Off the Shoulder Spotlight
Posted: Jun 17 2016
Off-the-shoulder, bare shoulder, cold shoulder – you name it, it’s everywhere! The off-the-shoulder silhouette graced the runways from New York to Paris last year and quickly found its way to the streets, highlighting the shoulders and décolletage of many.
We love it because this silhouette is extremely flattering and can mix with a variety of styles – from classic, to whimsical romantic, vintage bohemian or even an edgier look (think Olivia Newton-John’s bodysuit in Grease!)
Like most fashion trends, this one isn’t new – but in fact, it's actually quite old – as in, centuries old. It was worn in the 1800s, exposing *just enough* skin, yet still modest enough for the early Victorian women. Brigitte Bardot then popularized it in the 60s, and it reappeared once again in the 90s.
Whatever the decade, there’s no doubt that this trend is perfect for the warm spring and summer months. The elegant neckline effortlessly transforms any simple summer look to a totally chic and cool ensemble. Go on, brush your shoulders off.
