So this hot new trend, uhhhh, cool new trend in clothing for the summer is the “cold shoulder” look. You know, where your shoulders say ‘hello’ and you have sleeves on the rest of your arm. (look below)
The thing about having been around for awhile is this, you see trends come, go, then come around again. Some trends linger. . . this one has lingered and grown. About 5 years ago I bought a beautiful top. It’s sheer with the cropped front and longer back (another “trend” in play right now) and cold shoulders. I’m a classic kindda gal who also doesn’t change sizes very much so I usually buy pieces I think will last. Yes, I do still have the top.
Fast forward a few years and everywhere I look I’m seeing cold shoulder blouses with long tails and short fronts. Intuit much?! Funny how that works. So, this summer I’m grabbing a couple more cold shoulders and having a bit of fun. I started with this blouse by OASAP. I found them on Instagram (follow me on IG) and fell in love. . . how could you not? They have tops, bottoms, accessories (check out my earrings) and more at unbelievable prices.
I get excited because if I’m going to be “trendy” I don’t want to pay a ton for it since trends change. . . Now, if I find a lovely “classic” piece, I will dish the dough cause, I have some things in my closet that are over 15 years old and still look A-MA-ZING!
You’re Worth It
Let’s not start with the negative self-talk “that’s for young people” “that won’t look good on me” or “My shoulders are too _______” oh, I know where you’re going! This trend is for anyone willing to put a bit of sexy on! It doesn’t take into consideration any of the things you’re thinking about, it just wants you to feel and look amazing.
I have to admit I thought I’d feel uncomfortable with this top. It’s got straps and a slight ‘V’ front and sleeves that fall off my arm, how is any of that comfy. Then I put it on and nothing fell out (not that I have much to fall out, but that’s not the point). It was easy to maneuver in, play in and relax in stress free!
The top is super light so it’s like you’re naked. A quick glance down reassured me I was still dressed and looking ubber hot!
Hey, have some fun shopping. . . I’ve been to the department stores, they don’t have a beat on you, or me. Clothes catered to our “age” are not as fun!
