Made famous by the French bombshell, Bridget Bardot, one of the favourite looks for the summer is the off shoulder top. Just in time for the warm weather and festival season, the ‘Bardot’ is a classic summer piece to have. A white off-shoulder broderie top or black lace brings a quirky and natural sultriness that Bardot herself had down to a tee.
For the festival season wear it with high-waisted shorts or a mid length skirt.
For the city look, pair it with high-waisted boyfriend jeans, a loose fitted blazer, sandals and you are ready to take the town.
This is great for those girls, who like me are a bit flat chested; say hello to the new cleavage, accentuating those shoulders and elongating the neck, giving you an elegant air to make you stand out in a crowd.
Get the look from stores like Missguided and Topshop starting at just £20.
Embrace your inner free spirit and in the words of the French, embrace le bohéme chic.
