Cold shoulder has been trending this year both nationally and internationally. This is surely a trend to look out for this year. Cold shoulder came into prominence when Hillary Clinton flaunted a cold shoulder dress in 1993. A cold shoulder looks good in almost every kind of outfit including dresses, shirts, tops, sari blouses and even gowns.
So what is actually a cold shoulder..! A cold shoulder is a cut out shoulder in an outfit. This cut out flashes your shoulders in the otherwise covered outfit. It has been seen that the shoulders are the least affected by aging and hence exposing a little part of them definitely adds oomph to the outfit. The result is that you end up looking sexier.
I am so much in love with this trend. I recently bought a navy blue Faballey cold shoulder top. I paired this so floral and feminine top with a military green Vero Moda shorts. Check the image below to see how I looked.
Recently many celebrities have been spotted flaunting a cold shoulder. International model Kendal Jenner was also seen wearing a cold shoulder crop top on the cover of the US Vogue magazine April 2016 issue. No doubt she looked smoldering hot in the cold shoulder. Bollywood actress Sonam kapoor wore a cream gown with cold shoulders at Cannes 2016 and definitely looked stunning.
Don't confuse a cold shoulder with an off shoulder
A cold shoulder has a cut out or a hole in the place of the shoulders and hence they have straps. It is a subtle and sexy way of showing off your shoulders.
However an off shoulder have no straps. The sleeves start from below the shoulders that is the sleeves are off the shoulder. Off shoulder can sometimes be uncomfortable because the sleeves are held to your arms by an elastic which can sometimes even leave marks. Whereas this is not the case in a cold shoulder.
So what you waiting for ladies. Lay your hands on a cold shoulder outfit and be a trendsetter. I am sure gonna do that...!!
