Not a fan of the current crop top trend? Time to rejoice! This season, we will be swapping abs (and maybe flabs, if you’re me) for a saucy, fifties off the shoulder trend, or bardot if you speak french.

No sure how to bare shoulder and pull off the trend? Here’s my tips for how to look more bardot-chic and less gypsy….

Whether plumed, or bell edged, voluminous sleeves add some shape and definition to this trend. Try mixing voluminous sleeves with different patterns and textures for a really unique vibe. Once again, keep the bottom half plain and tight fitted to avoid looking like a tea cozy.
