What’s a #coldshoulder? It’s simply another term for the off-shoulder style. Why is it relevant? Girls love the pretty, easy-chic vibe and when styled right, it can look très chic! Why did we, at BandraRoad, decide to dedicate a post to it? Why not?! Here are 5 simple ways to style this look:

1. The cold shoulder dress

Peasant dresses and tops with off-shoulders are adorable. We suggest you find one in a bright colour or a tropical print. Remember, go minimal on the accessories but play up the look with a pair of gladiator chappals.

2. Shoulder cut-offs with dungarees

We can’t even begin to explain how the dungarees have made a comeback with a bang! What’s even more exciting, is that you can wear them in so many interesting ways… Teaming ’em with a soft baggy top with a shoulder cut-off is one way to go.

3. The one cold shoulder top

With all the denim talk, we forget that the crisp cargo shorts can be equally cool. The fluidity of a one-shouldered chiffon top will balance the stiffness of a tailored pair of cargo khaki and give it a cute style boost.

4. The one shoulder statement shirt

If you can’t spot one, simply snip a shoulder off your tailored shirt. Trust us, it’s a statement look to upgrade your Sunday brunch outfit.

5. A spaghetti summer dress worn with a loose cover-up exposing a shoulder

Take a page out of musician and actress, Monica Dogra‘s style file. Fluid jackets and cover-up aren’t all supposed to be worn while resting on your shoulders. Especially if you’re in a spaghetti strapped look or a tube top. Let the jacket dangle off a shoulder to add that sensual but relaxed vibe to the overall look.
