The cold shoulder trend is everywhere right now, and we couldn’t be more into it. Shoulder-baring is an effortless way for women of all ages to show a little skin, and we’re obsessed with how flattering it is. To show you how versatile this trend can be, we’ve put together two stylish looks that make us wonder why we ever covered our shoulders in the first place...
Friday morning at the office: If your business dress code allows it, we highly recommend flaunting the cold shoulder at work. A chic sweater with strategically placed cutouts is a professional take on the trend that will keep you cozy – especially if the AC is still blasting! Keeping with the volume on top, wide-leg gaucho pants give the ensemble a cool, ‘70s vibe. Add long gold earrings and chunky heeled sandals to elongate the relaxed silhouette.
Wednesday night drinks at Moxie’s: With fall quickly approaching, we want to rock cute dresses as much as possible before it gets too cold. This peasant dress is full-on bohemian (and borderline prairie), and perfectly bares the shoulders without feeling too girly or delicate. This look could easily take you from running errands to drinks with your girlfriends, depending on how you style it. For a night out, finish off the look with some loose bangles, nude sandals, and a trendy septum ring.
