One look at our shop section below, and you’ll notice that cold shoulder tops have not just conquered regular dressing, but also the sportswear world. It seems that not only is the thought of showing off a patch of skin tempting on a night out, but the same applies to attending a new class or squeezing in an at-home workout before dinner. The point is really to show off just a bit, giving the wandering eye a small glimpse into what could be.
The designer that really mastered the style and cut is without a doubt Monse – creating Met Gala gowns, evening tops, everyday tops and the perfect wardrobe essential by only adding that cold shoulder (often also draped) detail. It’s truly become the brand’s signature, and a staple on the runway and street style shots. While we’re admiring Monse’s designs from afar, we compiled a few of our favorites that are deemed more affordable and accessible right now.
Since real spring weather hasn’t yet been forecasted, we’ll be switching out our floral midi dresses for a cold shoulder sweater – the shoulder cut works on any type of garment, not forgetting one-piece swimsuits, bikinis and sports bras! It’s a fun, flirty and elegant way to show skin without overdoing it. Sometimes all it needs is for the sleeve of an oversized sweater to pop down on one shoulder, and you instantly created a new look.
Shop 30+ cold shoulder pieces, ranging from tops to dresses!
