In case you’ve been living under a rock of late, you’ll have noticed that the Brigitte Bardot-inspired off-the-shoulder look is EVERYWHERE! Between that and the ongoing cold shoulder trend, shoulder-baring styles are definitely the way forward for spring/summer.

This look is summery, flattering and there’s a shoulder-baring style for literally every occasion. From casual weekend looks to chic bridesmaid dresses, here’s our roundup of styles to help you showcase your shoulders this summer...


Shoulder-baring styles don’t have to be too revealing, in fact some cold-shoulder designs are subtle enough for a day in the office. Team this abstract print blouse with smart, tailored trousers for a chic work look with an on-trend twist.

Wedding guest

If you have an invitation to a wedding this season, this pretty cold shoulder dress is a great choice. The dipped hem is a flattering, on-trend detail, and the dusky pink shade is perfect for weddings. Team with contrasting black heels and clutch bag to really make the colour pop.


Perhaps you’re planning a wedding and looking for an off-the-shoulder look for your bridesmaids? If so, this stunning Bardot maxi dress could fit the bill. The purple shade is flattering and the layered, scalloped bodice is intricately hand embellished to give your big day some extra sparkle.


Update your casual summer wardrobe with this vintage-look cold-shoulder band t-shirt. Available in grey and black, this summer essential comes in a lightweight stretch fabric and is the perfect partner for ripped skinny jeans.

Date night

Nothing says sexy like a Bardot neckline, and nothing says romance like roses, making this Bardot blouse the perfect choice for your next date night. Black crepe fabric provides the background for an embroidered red rose, and the flared bell sleeves are an on-trend addition. Complete your outfit with dark blue skinny jeans and heels.


An off-the-shoulder sleeve combined with a high neckline is perfect for formal occasions this season. Our lace trim Bardot dress comes in a feminine coral shade (a great choice for weddings), but if it’s more of a black tie event opt for versatile and flattering navy.

Holiday essential

If you’re jetting off somewhere hot this season, make sure you pack this pinstripe Bardot dress. The blue and white stripes give this piece a nautical feel, and the delicate butterfly print adds a playful twist. Loose-fitting and comfortable, this dress will take you from beach to bar in style.
