Utilize Fun Cutouts to Add Modernity to Your Wardrobe
Cold Shoulder? Yes, Please! How to Easily Utilize Fun Cutouts to Add Modernity to Your Wardrobe
If you want to add a fun, subtle bit of sexiness to any outfit, opt for a cute cold shoulder top or cut-out clothes. Show off a little skin (or a lot) in cutout outfits. Cutout clothes work for every kind of day, from a casual summer top, to workout clothes, and even alluring cocktail dresses. Cutouts are versatile and can be found in t-shirts, sweaters, bodysuits, and more. Think of cutouts as an extension of the ripped denim that is so popular now! We’ll tell you how to easily add some cold shoulder tops and other fun cutout pieces to your wardrobe to add a modern 2022 touch to your closet.
What Exactly is a Cold Shoulder Top?
A cold-shoulder top is similar to an off-the-shoulder top, except it features straps or full-sleeves with cut-outs at the shoulders. The extra fabric helps give you some more support on top and anchors the top in place. (No more not being able to raise your arms above your head, which is typically the case with an off-the-shoulder top!) It is also a much more versatile shoulder-baring style that can be worn in every kind of setting, including for formal or business events. The slight flash of skin makes it a sexy, yet modest, look that flatters everyone!
Why You Need Cute Cold Shoulder Tops
Cute cold shoulder tops are the trend that never goes out of style! If you’re wondering if cold shoulder tops are still “in,” all you have to do is see the queen of country music, Dolly Parton, wearing hers to know they absolutely are still a popular trend to invest in. In fact, it’s such a popular trend that it’s for all seasons now—not just for summer. We love cute cold shoulder tops because they are a look that every single woman can rock, no matter her size or style! Even if you’re not the type to typically show off your shoulders (or any skin) on a daily basis, it’s a fun trend to try on a night out or even on a vacation!
Tips for How to Wear Cut Out Tops
We think one of the best things about this trend is that it works well for absolutely every woman. However, If you’re still unsure if you’re ready to rock the cut-out top trend, we have some expert styling tips to help you master this look. (And we know you’ll look fabulous!)
Keep the Focus on Top
Your off-the-shoulder top is most likely the statement piece of your outfit, so keep all eyes on your shoulders by wearing something less dramatic on the bottom.
Create a Relaxed Look
Match your cold shoulder top with your favorite pair of jeans for a more relaxed look that can be worn anytime!
Style a Cold Shoulder Top for Work
Yes, this trend is so versatile it can even be worn in (most) workplaces! Pair your cold shoulder top with business-appropriate pants and heels or flats for a modest and elegant work look.
Build a Balanced Look
If your cold shoulder top is more billowy, make sure to choose a bottom that is more form-fitted to create a balanced, figure-flattering outfit.
Pick the Right Accessories
If you’re wearing a cold shoulder top, skip the necklace and bracelet that will distract from your unique neckline, and instead opt for a pair of statement earrings to dress up your look. (Might we recommend our Faux Granite Cutout Circle Earrings, jewelry’s answer to the cutout trend?)
