The cold shoulder is a hot trend right now. Cut out shoulders are an easy way to add some sex appeal to any look without showing a whole lot of skin. Of course, you can show more skin if you like.
This style of shirt comes in all formats from casual tees to detailed lace to flowing florals. Some tops have barely there straps while others have enough width to conceal a bra.Balance out volume on top with something fitted on the bottom like skinny jeans, pencil skirts or shorts.
For apple shapes, look for longer tops with some flowiness or volume. Hourglass figures will look better with cropped or belted tops that emphasize a narrow waist.
For summer, these cut out shoulder tops are a fabulous way to keep cool but don’t forget the sunscreen! They also work under a cardigan or blazer for the office and cool nights.
