Shoulders are getting a lot of play this season. Halters, off-the-shoulder tops, and cut-out shoulder tops and dresses have been cropping up everywhere lately.
Originally I wasn’t too keen on this new trend – off-the-shoulder tops were enough for me, thanks. But the more I see them, the more I like them. It’s an interesting silhouette that we haven’t seen over and over again. It’s definitely more comfortable to wear than an off-the-shoulder top you have to tug on all night to stay in place. And the cut-out shoulders also provide a soft ruffle effect that’s flirty and pretty and just right for the spring and summer. Ladies, I’m calling it – this summer is all about the shoulders. Take a look at these cut-out shoulder pieces to get summer-ready and inspired:
Cut-Out Shoulder T-Shirt
This flowy Zara top will take you easily from day to night. If you work in an office with a lax dress code, you may even be able to get away with this at work. Pair it with slim black trousers and heels for a polished look.
T-Shirt with Cut-Out Shoulders
Stay cool and casual all summer with this simple tee. The colour looks like orange sorbet, which obviously makes it perfect for the summer.

For a more structured and polished look, check out this blazer that has cut-out shoulders. Style it for the evening by wearing it with ripped jeans and open-toe booties.
Le Fou by Wilfred Kaarlo Dress
If having full cut-out shoulders isn’t your thing, you can get a hint of the trend with this pretty dress from Aritzia that has a subtle crochet pattern on the shoulder.
