Last week on Instagram, I asked for thoughts about the cold shoulder dress I was wearing and, in general, how ladies felt about the trend.  I received an overwhelming response, mostly women erring on the side of positivity.  But there where a few naysayers out there, which is what I LOVE about fashion trends.  They’re just not for everybody and there’s nothing wrong with that.  But I do have to say, that despite those naysayers (if you let me get a hold of them, style them in the right piece, I guarantee I’ll change their minds) the cold shoulder trend is one that I am in support of for a few reasons.   So hear me out, naysayers.

Should You Give Cold Shoulder Dress Trend a Try?

There is admittedly a wave of fashion trends that have hit the streets over the course of the last season.  One of those being the cold shoulder trend.  Have you heard of this trend yet?  In my line of work, I watch trends and then decide whether or not to introduce them into my own wardrobe or mention that clients and friends should give them a try too.  Some I hold off on and some, well, some I wear with abandon.  The later of which just happens to be how I feel about the cold shoulder dress trend.  Let’s chat a bit about why, shall we?

Let me clarify quickly, the difference between the off the shoulder (OTS) trend and the cold shoulder trend. OTS tops and dresses have no support or straps around the shoulder.  Plainly, they are meant to be worn pulled down around the top part of your arms.  Now, cold shoulder dresses and tops have some type of support on the shoulders, be it a spaghetti strap or other wider style strap, with an opening where the shoulder is, and then connecting again at the arms to create a sleeve.  The difference is one bears more skin than the other.  One provides more support (ie: you can wear a bra) than the other.

Why the Cold Shoulder Dress Trend Would Look Good on You…

Now, why should you love the cold shoulder trend in spring and summer?  Simply stated, I think that the shoulders are some of the most beautiful parts of a woman’s body.  And it’s a great way to show off some skin, if you will, without being too trashy.  It’s also a great update on a basic shirt (that we all have a million of) so why not switch it up a bit?  You don’t have to spend a fortune on a cold shoulder top or dress to try the trend.  In fact, I’d recommend NOT spending a whole lot of money on this trend if you aren’t super open to rocking it.  Why would you spend a fortune on anything you don’t absolutely love???

Here’s a little advice when making your first cold shoulder trend purchase.  Try on multiple styles to experiment with the fit.  Not all tops and dresses will fit the same.  If the arms are too tight? Find a cold shoulder top that has no elastic band around the arm.  If the fit isn’t flattering, wait on it and try a different store with another style of cold shoulder pieces.  They are all going to fit in their own way, so don’t judge until you’ve given a few pieces, at different stores, a try.
