Shop The Trend: It Only Counts If We See A Shoulder
Extra! Extra! Your shoulder is the season's best accessory. We've got a plethora of chic AF shoulder-baring pieces that'll do the trick.| April 3, 2017
If there’s one thing you can takeaway from the latest batch of street style photos, whether in Milan or Paris, it is that anything and everything can be turned into an off-the-shoulder piece. A tailored menswear shirt, a granny cardigan, a quilted bomber jacket, so on and so forth. It is the easiest street style-approved styling trick to master. But the thing is, there’s no guarantee of 100 percent comfort with these. Just take your nearest bomber jacket, zip it up and pull one side down your shoulder. Feeling just a little suffocated at the collar? Jacket popping right back into the non-cool position with the slightest movement of your arm? We thought so.
Enter the solution: pieces that come with their own shoulder-baring features. They’re born that way! No need to keep pulling one side down just to make sure the world – and its street photographers – sees your décolletage or that shoulder curve! If the dress or shirt is asymmetrical, you get extra brownie points for keeping things interesting.
With the weather slowly turning into spring, we can’t thing of a better way to start baring some skin. One shoulder, two shoulders, cut-outs, preppy, sexy, date-ready – take your pick from our favourites below. If you’re feeling particularly spring-y, don’t forget to check out our edit of the season’s best florals that you can shop right now.
