A year and half back this time of the year both Cheeky Ninja and I would cry about the heat and summer and wait for monsoon. If you follow us on Instagram, you would see how our emotions are diametrically opposite now about the sun. She enjoys the American summer time while am hating the hot sunny days in India.The only thing making the heat bearable in Mumbai is my summer hair-cut. I had been toying with the idea of a hair make over for some time now, the heat just made me cut it short.
The other thing I am in love with this summer is off shoulder and peek-a-boo cut out shoulder trend. This trend from the 90s is all over the runway from Michael Kors to Prabal Gurung and in India, designer like Payal Singhal, Anupama Dayal and Manish Malhotra. It is flirty, flatters the body & hides all the flab; and can be worn as dresses, tops even wedding gowns.
Unlike many runway trends, this is universally flattering irrespective of body size, shape, age or style and hides all the flab. It is the perfect way to ease yourself into showing a little skin, flirty while still leaving enough to the imagination. Here are sneaky tips to style off shoulder trend basis your body shape.
- Off shoulder are fantastic for those with pear or hourglass shaped figures, as it balances out the proportions. Keep the cut and style fuss free and let your curves talk.
- Off the shoulder and wide necklines which have large ruffles or bell sleeves, will lengthen shoulders and perfect for the straight body shape.
- If you are apple shape peek-a-boo cut outs or one shoulder works like a charm.
