    Cold Shoulder

    Cold Shoulder

    Cold shoulder, off-the-shoulder, ruffle blouse or whatever you call this style of top have taken the fashion world by storm. Zara, Topshop, H&M and even Next have a variant fit for any fashionista’s wardrobe.
    In my opinion, the cold shoulder trend is very versatile, hence why I love it so much. It can be dressed up or dressed down depending on preference.

    I searched high and low for the perfect one before settling for this blue one from Zara. It ticked all the boxes of what I was looking for. I wanted some made from some sort of cotton or linen material, long enough to cover my belly and in a vibrant colour.

    What I also found so great about this top is that it provides a certain level of sex appeal with out the wearer actually showing much. Gone are the days when showing legs or cleavage were the only form of sexy. With a little peek of the shoulder, there is enough skin on display without looking trashy.

    My wishlist of these style top is as long as one of the Harry Potter books. I’ve spotted some in River Island, Mango and New Look that have left me wanting buy, buy, buy.
