The term ‘cold shoulder’ doesn’t necessarily have the greatest track record. To ‘give someone the cold shoulder’ literally means to ignore them deliberately. Chances are you’ve had this happen to you, but the good news is… that was probably in middle school and we’ve all come a long way since the days of Lisa Frank folders and having MASH determine our future.
Pages and pages of trending blogs and magazine columns will pop up if you take a hot second and Google ‘cold shoulder trend’. No eighth grade drama anywhere to be found and according to Elle, Glamour and New York Fashion Week, exposed shoulders are the greatest trend of 2016.
Style Director and blogger Bobby Schuesslers’ post ‘The #1 Trend That Looks Good On All Ages’ he writes ‘During a recent meeting with Sarah Rutson, VP of global buying at Net-a-Porter, Rutson confirmed that the cold-shoulder trend is incredibly flattering for all women because everyone’s shoulders look great. It’s so true—what a beautiful part of the body to show off.’
Whether you’re floating through your early 20’s, rocking your 40’s, or killin it in your 50’s and 60’s… your shoulders are one of your greatest attributes! Why wouldn’t you show them off?!
Whether you’d like to keep your outfit easy or dress it up for a date night out, there are a
dozen cold shoulder dresses to choose from at The Loft. An absolute favorite in my summer closet is without a doubt this soft and breezy cold shoulder dress [pictured below].
I can throw it on over a swim suit at the beach or pair it with my favorite wedges and a long necklace for a night out.
Not only are cold shoulder dresses a must have, but any cold shoulder top or blouse is also something you’ve gotta have this summer!
Each top is incredibly flattering and comfortable to pair with jeans, or even shorts for the warm days. This redefined trend of 2016 is something you have to be a part of. Shop our online cold shoulder collection here or visit us in store to see for yourself what a little cold shoulder can do.
