One of those few things that women of all ages and body types feel comfortable with is shoulders. So if you are in a rush to bare some body parts this spring, may it be them!
A resurgence of the off-the-shoulder trend started in 2014, since then this silhouette obtained its ubiquitous status for spring-summer and even variations for fall-winter. Borrowed from the glamorous 50s, the design kept its vintage vibe in contemporary styles. It is a lot more fierce and sexy, yet ladylike and elegant: from models showing off your entire clavicle to those going down to your underarm crease.
Contemporary pieces include dresses, tops, shirts, knits, playsuits and jumpsuits reworked with elasticated tops to ensure the garment remains in place, dramatic voluminous sleeves, ruffles and even slim straps to allow you freedom of movement.
Off-the-shoulder trend can be dressed up or down, works well from beach to bar, it’s both daring and nonchalant, feminine and romantic and so easy and versatile – absolutely irresistible and will take a permanent place as your wardrobe essential.
