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....
Go For Frills
This tip is great for the ladies with a smaller bust. A large frill enhances the bust area, whilst making the shoulders look dainty, feminine and petite. Plus, what more excuses do we need to feel girly and pretty? Make sure you balance out the shape of the frills on the top with a plain or tight fitting bottoms, other wise it could look a bit gypsy-esque.

Like all tricky trends, this one comes with a cheat card. If you don't like baring all of your shoulders, try an off shoulder number with additional straps. It rocks the cut out trend at the same time and well, hey, at least it won't fall down...

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.
