10 Ways To Wear The Cold Shoulder

It’s in stores, it’s on Instagram, it’s everywhere – it’s the cold shoulder top, and it’s by far the hottest, most recognizable trend of 2017!

What is the cold shoulder?

The cold shoulder is a unique cut of women’s tops. Shoulders are bared through oval cut-outs, but everything else is covered and there’s no need for strapless or specialty bras! Cold shoulders are finding their way in to everything – casual tees, tidy blouses, and flowing dresses.

Our Style Experts at Windsor Crossing made a list of their top 10 cold shoulder looks of the season. Check it out for some cold-shoulder inspiration to add to your wardrobe:

Classic Tee Reimagined
Are you sporty? A rocker? Or just a plain jeans-and-a-tee kind of girl? Whatever your go-to tee may be, there’s an on-trend cold shoulder version for you. Find yours at Urban Planet or Maurices.

Weekends Around The House
Comfy, slouchy, soft, cozy – the cold shoulder is versatile enough to keep you chill AND stylish while you enjoy your weekends at home. Pair these tops with comfy lounge pants or leggings and get your veg on. Maurices is hands-down the go-to spot for comfy-casual cold shoulder pieces.

Cute Rompers
It’s not just the cold shoulder that’s in style this season – the romper is making a big come back! Pair the two trends together with these options. Urban Planet and Maurices have some great cold-shoulder romper options.
