Dare to Bare (your shoulders)

Cold shoulder on a warm day at The Ritz Carlton Palm Springs

Say good-bye to last year’s crop tops, the shoulders are this season’s new erogenous zone! With this hot trend in full swing, finding a comfortable strapless bra that will fit under a variety of top styles and cuts is crucial. Wacoal’s best-selling Red Carpet Strapless Bra fits like a glove and really stays put, thanks to the slip resistant silicone band, so you don’t have to worry about wardrobe malfunctions! This style is a hit when it comes to weddings, proms, or simply summer holidays because of its versatility and support , and did I mention it was the #1 strapless underwire bra in 2015*?  A warm weather must-have!

When Wacoal asked me to talk about my thoughts on the hottest look this spring, the off-the-shoulder trend immediately came to mind. This style dominated the runways with many designers offering up a variety of cold shoulder and off-the-shoulder cuts. The look is equal parts feminine and modern and moves effortlessly from day to night. I can’t get enough of it mainly because there are so many ways you can pull it off, from ultra feminine to relaxed and casual. Here are my top picks to get the look...

Four ways to wear the trend

Go for glam with a floral maxi dress with cold shoulders. It’s so easy to throw on and is bound to turn heads! Style it out with a pair of flats or clean white sneakers depending on your mood. Rebecca Minkoff ‘Mindy’ Dress

If you’d prefer something more form fitting, try a striped off the shoulder top. Dress it down with a pair of denim shorts or dress it up with a flowing mid-length skirt and heels. This look nails the nautical trend, which has also been a huge hit on the runways this season. Alice + Olivia ‘Grant’ Off the Shoulder Top
