Say Hello to Dramatic Shoulders & Sleeves this Season

Some summer trends are loved by all fashionable women and made to stay with us for more than one season. Cold shoulders had made an appearance last spring-summer and they are here to stay (read slay). Along with that, comes an array of shoulder and sleeve trends that’s going to enhance the look book of SS’18. These artsy and trendy silhouettes will definitely make you feel all glam and on top of your style game! So, welcome aboard these dramatic sleeves and shoulders this spring-summer with Lifestyle and make the whole world know how you rock these modern makeovers!


Off-Shoulder Is On

When you don’t know what to wear, yet want to make a scintillating appearance, show the world your shoulders and the rest is history. The boho-chic off-shoulder silhouette helps give structure to any outfit, making the body look leaner. Want to make a breath-taking impression on a first dinner date? Well, bare it in style in an off-shoulder dress, accessorized with a sleek metallic belt at the waist and sky-high pumps. You can even pair this trendy silhouette in the form of tops or blouses with high waist dressy pants or tailored trousers with side pockets in neutral hues for a quick coffee look or a movie date outfit!


Bell Sleeves making it Big

Bell sleeves are the perfect mix of fun & drama, and are ideal for making a trendy fashion statement! Though there are variations in structure and style all the way from clean flared lines to those with more ruffles and cascades, every stylish girl loves them all. You can either go the full-volume way and pair the chic bell sleeve top with culottes or ruffled midi skirts for a fun boho look. You can even opt for a bell-sleeved summer dress and accessorize the look with a belt and large hoop earrings. Glam up your LBD quotient by choosing one with dramatic bell sleeves, and with a chunky statement necklace & sky-high pumps, you will turn heads for sure!


The Sassy Cold-Shoulder

If you don’t want to flaunt your pretty shoulders fully, then cold-shoulders is the style for you! They give full coverage apart from the cheeky circles on both shoulders and let’s face it; it’s cool without being OTT. This universally-flattering style has made its comeback since the 80s and it is here for good. You can flaunt a sheer chiffon cold-shoulder blouse tucked into a denim pencil skirt and chic heels for a stylish lunch date look, or go the casual way with a cold shoulder floral peasant top, ripped denims and sneakers. You can even add this style to your party dress collection, to be paired with tie-up heels and a glam-chic pout.


The Perfect Puff-Up

Sometimes bigger is better and this is one of them. This spring-summer, go for voluminous puffed-up sleeves that feature larger-than-life details. Go for pieces with exaggerated sleeves that make you a runway star off the ramp. Romantic and feminine, these sleeves can be donned through sheer blouses paired with mini skirts and ladylike heels. For a stronger street vibe, go for skater dresses with puffed-up sleeves and sneakers with varsity socks while a rock-chic version calls for crop tops with voluminous sleeves paired with denim shorts and boots. So, unleash your dramatic soul and embrace these trendy sleeves – the bigger, the better!


This season, it’s all about the sharp and uber-stylish sleeve and shoulder silhouettes which are all set to become the unofficial uniform of the fashion squad. The above trends are here for the long haul and if you want to be one of the trendsetters, get going and give your wardrobe ‘dramatic shoulder & sleeve’ makeover from Lifestyle!
