Having dabbled with the idea last summer it appears that this is the season for the shoulder to take centre stage. Dubbed the new erogenous zone this is music to our ears, as cleavage bearing necklines are something we were happy to leave in our 20s. The Bardot – less glamorously known as the off the shoulder top – is a key wardrobe frontrunner for this spring/summer.
Now we know that this isn’t the easiest style to get on board with, but avoid all of the stretched jersey torso revealing offerings and the Bardot can be easy to wear and incredibly flattering. Showing off just the right amount of collarbone whilst keeping upper arms covered, it’s a style saver for weddings and holidays too. Closer cut styles are a great pairing for your wide leg culottes and midi skirts, whilst a cotton version with tie sleeves (as seen here on Wendy) is the ultimate summer piece when worked with your favourite denim. I’ve gone for longevity with a dress version of the trend here from Asos. Worn over jeans for now, I’ll be teaming it with leather sliders and a tan on holiday.
