Ways to wear the cold shoulder trend this summer

With Issa, Rebecca Minkoff and many others showcasing the cold shoulder trend on the catwalk earlier this year, we’re not surprised it has taken over the high street this summer.

Dare to bare with an off-shoulder top or show some skin in a cool cold shoulder shape. With so many styles available, there’s something to suit everyone in our new cold shoulder collection.

Check out our style suggestions below and take this shoulder-baring trend straight to the streets this summer.


The Cold Shoulder Dress

This monochrome cold shoulder dress is high on our summer must-have list. It may be black, but its cut and shape makes it great for keeping cool in the sun. Perfect for city breaks, this versatile dress will take you straight from day to night.

Layer with a denim jacket and sunglasses for a day of sightseeing then add a pair of black wedged sandals to head straight out for cocktails. Top off the look with tan accessories for an added summer feel.

The Cold Shoulder Cami

We love this versatile cold shoulder cami top featuring a bright coral and navy print, guaranteed to draw admiring glances all summer long.

Pair with slim leg ankle grazers, espadrilles and big frame sunglasses for a cool casual look.

The Peasant Top

Channel bohemian chic and let this off-shoulder peasant top do the talking this summer. From the way it perfectly hugs your shoulders to its bold coral and navy print, there’s nothing we don’t love about this on-trend staple.

We suggest keeping the rest of your outfit toned down when it comes to this statement piece. Pair with a white twill skirt or jeans and finish off with tan and gold accessories for a hot holiday look.
