer top with a pair of mid-rise flare jeans (also back in style and for another blog). Try the cold should look and you'll instantly feel sexy without feeling too revealing.
