Cold Shoulders

“The only place you never gain weight is on your shoulder. It doesn’t get wrinkly, it doesn’t get fat. I love shoulders.” - Donna Karan

Sorry midriff but you’re out this season. And all of us forever struggling with flat tummies give a collective sigh of relief. Lol! Come spring and summer seasons were coats are no longer needed and it’s time to bare some flesh, the style deities have pronounced a new erogenous zone – the clavicles. Yes, off-shoulder top is the neckline of the season.

The ever-sage Donna Karan was right above. This trend is absolutely flattering for everybody. I mean, have you ever heard somebody say they hate their shoulders? None. Nil. Nada. Shoulders could REALLY use some “focal point”. *wink* It is the easiest and least controversial expression of a kind of sex appeal. Agree? But how do you wear it?

In the gallery below, this trend is much appreciated more with a waisted silhouette as seen in a black on black number using a pencil skirt. Though most would say it best to keep your hair up, gallery B proves that it can also be pulled-off otherwise using this top with a bohemian vibe. You can also layer a cropped off-shoulder top to a maxi dress as seen in below. And you thought it's just one dress? :P  By the way, that's a shot somewhere in Massachusetts. :)

Pull the top lower to show some underarm crease for some confrontational look, wear it with a dangling earrings for fun or pair it with just about anything – the possibilities are endless! However you like it, simply wear the off-shoulder with a smoulder. Haha! :D
