The off-the-shoulder style, though dating back to the 1800s during the victorian era, was revived as a fashion trend by Brigitte Bardot in the 1960s, which is why this style is known as the ‘Bardot’ style.

The Bardot style family has branched out into many different variations such as strapped, semi and collared Bardot. More and more designers have been jumping on this trend and reinventing it to suit their personal aesthetic.

On a more mainstream level, the off-the-shoulder look is a must-have in any summer wardrobe. With so many options available, there's a style that is flattering on any body size and silhouette.

Shifting from its commonplace on dresses, this trend is now found in jumpsuits, sweaters, tops, bodysuits and swimwear. This fun and flirty look is sure to turn heads…and shoulders.
