If you had to choose just one trend to define the 2016 collection, it would have to be the off-the-shoulder silhouette. Seen on runways everywhere, exposed shoulders are this season’s playful antidote to years of minimalism. Even better, it’s a look that appeals to girls of every taste. Whether your style is classic, romantic, or thrift-store bohemian, an off-the-shoulder blouse can go from day to night; leaving plenty of room for accessorizing, especially with earrings; and offers a skin-baring option for girls who prefer not to expose their arms or décolletage.
The cold shoulder felt — and looked — good for pre-fall, as designers showed shoulder-bearing ruffled tops and sleek gowns.
