Re: cold shoulder etc. styles ?

Chicos had several during the last few months.  They didn't move.  Most ladies said they didn't like them.

I like them, but in the summer, I would get too cold in winter!

I don't like them and wouldn't wear them. I have seen a lot of them out there in the marketplace. I saw a woman wearing one in the doctor's office a few months ago; didn't like the look.

I do like some of the cold shoulder tops as I have broad shoulders. What I don't like is an exagerated cutout so that it shows more than your shoulder. I saw a young woman with a red plaid cold shoulder lumberjack shirt but instead of a cold shoulder, she was showing off her beefy upper arms.

No, I don't care for the look. Same goes for keyholes in the front. Either show some skin or cover up; none of that peek-a-boo- here's two inches of skin.

They are in all the stores now too.   Honestly, Slinky has been doing them for at least 10 years.  But now they are everywhere and they'v morphed from summer wear to year round wear.  I don't like the look so you won't find any in my closet.

Re: cold shoulder etc. styles ?

Chrystaltree is right about the timeline.  About ten years ago Slinky (HSN) and George Simonton (QVC) were the only lines I saw with cold shouldered tops.  SInce then the style has crept into all levels of fashion lines from the lowest end up to the high end chic brands.  It seems to be red hot right now. I've tried to like it, but have never kept a purchased cold shoulder item.  I have narrow shoulders and slender Pilates trained upper arms, so my dislike isn't based on the style not being flattering on me.  It's just one of those things (similar to how I feel about 3/4 length sleeves).

I do not care for them either.

Re: cold shoulder etc. styles ?

The only look I liked is when Princess Diana wore a black dress and it was cold shoulder but actually was strapless but had the very short sleeves that were slightly hanging down (bad description, I know) but if you remember her getting out of the car and walking into the affair, she was stunning. :catvery-happy:  The other cold shoulder mess is just that -- a mess !      Cat Very Happy
