50 Reasons to Embrace Spring's Off-the-Shoulder Trend
It's time to dig out your strapless bra, as one of Spring's key trends straight off the catwalks is bared shoulders. Off-the-shoulder dresses and tops were seen at the likes of Jenny Packham, Zac Posen, and Tibi's Spring/Summer 2015 shows, and you can also apply this look to jumpsuits and playsuits as we enter the warmer-weather season. There are all sorts of options with this style that mean no matter what your shape, you'll find a flattering way to embrace bare shoulders, from structured, formfitting approaches à la Grease's Sandy (postmakeover) to free-flowing boho takes that tap into that '70s trend too. Whatever the occasion (yes, even weddings — drape a silk pashmina over your shoulders for church ceremonies) and however much skin you're comfortable showing, we've found the perfect shoulder-baring outfit for you, from body-con, skater, maxi, and midi dresses to midriff-baring crop tops and long-sleeved tunics.
