Cold Shoulders

Donna Karan said, “The only place you never gain weight is your shoulder”. So wahey! Exposed shoulders are here to stay- which quite frankly thank goodness as this SS16 trend made me buy at least 6 pieces over the summer months. Yes it is a bit overkill but with Editd stating that sales have increased 140% with regards to 'off the shoulder pieces'- I'm reassured that society agrees with my taste. Designers embodied any piece they could from shoulder cutouts as seen in London to completely exposed collarbones in New York. Shoulder-baring looks had a retro influence during the Paris AW16 shows. Exposed shoulders were seen at Chanel, Dion Lee and Emilia Wickstead with knitwear and ladylike dresses at Dior. Exposed shoulders were ballet inspired at Valentino. I for one, like to cover up, but even I am enjoying this classy expose of skin. This time round though, up the ante with inflated proportions with bellowing sleeves-Ellery is a sure winner for this. For those with a smaller purse, try Chicwish. If you’re going to embrace peek-a-boooing a bit of skin but you don’t have the confidence, the shoulders are your best bet.  

My Key Designer Go To's:, Opening Ceremony, Johanna Ortiz, Self Portrait and Ellery.
